How to Recruit Effectively in a Pandemic

December 08, 2020

Has your organisation put recruitment on hold?

According to a recent CIPD report on embedding post-pandemic ways of working, 44% of the organisations surveyed are recruiting as usual. Meanwhile, 19% have either increased, or are planning to increase, their recruitment activity.

A structured approach to recruitment is fundamental to getting the right candidate in the right job at the right time.In a busy environment, however, managers are often so keen to get someone in post that they launch into the search without proper preparation.

Rushing into the hiring process often results in both time and money being wasted. Managers are flooded with inappropriate CVs, spend hours interviewing unsuitable candidates and can end up appointing someone who isn’t a good fit and leaves within a few months.

So what are the key steps you need to take to streamline your recruitment and make sure you end up with the best person for the job?
