Weekend Roundup: Hiring Managers, Remote Work Style, HR Online Coaching

In today’s Weekend Roundup, we take a look at one of the biggest hiring challenges: finding the right job candidate with the right skills at the right time. In other headlines, much of our workforce continues to work remotely, and many companies are working to determine how to take their employee productivity to the next level. Although the shift to virtual communications was shaky at the beginning, valuable lessons have been learned. Click the headlines below to learn more.

Hiring Managers Need to Work Closely with Schools

The pandemic is continuing to stifle economic activity throughout our country, with employment well below its pre-pandemic levels. The path to recovery is still uncertain. As we continue to navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects on schools and businesses, we face a new world in every American sector and industry. Companies seeking to hire for particular skills need to align with colleges and other learning institutions closely, now more than ever.  The single, biggest hiring challenge that companies large and small face today is finding the right person with the right skills at the right time. Learners need to match their skills and their focus on the roles and positions they are pursuing. Conversely, employers need to understand the skills they need and how to recruit that talent.

How to Identify Your Team’s Remote Work Style

From an abundance of communication to uninterrupted blocks of alone time, we all have certain ways we like to get things done. When everyone is in the office, it can be easy to identify an employee’s style by observing their behavior. With remote working arrangements, however, it can be harder to discern. When you’re a leader, it’s important to identify and understand your team members’ styles, says Ed McQuiston, executive vice president at the content services provider Hyland.

Lessons Learned in Moving Learning and Leadership Coaching Online

The arrival of the coronavirus required human resource leaders to be at their nimble best in rapidly moving a host of in-person processes and practices online. While recruiters faced arguably some of the biggest adjustments in transitioning the interviewing and onboarding of job candidates to virtual environments, their counterparts in the learning and development, employee coaching, and skills certifications spaces faced the equally challenging task of transporting their in-person operations online with little time to prepare.
