Due to the effects of COVID-19, we have seen majority of professionals across Ireland now working from home. Quickly adapting to a remote Irish workforce, tech-enabled recruitment solutions are allowing organisations to continue business as usual operations, with the ability to screen, interview and hire talent through these unprecedented times.
While investing in the right talent is key to business continuity, for many employers, hiring a remote workforce is navigating completely new territory. But why is it important to invest in talent now, more than ever?
In our remote onboarding series, we explore principles, practices, and tips for hiring managers can making the shift to onboarding remotely. Take a look at why you should still make an employment offer.
Pre COVID-19, there was a business need for you to hire, so think about why you needed that skill set to begin with. Right now, it’s easy to get lost in the immediate crisis, but you still need the expertise and experience that a candidate can offer long-term, enabling you to remain competitive and boost your business’ bottom-line.
We predict skills shortages will be just as prevalent once we move past COVID-19, so don’t miss the opportunity to onboard specialist talent in short-supply that can choose between multiple employment offers.
With remote working allowing you (as much as possible) to maintain ‘business as usual’ operations, it’s important not to let things ground to a halt – it’s still possible to hire and onboard talent to ensure your business keeps making headway and stays resilient.
