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.

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! the Heart of the Ukrainian-Russian ConflictThe story of our US-Ukraine connection started when Kevin met Dave. Days away from quitting his last "real" job as a seafood plant manager, Kevin reconnected with a long-lost friend from high school. Little did he know, this long-lost friend was dating his soon-to-be business partner.

The flow of creativity soon grew into a business partnership that has withstood the test of time. the Move to Salary TransparencyThe salary transparency trend continues. Last year, Colorado passed its Equal Pay Transparency Rules, which required employers to include compensation in job postings, notify employees about promotional opportunities, and record job descriptions and wage records. Soon after, states like Washington, Nevada, Maryland, and Rhode Island followed suit. in a Tight MarketAs a recruiter or employer, you know how much the economy affects your recruitment and retention efforts. You aren't just in competition with companies in your industry, but you are also fighting against inflation, recession, unemployment rates, and so much more.
