Hiring despite Corona - But digital please
The hiring of new staff during the corona pandemic raises many questions: How do job interviews or onboarding procedures work? Hiring-Freeze yes or no? Does the candidate market automatically fill up after the crisis?
Even before the pandemic, video interviews enjoyed growing popularity. In just a few months they have become almost obligatory. Online interviews offer many advantages: Accelerated selection process, less organizational effort, saved travel expenses of the applicant have a positive effect on the ecological footprint as well as on your image.
Even if a hiring freeze is proven to be an effective cost-saving measure, vacancies can have a negative impact on your sales. As a rule of thumb, a vacancy of around 80 days requires a full gross annual salary for the in question. Our vacancy cost calculator will show you exactly how to calculate your vacancy costs.
Although the number of applicants will increase in foreseeable future, the top specialists are still not applying personally, but are being placed. Furthermore, applicants appreciate a large job selection and above all efficient processes, just like our customers. They only find this on digital recruiting platforms. Proof of this is the constant number of new candidate registrations at Taledo - since the outbreak of the corona crisis.
