Have Recruitment Strategies Changed Because of COVID-19?

As social distancing becomes more the norm than a novelty, businesses grow eager to open up again for customers – and their employees.

Demand for most products and services will spike up once lockdowns are relaxed. Smart companies will want to have the right staff already in place to be ready for that surge. And many of those employees will be just as effective working-from-home.

But have recruitment strategies changed much as a result of the Coronavirus?

Denise Leaser, President of GreatBizTools, makers of assessment tools WebAssess and MyInnerGenius, says that they have – forever.
“Most companies know that there will be no ‘return to normal.’ The future of work has changed, and it has changed permanently,” says Leaser.
Leaser says organizations are now thinking of two things:

  • How do I hire effectively, remotely?
  • How do I know who will be effective working-from-home?

A pre-hire assessment tool like WebAssess answers many of these questions by quickly and remotely identifying the right people for the right job.

WebAssess is based on science, helping you to select the candidates with the ideal skills, abilities and personality traits that make them better suited for telecommuting.

“While HR leaders navigate these many new challenges, WebAssess can help by remotely screening candidates in a more effective and unbiased manner than you can in-person in offices,” says Leaser.

WebAssess also allows employers to save time in the whole process, get better results than they would with in-person techniques – and save money.
