Five years ago, Covid was non-existent. Hybrid work schedules were just a fantasy. There was no great resignation, and no one had ever heard of “revenge applying.”

The economy was humming. Interest rates were low. People had more stable work backgrounds. Inflation was under control. Employers had not yet learned about Employer Value Propositions. Out-of-state candidates were being flown in for interviews. Microsoft was just launching MS Teams.

In short, things have moved forward rather drastically in the last five years for almost every company in hiring mode in America. So, the question becomes, “Have your recruiting efforts kept up with the changes?

Perhaps you have not transformed your website into the advanced recruitment tool it can be. Maybe you have been too busy to establish an employee referral program or develop a compelling employer brand. Perhaps your onboarding system Is inadequate and does not create the connection with new employees it should. Perhaps you are still asking the same questions of references from years ago. Maybe you or one of your staff members have never received training in how to screen resumes or conduct a professional interview.

The good news is we’ve researched, written and published articles on all these Talent Acquisition topics in just the last few months. Here are the articles and the links in our series.
