Hiring practices already on the way to the grave were shoved into it once the pandemic hit. Tactics that are dated and ineffective are hurting organizations in a big way. Keeping up with new trends helps keep businesses able to recruit the best and the brightest, so competitors don’t swoop down for the kill. 

Here are some essential things to keep a pulse on.

DEI is king

There has never been a more robust demand for fair representation and inclusion in businesses than there is now. What used to be a nice-to-have has evolved into a must—and rightfully so. 


McKinsey’s “Diversity Wins” report indicates that businesses with more diverse executive teams have above-average profitability. The number of job candidates inquiring about DEI commitment in companies is steadily growing. 37% of candidates cited lack of diversity as a significant red flag in their interview process.

Recruiting technology can be of enormous benefit to guarantee you're hiring diversely. Rolebot ensures 33% of candidates surfaced to customers are diverse across every role, with most clients receiving more than 50 percent candidate diversity per role.

Data guides decisions

Understanding and capitalizing on analytics is a must-have skill in recruitment and hiring. 53% percent of HR professionals say they have integrated operations data with HR data in the analysis. A data-driven mindset is vital as real-time analytics and insights guide sourcing decisions in today’s competitive talent market.

Passive candidates are in demand

The days of the talent market being led by active job-seekers are over. Passive candidate sourcing is the new competitive hiring advantage. Many companies are focusing on using sourcing teams to search, identify and reach out to potential candidates. Another option is to equip teams with technologies like Rolebot that source passive candidates and even schedule the first interview.

Defined internal mobility plans

Now is the time to start creating clear career paths for employees, allowing for continuous education, providing stipends for certifications, and even paving paths for team members interested in exploring other departments. Fourteen percent of direct reports listed 'supporting career development and discussing performance' as their manager's single most significant area for improvement.
