Post-COVID Hiring

January 11, 2021

After the crazy year we’ve had that really flipped the workforce upside down, everyone is just doing their best to resurface and recover. America’s unemployment rate is currently 6.7%, or 10.7 million people resulting from the pandemic. Thankfully, this number has lowered from recent months and companies are now finding themselves in the position to take on more business.

Many industries are ready to accelerate again and open some new hire positions, now that they have adapted in the ways that COVID-19 demands. The possibility of contracting this virus has made on-site jobs far less desirable. People now must take their health into consideration when deciding if a new job is ‘worth the risk.’ Without a generous salary and benefits, on-site jobs are not being filled at the rate they are opening, or even close. The country has hit hiring road blocks before, but nothing like this.

This is where industries need to pay extra attention to their talent acquisition and the source of which they are looking for candidates. Job descriptions, salaries, stipulations, etc. cannot be what they used to for the same results. Without extra compensation, companies are struggling to find the right fits for their vacancies and therefore cannot stay afloat.

Everyone wants to hire the most quality candidates possible that will make sure the job is done right. What we are finding is that in a time of desperation for work, new hires merely take the job that they can get, and do not bring passion and integrity to their new workplace.
