As we navigate the changes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we must embrace the fact that the employment environment we’re experiencing is filled with unprecedented conditions. Stimulus checks are coming out, unemployment benefits are being extended, FMLA benefits are being expanded, and we’re navigating record swings in unemployment numbers.
As employment industry experts, we have one question for you: How are you planning to deal with the unknown when the world turns back on?
In the weeks to come, you will experience large volumes of unemployed candidates who are eager to get back to work. This surge in candidate applications will create chaos within your HR department as you navigate processing more candidates than you have actual employees within your company. On the contrary, the employment environment will also be experiencing individuals opting to extend their unemployment benefits and enjoy their stimulus checks, instead of returning to work.
The coronavirus crisis will be a reality for many businesses, moving forward. In this new environment, employment expectations and norms will shift drastically as companies navigate ways to establish best practices for bringing segments of the workforce back into the workplace, while establishing new standards for remote work to limit disruption from future outbreaks, and minimizing fear and anxiety experienced by the organization. Throughout the volatility, and as the new normal is established, IMPACT is dedicated to partnering with you to navigate this turbulence and position you for success and stability.
In 2009 and 2010, the market created similar opportunities for strategic rebuilding, but unfortunately,
many companies weren’t prepared. Having successfully navigated this great recession, IMPACT obtained the experience and expertise needed to navigate these obstacles and to turn your challenges into opportunities.
We encourage you to use this time as an opportunity for growth and improvement; to look forward and seize this moment to establish a long-term talent strategy instead of finding yourself without a plan and risking your results being accidental. The current volume of available talent creates an opportunity for companies to strategically re-staff with the best talent for each role, as opposed to competing with your peers for all of the available talent in your market, and subsequently making poor hiring decisions. In a time when the quantity of available talent will be plentiful, IMPACT can strategically increase your odds of identifying quality team members and contributors. For the segment of the population that’s eager to get back to work, we can help you add value by targeting the right people who will be long-term fits for your company.
We’ve got the experience and expertise needed to navigate these obstacles and to turn your challenges into opportunities. Now is the time to make strategic moves and to set your company up for long-term success and growth.
We look forward to partnering with you.
