The Future of Work in a Post Pandemic World

By April 20, 2020June 11th, 2024No Comments

We need to accommodate a new hiring landscape with an agile workforce.

Regardless of the current economic uncertainty, some industries are experiencing a high demand requiring that they adapt and continue to do business.  That means they need the manpower to accommodate growth.

COVID-19 has changed how businesses are recruiting and retaining workers.  Remote is the new normal.  Talent management systems were created for a personal face-to-face experience. HRM systems were designed for transaction scale, not to determine the potential of candidates.  So now what?

Digital Resources

The staffing and talent acquisition industry will be rolling out digital toolkits and AI platforms to support the need of their clients.  Today’s world presents many challenges, workforce enablement is one that can be managed by leveraging technology. From quickly identifying quality candidates and the interview process to onboarding – industry leaders specializing in talent acquisition are gearing up to make sure both employers and talent are covered.


The technology is available to implement the new normal in a hiring process, but what about the actual human element.  Remote workers have always existed, some successfully and some not.  The need for a remote workforce is growing and becoming even more desirable or even necessary.  All businesses need to be prepared.  Staffing and talent industry leaders are the experts in this area and can lead the way for the rest of us.  Their expertise is human capital, and they have been successful because they have fulfilled their responsibility to those who depend on their leadership.

Adaptability is a trait that we should all cultivate – now more than ever.  Whether you’re a business owner, manager or employee, your ability to rise to a challenge can help to mitigate negative effects of change and help you to stay productive, safe and successful.


Bottom Line

Companies that specialize in providing our industries with required manpower are looking at how to develop mechanisms to fulfill a need for a new remote, distributed workforce.  That future includes methods to provide end-to-end visibility personalized to fill the needs of both the employer and the worker.
