Christmas and the New Year are quickly approaching, which means it’s time to plan for 2023. The hiring trends for 2023 should be kept in mind if you’re looking to expand your team in order to remain ahead of the competition. Here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative – Australia’s affordable recruitment agency:
Working remotely is here to stay; in fact, according to UpWork, 25% of all jobs professional workers will work remotely by the end of 2023. Increased productivity and flexibility are some of the benefits when it comes from working from home. Which has increased job satisfaction and improved employee retention rates. Hybrid work options are also here to stay and may well be a trend we will continue to see in 2023, with 83% of workers preferring hybrid work environments.
Values & Branding
Companies with strong core values are more likely to attract top talent. However, many companies’ values are vague, generic or not clear. Defining your values at the beginning of the recruitment process helps you build relationships with candidates. And attract workers who are more likely to stay. This is an important trend to stay on top of heading into the new year.
Looking Beyond Experience
As we know, it is a competitive candidate market out there that is predicted to continue into the new year. There is a lot of demand but not enough supply. So don’t limit your search to candidates with similar work histories. Use scenario-based questions to determine whether they can do what’s needed. Candidates could have transferrable skill sets that, with a little training, could make them the perfect fit for your business. Just because they haven’t done the exact role before doesn’t mean they won’t be a good fit. You can always train those with an excellent work ethic and attitude.
