Taken together, the coronavirus pandemic and the protest wave have been a transformative force for recruiting and hiring. On one hand, COVID-19 and climbing unemployment rates are making remote-first processes and carefully structured volume hiring absolute necessities. On the other, the spotlight on social justice and inclusion means hiring processes must be as fair and free of bias as possible. These requirements are not easy to satisfy simultaneously, but with the right mindset, recruiters can turn today’s crisis into a competitive advantage unlike any they’ve had before. You just have to embrace the changes and move to align your processes, people, and technology accordingly.
