COVID-19 is a global issue and hit the UK 8 weeks ago and has changed everything for businesses up and down the country including the recruitment industry. The virus is, unsurprisingly, having a catastrophic impact on businesses and the recruitment industry is certainly not immune to that. Businesses are having to adapt quickly in order to survive and it is very possible that the legacy of COVID-19 may forever change the nature of recruitment and the workplace landscape.
What has been the initial impact been on recruitment?
What can we expect over the coming months and post COVID?
In the long term we will see the industry bounce back because it extremely important to the economy, some industries will recover quicker than others. Ultimately will recruitment ever be the same, in honesty no and we may now see the changes we have been looking for in regards to utilising technology to make the process for businesses more efficient along with flexibility in home working and working patterns. Now is the time to pivot and innovate in order to stay ahead of the market.
We are fortunate that as a business we have been utilising video technology for the last 3 years to recruit for our clients so this is nothing new. We have however utilised this time to focus on how we add additional value to our clients as their needs change moving forwards. We are thrilled to be launching additional services that will make our services accessible for all businesses, watch this space next week for further details on that.
