Taking the step to hire a new employee is a decision that includes several factors. Besides the obvious, like hashing out who and when you need to hire or getting input from relevant stakeholders, it’s crucial to consider what the current hiring climate is and if it will affect your process.
For the past several years, the hiring has proven to be difficult for a number of reasons – one of them being historically low unemployment rates, hovering at 3.6% towards the end of 2019. While those numbers did carry over to early 2020, the emergence of the coronavirus has caused managers to rethink the process to account for necessary health and safety requirements, like offering remote interviewing and in some cases, fully remote operations.
These factors have understandably created a challenging hiring climate, leading to frustrations for both job seekers and employers. While historically low unemployment is great for the economy, it means a smaller pool of available talent for employers. And even though there are dozens of companies continuing to hire during the pandemic, managers are feeling the pressure when trying to allocate time and money towards their hiring endeavors.
