As the majority of businesses move towards home working this week following the latest government advice on the coronavirus, we are being asked by clients and candidates for guidance on how this will impact on recruitment.
No matter what industry or sector you operate in, all organisations are currently facing the same challenge - seeking to achieve the right balance that ensures all employees are safe and not exposed to unnecessary risks whilst at the same time keeping the wheels turning.
Thankfully, recruitment is something that can continue with minimal disruption. Using technology and all available resources, we can (and will) continue to “meet”, communicate, advise and support our clients and candidates. As far as we are concerned, all ongoing and future recruitment projects can and should continue.
Today I have spent time scheduling a number of skype interviews and anticipate this to be the preferred method of interviewing going forward. In light of this please download below the updated guidance on preparing for a telephone or video interview which we hope you will find useful.
We all have a responsibility and role to play in ensuring that things do move forward and so that we can make it through this crisis with as minimal impact as possible. At the SR Group we will be doing all we can to support and assist our clients and candidates through this challenging time.
Going forward perhaps out of a negative situation we will see the tide turn in a positive way regarding the need for the traditional face to face interviews as organisations embrace the benefits that technology led interviews can add.
