Executive recruiters Denver, CO? In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, experts expect nearly 50 million new candidates to flood the market. For the first time in years, we’re seeing a shift from a so-called “candidate’s market” to an “employer’s market,” with a greater number of potential employees than there are open jobs. Many organizations and hiring managers are taking this time to rest on their laurels, assuming that candidates will come to them.
Since February, senior executives have increasingly been asking how the pandemic, and now the presumed recession, will affect hiring in 2020. The answer is that it will vary. In any time of economic distress, not every industry slows down. While some companies lay off people, others hire them. As every prior downturn has shown, there is opportunity in chaos, and not just the unethical sort. Of course, hiring, productivity, and retention will likely be more challenging in this time of pandemic and recession. At least for now, there’s a new normal. But even if hiring decreases overall, at most companies there will be pockets of ethical opportunity and business continuity that warrant hiring at certain levels. Again, there is ethical opportunity in chaos. It’s imperative to look for potential leaders as well as rank-and-file employees who have shown they can survive and thrive in uncertain times, and that holds true for current leaders as well. Hiring practices have to adjust accordingly.
