The early months of the COVID-19 pandemic brought a surge in unemployment due to furloughs, hiring freezes, and downsizing across the board. Now, halfway into 2021, a ‘great rehiring’ is finally on the horizon… but organizations shouldn’t go into it with pre-pandemic hiring expectations.

How has hiring changed?

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has completely transformed the job market and, along with it, the hiring landscape. 

In late 2020, Lars van Wieren, Founder and CEO of Starred, outlined three major predictions for the great rehiring:

  • Far more applicants per role
  • A much faster process
  • A fully remote hiring process

In order to meet the demands of job seekers and effectively fulfill staffing needs, organizations should consider seeking assistance from a recruiting firm.

How can a recruiting firm help with the great rehiring?

At a time when HR departments are already overwhelmed with planning for a post-pandemic workplace, it would be impractical to expect them to effectively execute remote recruiting, hiring, and onboarding on such a large scale.

By outsourcing these tasks to an external partner, organizations can dedicate more time and resources to reorganizing and reopening.

Recruiting firms can alleviate companies’ internal workload by

  • Providing support from multiple recruiters to deal with the surge of applicants
  • Streamlining the hiring workflow
  • Working with candidates based out of various locations

Happy Hanukkah!

Whether you spell Hanukkah or Chanukah or one of the many other ways, for Jewish families all across the world tonight begins a time of joy and celebrating with food, gifts and games. After this last year, who wouldn’t welcome a joyful celebration!

Hanukkah begins with the lighting of the first of the menorah candles. For each of the next seven nights, an additional candle is lit until all 8 are glowing. For that reason Hanukkah is also known as the Festival of Lights. It celebrates the victory over a Greek army by a small group of Jewish warriors. In rededicating the Jerusalem temple, they found only a small amount of sacred oil to light the menorah. Miraculously, the oil burned for 8 days.

To all friends who celebrate the holiday we say Chanukah Sameach!
