Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, you have probably read countless articles regarding businesses shuttering or making layoffs. And while this may have some companies hesitant to hire during this climate, it’s actually an opportune time to start recruiting. Here’s why:
Your Hiring Process May Take Longer
It’s true; we don’t know exactly how long restrictions will be in place. Even after governors lighten the social distancing restrictions, hiring processes will probably still look a bit different. With many employees working remotely, it may take longer to sift through candidates, coordinate interviews, run background checks, and set up onboarding. Start crafting your job description today so that you can get a head start!
Candidates Are Available
As a result of layoffs and furloughs, there are some incredibly talented candidates on the market today. And once lockdowns are lifted, and states get back to normal, your competition will be scooping them up. By starting your hiring process today, you can get a jump on competitors and hire candidates that previously weren’t even on the market.
You Will Be Able To Hit The Ground Running
Once the world returns back to normal, you’re going to want your team to be fully loaded. In order to hit the ground running, you’ll need employees that have already been onboarded, trained in all the necessary areas, and have had the opportunity to get to know their team. This isolation period is actually the perfect time for your team to train and learn without distractions!
