Navigating the pandemic recruiting landscape can be a challenge. But the experts at Business Centric Technologies (BCT) can help. Whether you need top-tier recruits or professional assistance with your internal IT integrations, BCT can help. The latest emerging trend in IT recruiting isn’t a trend at all. Instead, it’s a return to fundamentals.

Return to the Fundamentals

What are the IT recruiting fundamentals? Money? Time-off or recruiting bonuses? It’s more fundamental than that. Melissa Thompson, senior vice president of talent acquisition at Nielsen, says fundamentals are “the only way to deal with crazy.” According to the SHRM symposium article, “Thompson redesigned the recruiting process at Nielsen so that everyone involved in it can easily understand where candidates are in the process and how to get from one stage to the next.”

Employee Referrals

Bonuses paid to employees who recommend new hires have been popular tools in the past. But Thompson recommends against increasing in-house headhunter bonuses. What’s the difference? According to Thompson, people are recruiting the people they want to work with. Obversely, how much money would you accept to recruit someone you cannot work with on any level? See the difference?

Recruiting Skills

Expectation setup and management among IT recruiters are becoming worth its weight in gold. According to Jeremy Eskenazi, SHRM-SCP, managing principal of Riviera Advisors Inc., the same article said, “consulting skills for recruiters, such as setting and managing expectations, have become far more valuable than focusing on rigid corporate recruiting processes…The pandemic has forced us to go back to basics.

True mastery comes from successfully executing the fundamentals of any endeavor, primarily IT recruiting. So let BCT help your return to the fundamentals in your IT recruiting activities, so you don’t miss out on the talent you need.
