Talent acquisition has shifted significantly in the wake of the “Great Resignation." There’s a fascinating dichotomy happening that those of us in HR, even those who have been doing this work for decades, have never seen before.
On the one hand, there are layoffs in various industries and companies. On the other hand, it is still quite challenging to fill certain positions. Sometimes, these are even happening in the same company – while laying off in one segment, they’re struggling to hire in another. Unfortunately, the skills of those who are being let go are not always transferable to the areas where people are needed.
