The past two years have taught us a lot. And we’re still learning and adapting.
We’ve embraced working remotely and all the technology and necessary to make it possible! We’ve learned how to communicate with distributed teams, and we’re still learning how to adjust to a world where we don’t meet people face to face. Yet, there are more challenges we face.
These changes have made the work for recruiters more difficult. HR policies are also still trying to adapt to this new world of work.
So in this week’s summary, I share articles that I hope will give you a better glimpse of the challenges and changes in hiring (from the employer’s side of the desk).
- Where is ageism happening during the hiring process
- The recruiting process of the future
- Vaccination status – where does that go
- Insightful interview questions for candidates
- Recordings and new marketplace
Have a great week! And please share this or any articles with those who would benefit.
