Recruiting in a Recession: Hard Truths That Talent Acquisition Experts Must Accept

The summer had economists from around the globe embroiled in a debate about a possible recession coming in the next few years (or months). As of October 2022, the U.S. Labor Department data put the current inflation rate at 7.7%. The recent layoffs in the tech industry are just the first of what is soon to be a string of cutbacks by companies looking to save costs. For recruiters, this means freezes in hiring and fewer openings. It will also include the uphill task of finding the best candidates for them from the coming influx of recently laid-off job seekers. Now is probably a good time to brace for tough times in the next few years in the talent acquisition industry. To survive and thrive recruiting in a recession, here are some hard truths you will need to accept.

Reasons HR is Important to an Organization"Nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people." Importances of Organizational Culture and How to Build ItThe world of work has drastically changed in the past few years.

In fact, 77% of applicants say they’d consider a company’s culture before applying for a job. Recruiting: The Key to a Better Talent Acquisition StrategyTalent acquisition is a multi-stage process where candidates undergo various application steps before getting hired. The unfortunate reality is that it is a labor-intense system, with the hiring manager and recruiter often handling all of the work on their own. Ask any one of them, and you will hear about the overabundance of applications and the demanding task of filtering through them to find the best candidates. The quality of talent suffers under the weight of all that work on one person's hands. It's not easy, but as many companies are starting to realize, there is a better way. The future of talent acquisition lies in collaborative recruiting! Long Do Background Checks Take for Pre-EmploymentMany jobs require a background check.

When meeting someone in person, it’s likely you have an elevator speech. These short, practiced introductions can help you share more about who you are, what you do for work and other facts about you. While this works well in a live, in-person context, there are many cases where professionals “meet” someone via written form - like social media, a resume, or published work. In these cases, your bio works as your first impression. So, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to write a short bio. to Conduct a Performance Review (With Examples)In a world where the smallest mistake can cost your business tens of thousands in lost revenue, your talent is key to keeping your edge on the market and driving growth. However, managing a workforce of any size can be a challenge. Employees come with their own particular skill set, ambitions and flaws. So, it can be difficult to uncover their individual drivers. Not to mention the challenges brought on by the hybrid and remote working models where in-person interactions have become few and far between.
