The IT staffing and consulting industry is not immune to COVID 19 situation and has been badly hit by this pandemic.
The employers are looking at different hiring patterns that would enable them to rethink their current talent management strategy and look at new ways of hiring and retaining talent.
With social distancing becoming a new normal, in-person meetings have become the thing of the past and the job interviews are being conducted remotely by phone or video conferencing methods.
Due to dwindling interpersonal connect, HR companies are embracing the digital landscape through teleconferencing, webinars and podcast channels to stay digitally connected with their employees during the on-boarding process.
Companies are looking for people who demonstrate the ability to learn quickly and keep pace with the digital transformation for long term sustainability.
In order to be future ready companies need to adapt themselves with cutting edge technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Robotic Process Automation and reassess their workflows for identifying possible automation opportunities.
