Podcast: Recruiting During a Global Pandemic - How Employers Must Adapt

XpertHR, 18th August 2020

Human resources is at a tipping point and must take a fresh look at how it approaches job candidates and employees. That's according to Ira Wolfe, author of "Recruiting in the Age of Googlization: When the Shift Hits Your Plan," who joins XpertHR Legal Editor David Weisenfeld to discuss recruiting challenges during this time of uncertainty. Wolfe is the president of Success Performance Solutions and often presents at SHRM conferences.

Wolfe recommends using technology to automate processes whenever possible so employers can better handle the influx of resumes that they have been receiving since COVID-19 hit. He also calls the current situation "a gold mine and huge opportunity" for forward-thinking employers as they realize that, for many jobs, new hires do not need to be physically on-site.
