The New Trend in 2022 is that those workers that were sent home to work during Covid-19 do not want to return to the workplace, some wish a hybrid model of a few days at office and a few days at home. Some say its more productive for them to get their work done without interruptions and some want that interactions with co workers.
They can get the kids to school, do their morning work, put the laundry in, get dinner out from the freeze and carry on with their afternoon uninterrupted.
This has become the new norm. So when you are looking to fill a position, it now takes more time to identify a candidate because why you say?
Because the workers that went home are loving it and are not applying to other positions because of the office environment they used to be in or the management. They are able to do their job and well.
So, the moral of the story is: It Now Takes Time to Identify those that are looking and taking upwards of 2 – 3 months instead of 2 – 3 weeks, which is making some clients angry as they too are having difficulty in all placements for their companies and need time to digest this new norm.
So be patient with your recruiters as they are doing the best for you as they did in the past, however, its just taking longer to fill most positions. But like Excel Personnel we guarantee to fill the position, its just taking longer than in the past to fill even with our 64,490 data base and phone calls, it still takes time.
