Recruiting after 2020 and beyond the Covid-19’s devastating effect on our environment, has caused some recruiting management personnel to discuss solutions to the recruiting and interviewing process.
“What’s Next For Recruiting”
Remote work, artificial intelligence, lifestyles, and more have been affecting the “recruiting world” for some time. The Crisis is our trigger to act.
The following is a discussion that is really interesting from the perspective of corporate recruiters working for large organizations. My experience has been very limited at that level and it is very interesting to hear from the mindset of the very large corporate recruiters.
Recruiting in a corporate environment offers us a perspective from a world designed about large business. The structure is usually very developed, with expectations for the Human Resource, Talent Acquisition Specialist, or Recruiting Office, very well defined.
The conversation, below, opened my mind to new perspectives.
The comment regarding crisis element of the Pandemic certainly gives urgency to finding solutions. I believe in the case of remote work, that this has been tested in many cases, for a long time. Networking availability has made remote work so available, that many of our younger workers have been “computer nomads” for some time, already.
Communities all over our world, large and small, are struggling. Small businesses, Service-To-Others organizations, like non-profits are having difficulties staying open. As Mr. Levy, so truthfully, points out, candidates are people and those individuals live in the communities that are serviced by some of our largest corporations.
In the United States, many of our large corporations are well known in the area, and are the major employers locally. Representatives are members of the Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce and are active members of the community. The face of the recruiter, interviewer or HR Department are very familiar to the area locals.
What a wonderful opportunity for the companies to show their true community appreciation, supporting the education and development of the local education opportunities. There are possibilities to help with the local shelters, non-profits and community projects.
Working directly within the community, face-to-face with the people that are part of the local, day-to-day life, puts new meaning to the term customer. When a town gets too spread out, the local connection can get lost in the shuffle. This is a great time for communities to come together on projects that affects each one of us on a very personal level.
As a recruiter this conversation was very inspiring.
Remote Work is a valuable opportunity in the new Recruiting Era after Covid 19. Many organizations have proven experience.
Adaptability, flexibility and finding new and better ways of keeping applicants informed, keeps the “human” involved with the process.
When recruiters remember that “Candidates are People” and understand that the value in the community in which they live, are the people and their families; then changes in the structure of recruiting and work environments can be made through human creativity, by coming together to share ideas.
I wrote this article about recruiting. However, I believe the perspective is really interesting for almost every aspect of our lives. Changes are afoot. How we manage our lives on a day-to-day basis is changing.
The need to find the best solutions seems to be the big challenge ahead of us.
It is important to envision positive, life-affirming, change. From the conversation, our corporate headquarter’s recruiting departments are heading in the right direction. There is definitely a feeling of human connection, less AI, and finding the best solutions for solving the new issues faced by society’s recent pandemic crisis.
Community Spirit and “Service-To-Others” brings about positive change. By offering resources back to the communities they serve, human-to-human connections grow.
