In a previous blog post, we addressed the fact that there is still opportunity in the marketplace, even in the midst of fear and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
And that means different things for different people. This includes job seekers and employers.
For job seekers, it means new and exciting positions with forward-thinking organizations, as well as the chance to work remotely and/or with additional schedule flexibility. But what, exactly, does it mean for employers?
To help answer that question, hearken back to six months ago. That seems like a LONG time ago, doesn’t? It’s almost as if we were living in a different world altogether.
One of the things that was different about the world back then was the fact it was a candidate-driven market. Unemployment was low, quality candidates were scarce, and companies were experiencing difficulty identifying and hiring these candidates for their open positions.
As an employer, there were probably candidates in the marketplace that you absolutely wanted to hire. These were the “cream of the crop,” top talent that would have had an impact on your organization’s bottom line. In fact, some of these candidates were so good, you would have hired them whether you had an open position or not.
Fast-forward six months. The coronavirus (COVID-19) virus appeared. Then the COVID-19 epidemic became a pandemic. Then states all over the country began shutting down. Then the economy took a huge hit.
Despite all of that, superstar candidates who were available prior to the pandemic are still available. They didn’t just disappear. They exist in the workforce, just as they existed six months ago, and the best of them could still provide a substantial amount of value to your organization and positively impact its bottom line.
And right now, plenty of companies are looking for ways to positively impact their bottom line.
During times like these, investing in your organization is a proven way to ensure continued success. And the investment of top talent in the form of new personnel is a prime example of a solid business investment.
The bottom line is that the candidates you want to hire are still available in the marketplace. All you have to do is start looking for them.
