Now that the ‘new normal’ has become the norm, how do you attract the best talent? A year ago, flexible working was seen as an easy carrot to offer – now that’s no longer a differentiator. How else can your business attract top talent? By offering greater autonomy, making them feel appreciated, and creating a supportive, positive team environment.
With the impact of the pandemic, the evolving workplace, and different employee mindsets, you will need to be forward-thinking to attract and recruit talented individuals in 2022. To rise above the competition, a practical and “people first” strategy will be required to capture the attention of top talent to get them on board.
Recruiting and attracting a workforce has changed dramatically, especially in the last 18 months; it is no longer a simple case of “if you have a job, you will fill the position”. With borders closed, job security low, immigration stunted - many industries are now seeing the flow on impact of COVID as we face a skilled worker shortage.
As organisations try to quickly execute key objectives such as business recovery, opening new markets, and developing other lines of business, their talent pool will be critical. In the past, best-in-class companies thrived from building a deep bench of permanent talent. Today’s reality has forced a change.
