Coronavirus Letter RE: Recruiting in Uncertain Times

As we embark into uncharted territory as families, neighborhoods, communities, and businesses, many of us are trying to figure out what comes next.  How do we move forward? With so many things coming to an abrupt halt, like local services, event cancellations, and school closures, it is almost as if we feel like everything should just stop.  

It is important to remember that this too shall pass.  We will eventually regroup and move forward with our daily lives again. Fortunately, we don’t have to start from the beginning, we will likely pick up from where we left off.

Our client engagement teams are being asked by different members of the Human Resources community, “What comes next with respect to recruiting?”  There appears to be a difference of opinion, with some companies enacting a hiring freeze, while others are continuing to execute their hiring plans in order to be ready when we return to business as usual.

For those companies keeping an eye on a future beyond COVID-19, they understand the importance of candidate pipeline development and recognize that recruitment can happen virtually.  For their difficult-to-fill roles, they know there will be more candidates who will answer the phone and are willing to listen to what is available.

Mj3 Partners has been a trusted resource for these progressive companies, as candidate engagement and pipeline development is what we do.  We were formed as a remote enterprise with our employees positioned across the United States.  We are adept at client interaction and candidate dispositioning without the learning curve of how to telecommute.  

Our unique and flexible recruiting structure, which features an hourly-billing model, allows our clients to scale their engagements with us as their recruiting demands dictate.  They activate us when they need us and shut us down when they don’t.  We can facilitate web-hosted interviews and keep candidates warm and interested until things settle down and it’s time to get back to work.

Clearly the most important thing right now is for everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the virus and stay healthy. Looking past this critical stage of our collective well being, one of the byproducts of this pandemic will be a degree of economic recovery, and the process of revitalizing businesses as well as restoring people’s livelihoods. We at MJ3 Partners wish you well as we all navigate through these difficult days. Please know that we are here to assist in maintaining your business continuity, and in rebuilding alongside you once this worldwide crisis has subsided. If there is any way we can help support you now, or in planning for the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
