CEO Blog #6: Business critical resource requirements been put on hold?

Chances are that you are already thinking about the roles that your business will need when things start to go back to normal. Some of these might be vital to your business’s ability to adapt and respond to how the markets have changed during this time. Perhaps it might be an interim strategic role across one or several of your business functions to help implement changes to support your position. Or maybe you already had long-term requirements for certain positions.

You may have already been planning your recruitment process before Covid-19 stopped you in your tracks. Or you may know now that you will require certain resources when we come out of the other side of this.

Whatever your situation is, now isn’t the time to simply put your recruitment for these positions on hold and forget about it, especially if these roles will be essential for getting your business back to the position it was in previously. Recruitment processes can take 6-10 weeks from start to finish and even longer for more senior positions. And if things return to normal quicker than you expected, you could be on the back-foot.

Starting the conversation now, and still keeping on top of your candidate pool will ensure that you can hit the ground running again when you are back to business as usual. It will also mean that your employer brand is already on candidates' radars, which could make it easier to attract them when you are ready to fully commit to your recruitment process.
