If I had to pick one trend that accelerated dramatically during COVID-19, it would be remote work and, subsequently, remote hiring.
The pandemic has challenged the stigma associated with remote work and broken barriers even with the most conservative C-suite executives.
And it hasn’t slowed down. According to Labour Force Survey data released by Statistics Canada, working from home continues to increase,
with October numbers growing by 150,000.
With remote work, remote hiring has become its natural companion.
Overcoming the adversity of COVID-19
The pandemic has given us a glimpse into the future.
It’s driven us to rethink old ways of doing business and to recognize that it’s time to adapt modern approaches to hiring,
onboarding and employing our most treasured assets.
