Panel discussion: How has recruitment changed during COVID and what’s next

Panel discussion: The new recruitment reality and proactive response from most impacted by COVID-19 and Brexit sectors

While the coronavirus has had a devastating effect on many industries and forced them to downsize their workforce, some other industries are seeing the exact opposite effect. During the lockdown, when restrictions were introduced to stop the spread of the COVID-19, companies who wanted to continue hiring had no choice but to change their recruitment processes literally overnight and adapt to the new social distancing norms. Hear from the panel of experts how their organisations are responding to the ongoing challenges:

  • how COVID-19 will continue to shape the future of the hospitality sector
  • a fall in international recruitment caused by the coronavirus pandemic and Brexit and its impact on NHS workforce
  • hiring to meet surge in online demand as pandemic drives “technological revolution” in retail
