During the Covid-19 epidemic, many of us in Germany are grappling with a new reality. While some companies in the financial services sector are slowing down their hiring process, securing the best talent remains a high priority for a number of our clients. This demonstrates they are committed to ensuring that their businesses are affected as little as possible by Covid-19.
Our clients have been particularly keen to hear our advice and views on how best to conduct their interview processes going forward. Given we work with a number of organisations across various locations in Europe, we are in a fortunate position to see many different approaches.
The most notable change we have seen is that current interview processes are having to be altered as the ability to conduct face to face meetings is impacted. Whilst this may not be the ideal, the silver lining is that we as an industry, and society, are in the fortunate position to benefit from the excellent technology available to us via the likes of Skype, Facetime, and Webex to minimise disruption. So this is an opportune moment to use technology to your advantage and get ahead of the competition to secure business-critical talent.
