Spring is just around the corner, and there’s promise in the air. And for weary employers, wouldn’t it be nice to have a little hope that our hiring struggles may ease, soon? I know I’d like to think so! I do think it’s possible, if we continue to be flexible and adaptable to what will be the new hiring world.
I know I sometimes let out a heavy sigh at that, though. How much more changing needs to happen? I can easily get frustrated and remind myself to look at our last decade or so to understand that it isn’t just COVID that has led to the hiring woes of today – really, COVID just brought it all to light at once, but much of it we were facing before our world was suddenly shaken. Understanding the larger picture helps to develop recruitment strategies which may change our luck in finding employees.
