The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruption across sectors globally. The recruitment and staffing industry has also been impacted by the changes brought about by the pandemic. The resultant hybrid working culture has increased opportunities for candidates multifold.
Recruiting managers need to focus on several aspects, such as technology, data-based decision making and the changing landscape of hiring and recruitment. One of the most important aspects of hiring today is Diversity and Inclusion or D&I hiring. Data reveals that diversity in the workforce directly impacts the financial performance of the organisation. Businesses are realising the importance of D&I and are focusing on hiring employees from minority and underrepresented groups.
An organisation needs to understand the emerging trends in staffing to hire the right talent, enhance the candidate experience and ensure that they have a diverse workforce.
The work-from-home concept has become popular among both employers and employees. In the wake of the pandemic, many organisations are choosing the remote-hybrid model, wherein the employee can work some days from home and report to the office on other days. The hybrid model helps promote diversity because employers are not limited by geographical borders.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to transform how talent acquisition and hiring function.
The impact of AI on hiring:
Today’s work environment is multigenerational. The range of employees extends from baby boomers to Gen Z. The consequence of the multigenerational workforce is that there are varied ideas, views and experiences of different employees. It is a challenge for HR teams to facilitate a collaborative, networked and fluid workplace for diverse employee groups.Emphasis on D&I
D&I is a critical factor for organisations that want to attract and retain the right talent, enhance candidate experience and boost financial performance. Studies have shown that more organisations are looking at avenues to ramp up their D&I initiatives.
Best Practices in D&I Hiring
D&I has emerged as a force to reckon with in the staffing strategies of different organisations. 2020 and 2021 have been years of change in the cultural and sociopolitical factors that will impact the D&I landscape in the future. HR professionals need to understand the trends and adopt the best hiring strategies to promote a D&I work environment in their organisations.
