Recruiting practices have changed so much in the past year – 2020 taught us to be prepared for anything and everything. From a global pandemic to racial justice movements, a progression that should’ve happened over a span of years instead happened over a few months. Employers and employees have always been on their toes, never knowing the next step.
Now that we are a few weeks into 2021, we can start thinking about some recruiting trends that will help shape our workforce. To help you prepare for recruiting in 2021, we have put together some predictions for the upcoming year. Follow along to see how we think 2021 will pan out.
- Remote Interviews
Remote interviewing changed the landscape of recruiting in 2020, it was such a hit for so many people, it will more than likely carry over into 2021. This trend was definitely brought on by the global pandemic but many people have adapted to it and learned to love it, so don’t be surprised if it is the go-to in 2021.
2. Remote Work is Here to Stay
When remote work was initially brought into the picture, many employers and employees were skeptical about it. Managing employees from a distance seemed to be scary, but once the pandemic hit, remote work was a must if you wanted to keep your organization running. Remote work has become the new norm, and many employers and employees prefer it over working in-office.
3. Employee Experience
The COVID-19 pandemic brought so many obstacles into the workplace that ended up negatively affecting employee experience. With the new way of life, employers realized the importance of making sure their employees were taken care of – at work and at home. Supporting employees will always be a trend moving forward, making sure they are working in the best environment possible is how to keep everyone happy.
Recruiting will continue to be changing and advancing, so we must stay on top of the current trends so we can continue to create better practices.
