How to Adapt Your Hiring Strategy to Changing Trends | Future Force Personnel

Hiring is challenging not only because it’s difficult to find skilled, dependable people, but the economy keeps changing, and trends keep shifting. Add to that the COVID-19 pandemic, the Great Resignation, upcoming Baby Boomer retirements, and a new hybrid and remote work climate, and it’s a lot to navigate your way through when you’re hiring. Here are some strategies to help you adapt your hiring approach to all these changing winds, so you can build a strong, successful team.

How Can You Adapt Your Hiring Strategy to Changing Trends?

Allow employees to work flexibly.

While many experts expected the remote and hybrid workplace to slow down after the pandemic, it now seems like it’s here to stay. Embrace it. You’ll be able to keep employees happy, recruit better quality people faster, and retain your top performers since they can work flexibly.

If you can’t allow your team to work remotely, offer a hybrid schedule or a flexible schedule. That way, they can work where and when they are most productive. It’s a win for both of you.

Use data to make better hiring decisions.

Hiring the right fit people can be challenging. However, with today’s technology, you can collect and measure many different data points and metrics that help you hire better. For instance, look at your time to hire, cost to hire, onboarding efforts, how many people left after six months, salary and benefits, and any other benchmarking tool, like your applicant tracking system, to understand how to hire more effectively.

Develop a positive candidate experience.

Gone are the days when hiring managers could leave candidates in the dark. If that happens today, it will leave a bad taste in their mouth, and they could even call you out on social media. Instead, work to improve your candidate experience so they are kept informed, even if it’s with auto-response emails. Also, be clear with them about what to expect during the hiring process, including the timeframe for a decision. Keeping them in the loop and simply doing what you said you would will go a long in way in helping you win the talent war.
