As an employer, you’re well aware that trying to predict hiring trends over the past couple years has been challenging to say the least. But given what we know of the rapidly evolving job market, the needs of the industry, and the asks of talented professionals, there are several trends that we are confident will continue to shape the hiring landscape.
Here are some trends that we think will continue or become more prominent in the coming year.
Proactive recruiting is an approach to hiring that involves actively seeking out and engaging with potential job candidates, rather than simply waiting for candidates to apply. This can involve a range of activities, such as identifying potential job candidates through networking and outreach, such as attending job fairs, participating in professional organizations, or reaching out to potential candidates directly. It can also include using recruiting software and other tools to identify and target potential job candidates based on their skills, experience, and other factors.
A great strategy for proactive recruitment involves developing relationships with potential job candidates and providing them with information about the company and its opportunities, in order to build interest and engagement even before a job opening exists. Then, by providing ongoing support and guidance to potential job candidates throughout the hiring process, even helping them prepare for interviews and providing feedback on their performance, creates a strong talent pipeline that gets people in role quickly and efficiently.
An Increase in Remote or Flex Work
The COVID-19 pandemic has led many companies to shift to remote work, and this trend is likely to continue in the coming year. This may lead to an increase in job opportunities for remote workers, as well as an increased emphasis on skills and experience related to working remotely.
Similarly, Many workers are looking for greater flexibility in their work arrangements, and this trend is likely to continue in 2023. This may lead to an increase in job opportunities with flexible hours and the ability to work remotely.
A Focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. This trend is likely to continue in 2023, with companies placing a greater emphasis on hiring and promoting a diverse workforce.
The use of artificial intelligence and automation in the hiring process
Many companies are using AI and automation to streamline their hiring processes, and this trend is likely to continue in the coming year. This may lead to changes in the way job seekers apply for and are considered for jobs, as well as an increased emphasis on skills and experience related to AI and automation.
Overall, these trends suggest that a greater emphasis on diversity, remote work, and the use of technology in the hiring process may characterize the job market in 2023.
