Many Companies Are Not Prepared For “The Roaring Twenties” Post Pandemic Hiring Surge



You Aren't Ready

Let me invite you into the “Paul DeBettignies Time Machine” and let’s go back to January 6th, 2020.

For most of us on this ride, COVID 19 was not known of. Here is what was:

  • GDP while slowing from recent years was estimated to be 1.9%. Still a very busy year for those hiring.

  • “War for Talent” and “Skills Shortage” and “Talent Shortage” were common phrases.

  • Many (most) companies were having between a slight and hard time hiring at the pace they wanted to. Hiring, yes. Fast, not so much.

  • Most recruiting teams were understaffed, underbudgeted and lacking proper tools.

Then the “shut down” came.

11 Reasons Why During A Pandemic It Is Difficult To Hire Hourly And Salaried Workers



Help Wanted, We're Hiring

This topic is on the news, in client calls and going on in the C Suite. Let me give you the perspective I have been sharing. You may agree and/or disagree with some of this and I gladly hear your take on this => paul@mnheadhunter.com

Rather than start with the list I am going to start with what would normally be the end, the conclusions. Mostly because I think we generally understand why it may be difficult to hire right now.

Conclusions and some philosophy:

- Some jobs are awful to do let alone at the wage that is paid for doing it.

  • This is, well… obvious.

- Some companies/CEO’s/Hiring Managers/departments/subsidiaries are awful to work for.

  • Just because you have open jobs and are having a hard time filling them does not mean it is a worker issue. It could be that you suck to work for.

- In many jobs, industries and regions there was a worker shortage pre COVID 19.

The Great “Break Up” Of 2021: Employers And Employees



I Quit

As we ended 2020, I was getting a much higher than normal amount of inquiries from people asking about what the expected job/hiring market was going to be like in 2021. At that time, I didn’t know. No one really had a good answer. We had not yet had a transfer of power in Washington and the vaccine rollout was uncertain.

As January started and through the month the inquiries increased substantially. These were people in Tech, Marketing, HR, Sales and Manufacturing and all levels of experience.

It had me thinking that this was not a blip on the screen but a significant trend.

I started asking my Recruiter friends (corporate, search and consulting) who were tapped into their part of the community if they were hearing the same things.

They were.

Minnesota Recruiters In Demand - Spring 2021



Minnesota Recruiters

Yes… it has been eight months since I last did an update like this. At any point that I would written one in Fall or Winter would have been outdated within a few weeks. Things changed (for better and worse) that fast.

Here is what I know now… assuming:

  • The “worst” of the pandemic is behind us

  • The economy is going to rebound as predicted

  • Any new increase in health concerns is going to be contained, taken care of

Things are going to get, already are… very crazy.

You just might not be feeling it yet.

But I assure you it is already happening.
