How to ensure offers become hires

The benefits of a better onboarding process. Unprecedented change has been made throughout many business processes in the past 18 months. Companies who historically used paper based approaches to onboarding candidates had to go online and found that their existing HR technology, whilst functional, was not engaging to those candidates. With the rise in job vacancies now exceeding the rate it was pre COVID-19 and an extremely low unemployment rate, we explore how to mitigate “buyer’s remorse” from candidates and engage them early on.

Creating Flexible Workforces: Where will work get done in the new reality?

While city centres are opening up again, work has decoupled from the office and workers don’t want to lose the flexibility they have gained in the past year, with most preferring 2-3 days a week in the workplace. “Going to work” has a different meaning today – a growing acceptance of remote work is remaking how organisations are thinking about optimising their workforces, and as technology has untethered talent from location, a ‘work from anywhere’ mindset is creating infinite possibilities for employers to tap into skills beyond borders. During a period of hiring freezes, talent gaps and challenges with contingent hiring, it has been the industries with more flexible models that outperformed others.

Join Jill Bassett, Brand Leader at Talent Solutions, and Jo Taylor, RPO Operations Director at Talent Solutions, as we discuss insights from our latest report into flexible and scalable talent models and the benefits and challenges of remote work, taking a closer look at:

• The state of adoption of hybrid working models in organisations

• Emerging trends in workforce location strategies

• How to effectively untether talent from location
