Fremont, CA: The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated the use of virtual recruitment and onboarding processes. Talent acquisition leaders have safely continued the recruiting process thanks to virtual recruitment platforms such as interview platforms, testing platforms, and assessment platforms. As we look forward to the future of recruitment, we can see the importance of these platforms in the form of hybrid hiring.

The term "hybrid hiring" refers to the combination of virtual and in-person recruitment methods. It combines the best of both worlds to streamline the recruitment process, benefiting both the employer and the potential employees.

Remote operations have highlighted the numerous advantages that virtual hiring provides. Even though in-person interviews are a proven effective method of identifying the right candidate, talent acquisition leaders around the world can modernize the hiring process by leveraging digital capabilities. The future path combines the effectiveness of traditional and the efficiency of digital to create a hybrid recruitment process.

Here are two key strategies that HR leaders can use to successfully integrate a hybrid hiring model into the company's recruitment process:

Remake the Guiding Principles

People do not trust corporations; they trust individuals. Although video conversations aid in the establishment of trust with candidates, face-to-face interactions allow the recruiter to read the candidate's nonverbal cues, which can aid in the development of rapport and the gathering of more information in a shorter period of time. Similarly, the appearance and feel of the office infrastructure have a long-term impact on a candidate. HR leaders will need to focus on understanding the challenges associated with virtual hiring and redefining a new set of interview guiding principles that align with the new normal.

Embrace Inclusivity

Candidates, particularly in a virtual environment, require an inclusive and personalized interview and onboarding experience. By emphasizing open and frequent communication with candidates, people can set the right expectations. HR leaders will need to outline exactly how the interview process will work or how the first week will look and communicate this to candidates well in advance. By encouraging personal interactions and connections with prospective candidates and highlighting best practices through storytelling sessions, we can set the tone for inclusivity.
