2020 has been an interesting year so far for the managed care industry. COVID-19 has noticeably changed the way recruiting and hiring is done within the industry and in this post, we aim to highlight a few of those impactful trends.
TREND #1: COMPANIES HAVE ACCELERATED THEIR HIRING PROCESS
COVID-19 has the managed care industry reimagining and rewriting the rules of the hiring process. In fact, 89% of hiring managers say they have completely adjusted their hiring strategy due to the pandemic. With new safety risks associated with meeting potential employees face-to-face, hiring managers have shifted 100% to virtual interviews.
Thanks to the ease of technology like Zoom and GoToMeeting, interviews can be scheduled quickly, significantly moving the entire process along.
TREND #2: CANDIDATES ARE NOT AS WILLING TO MAKE A JOB CHANGE
Recruiting new talent has been challenging as a significant portion of the population will not consider making a change at this time. Many people take comfort in what they know, and in this time of great uncertainty and wide-spread job loss, it’s difficult for candidates to be willing to take risks and leave their stable jobs and remote-work schedules.
For those candidates that are comfortable and willing to make a job change, there are plenty of opportunities as organizations are working harder to get these essential roles filled.
TREND #3: REMOTE WORK MEANS ACCESS TO A WIDER TALENT POOL
While companies have always had the option of hiring candidates from all over, many candidates refuse to relocate, and even when they are willing, relocation packages can be expensive for employers.
Today, companies have the ability to hire from a larger talent pool, and find candidates willing to consider new positions because they don’t need to uproot their family. Candidates are considering working for companies in locations they would never have considered previously.
