The Covid-19 emergency has undoubtedly had a radical impact on the world as we know it: social distancing procedures and business lockdown strongly changed our behaviours and attitudes in a way that we could barely have foreseen.
After having established new procedures and a platform to keep us as safe as possible, now more than ever we are seeking ways to help the economy recover from the crisis and move towards the new reality. At such a critical time, it’s crucial that every investment generates a rapid and quantifiable return: to help overcome the challenges of recovering post pandemic we need to count on companies and people who produce tangible value, who provide superior products and who guarantee service delivery. This is vital to help us develop our businesses in response to the new market realities.
the shape of the “new normal”: a new way of recruiting
Due to the outbreak, organisations all over the world are making changes to the way they operate. When the virus first spread, what initially happened was that many sectors of the recruitment market literally shut down. On top of this, huge swathes of the market have been mandated to close their operations (e.g. most retail and hospitality businesses, entertainment, high street retail and travel). All these needed to find a brand-new way of operating, to be able to come back fast to the market and restart operations.
On the flip side, there were certain market segments that experienced a sudden rise of requirements and personnel as a result of the COVID crisis. These included healthcare, logistics and delivery services, maintenance services as well as grocery and supermarket industries.
The Covid-19 pandemic also brought with it a huge change within recruitment: the shift of ‘power’ from jobseekers to recruiters. In fact, due to the global emergency and its enormous impacts on economies and businesses, unemployment has been dramatically rising: which means job searches now are growing whilst at the same time the number of available vacancies is decreasing (or increasing in proportion to the number of new searches).
Consequently, this means that many candidates may be forced to change their mindset, searching for jobs in new industries and applying for vacancies that do not precisely match their skillset and their background.
