Work has shifted dramatically since the start of the pandemic and has likely changed forever. It is crucial that CEOs, Managers, HR departments and Recruiters stay on top of the trends and the ever-evolving state of what it’s like to be in the job force right now.

HRreview presents the view of HR Experts, Bear Claw ATS, on the top 5 trends in recruitment and what to look for in the hiring process.


Offer Flexibility

Flexibility offers the opportunity for a real work-life balance. This is of the utmost importance to employees more so now than ever. Showing employees that companies can be accommodating on an individual basis regardless of scale, within reason, is crucial.


Avoid the Bait and Switch

Many employers are giving inaccurate descriptions to attract more candidates out of desperation. Make sure as a candidate you are asking the right questions at the beginning of the interview process. As a business, making false promises in the beginning will lead to inevitable employee dissatisfaction in the end.


Keep an Organized System

Often when companies are hiring rapid fire, some candidates can get lost in the mix and slip through the cracks. Implementing a system of scheduled interviews, follow-ups and other tasks is crucial. Systems like Bear Claw can do all of this for you and keep recruiters on track.


Think Outside of The Box When Looking for Candidates

Companies can leverage social media, such as Instagram and TikTok to engage its millions of Generation Z users who are just entering the workforce and will eventually make up the largest portion.


Implement Modern Technology

Cutting edge technology, like Bear Claw ATS, is not only important, but it is necessary for recruiters and employers to maximize their efforts. Technology allows Recruiters to focus on the most important part of placement, engaging and cultivating.
