Rethinking Workforce Planning in an Uncertain World
The COVID-19 pandemic is changing – or has already changed – our collective discernment of uncertainty because of the continued unknown. Almost overnight, companies had to revaluate everything they thought that they knew to find new ways of doing business. Just like sailors navigating their vessels through stormy seas, so too can company figureheads by moving swiftly and proactively rather than simply reacting instinctively.
The biggest thing for companies hiring to keep in mind is to keep the process for every candidate consistent. This will help remove bias from your hiring process. Ultimately what is most important to evaluate is a candidate’s culture fit, their motivations and the performance of a person that translates to a successful hire, so being open minded to ALL those types of candidates is important.
