Staffing Challenges Through COVID-19

As part of Chandler Macleod Group, Peoplebank has joined in a global partnership with our international sister company Staffmark Group and our owners RGF Staffing to create and release a research paper which deep dives into our clients staffing challenges through COVID-19, including what has required change and what remains the same. 

Firstly, we take a brief look at the economic situation due to the COVID-19 impact. The report then discusses quality insights around the main challenges that businesses faced (or are still facing) and what concerns could be addressed by staffing companies like ourselves. Throughout the pandemic we have been able to adapt our services to support the needs of the businesses we work with, as you will see mentioned in this paper.

“Part of the fluctuation in staffing and recruitment is because the pandemic has affected job roles differently. In the short term, employers expect to see transportation and information technology roles have the highest net increase, while sales, management, and accounting roles are expected to see the highest net decline.”

The main topics you will learn about include:

  • The need to create an agile hiring process
  • What employers’ value most about staffing services
  • Contactless recruitment
  • The focus on quality and speed of hiring being very important to businesses

Whilst the strength of many industries has been tested during this pandemic, the way in which we hire has transformed and grown, leading to a prosperous future for the staffing market and the organisations we work with.

The adaptions that have been implemented, through technology and reinvigoration of services, have been a silver lining for the staffing market during stressful times of COVID-19. Our staffing businesses hope to keep up with the transitions that have been made and continue to innovate and find flexible solutions that will be effective during both excellent and challenging economic conditions.
