In life, few things can induce anxiety like the unknown. However, that is exactly what every person, company and team was faced with head-on throughout the pandemic.
Data from the 2020 Labour Force Survey showed a large increase in the unemployment rate throughout the year, while the employment rate continued to fall. The number of redundancies reached a record high in August to October 2020.
The sudden and drastic change in the economy and talent landscape, along with the switch to a fully remote work culture for many — has employers working overtime to make crucial decisions that impact the business's bottom line.
However, not all employers are in the same boat. While some industries are being forced to reduce employees across the board, others have increased hiring in certain areas to keep up with demand.
One of the larger business advantages of the current ‘remote’ shift, however, lies in its capacity to completely reshape the talent market and open up access to a more diversified global talent pool for business booths big and small.
When it comes to attracting talent, remote positions remove the geographic boundaries from the available talent pool. Businesses no longer need to limit their recruiting efforts to candidates located within ‘reasonable’ distance (whatever that may be) of their offices or headquarters.
As a result, companies can connect and engage with potential new hires based on their qualifications and suitability for roles, regardless of where they live, work or play. This not only allows companies to more effectively pursue talent, but can also help facilitate the creation of a more diverse workforce. It’s a win-win.
