World order is imperative. There is so much noise and uproar in the marketplace sometimes it is hard to keep your focus. Unemployment will soar in some areas; we are witnessing this daily, but high value skills will always be in short supply.
As the economy gradually re-opens, organisations will be rethinking their recruitment strategy. A clear recruitment strategy that matches the changing needs of a business as they try to navigate the road ahead has never been more critical. Having the right staff on board with the right skills is an imperative now.
Forward thinking companies are re-evaluating their business model including hiring strategies even if they are currently not contemplating to hire immediately. Hiring Managers are now focusing on the next set of workforce skills and capabilities as they plan their way forward. What many companies have learnt from the past months is that people are in fact an organisations greatest asset.
A companies success can be measured by the skill, knowledge, experience and effectiveness of their people. Questions that we are all asking is – What highly skilled people do we have in our organisation? Where are the gaps? Is it a matter of replacing what’s been lost or are new roles and skills required?
Hiring skilled and capable staff is now much more important as employing the best people in the market (permanent or temporary ) gives a huge competitive advantage to any company.
