In the ever-evolving landscape of technology and business, the demand for exceptional tech talent continues to surge. The aftermath of the global pandemic still influences the realms of technology and business beyond 2023.
The concept of a 'remote work culture' has left an indelible mark on both employees and businesses, prompting a transformation in hiring processes.
Here are five hiring trends to anticipate in 2023 and 2024
1) Remote First Hiring
2) Skills based and Data-driven Hiring
3) Internal Mobility
4) More focus on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
5) Talent Pipeline Automation
Remote First Hiring Trends are Here to Stay
The pandemic necessitated a shift towards 'Remote First Hiring.' In-person hiring strategies became impractical, leading to the adoption of virtual interactions for evaluating candidates. This trend is set to endure.
Remote First Hiring encompasses all aspects of talent acquisition, from sourcing to onboarding, done virtually.
It streamlines the hiring process, saving time and effort for both candidates and recruiters. As candidates increasingly prefer remote hiring, this trend is poised to become the new norm.
Skill-based & Data-driven Hiring Trends
The transition from 'Work Experience-based' to 'Skills-based' hiring was underway before the pandemic but has since accelerated. The discourse around skills-based hiring has gained momentum, revolutionizing recruitment practices.
Thought leaders in recruitment recommend leveraging data to make informed hiring decisions. Tools that evaluate candidate skills in real-time and generate skill-accurate efficiency reports are becoming instrumental.
Data-driven hiring decisions enhance accuracy and reduce recruitment time. Companies that fail to embrace skills-based hiring backed by data risk struggling to source top-quality candidates.
Fostering skill diversity among employees through internal mobility not only enhances retention but also reduces external hiring costs.
Equipping employees with diverse skill sets through internal shuffling promotes upskilling and continuous learning.
Internal mobility benefits both the organization and its employees, making progress and growth a two-way street.
More focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (D,E and I)
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are no longer just buzzwords; they are actively integrated into business policies. Eliminating workplace bias is the first step toward a more inclusive society.
A D,E, and I policy in the workplace creates a safe environment that nurtures potential talent and fosters their growth.
As awareness of equal opportunities grows, people naturally align themselves with the normalization of D,E, and I.
This trend expands the spectrum of achievements, driving meaningful innovations. D,E, and I should not merely be a hiring trend but an integral part of the recruitment process.
Talent Pipeline Automation
Tech companies are actively strategizing to acquire passive talent and build talent pipelines. The "great resignation" of 2021-22 highlighted the importance of securing potential talent. Companies are turning to talent pipeline automation to identify and engage potential talent for future hires.
Automation streamlines the process, saving time and effort, and enhancing overall productivity. Automating tech hiring through innovative platforms and tools accelerates the recruitment process and improves accuracy.
