Working from home can put a stopper to your usual recruitment process. Do not let it stand in the way. Now is the time to find new ways to recruit top end-to-end supply chain talent. Video conferencing software is part of the solution.

“It’s important that companies set up regular calls with candidates to keep them engaged and to ensure that they don’t take a role with another company during this period,” suggest Tom Willis, Managing Principal Consultant at DSJ Global. “Some companies are already doing virtual site tours or using interactive photos to demonstrate the environment.”

“The good and bad of a crisis should be used to get away from the long lasting hiring processes towards a lean one with a quick chat—more like a match on Tinder to evaluate if there is a good fit,” says Customer Experience CI, Thorsten H. “Doing this via a quick video or phone interview can be part of a solution. Decisions are always possible to be made later during the probation period as well. Get it started: as speed is the issue—competition never sleeps!”
