The key to getting over your hiring slump is understanding why.
The barriers are more common than you think, but going offshore may turn them into advantages.
Hiring and recruitment are this year’s biggest challenges for HR departments across industries, says Xpert HR’s survey with 563 U.S. companies in September 2020. Top talent are even harder to get on board and retain, with concerns for safety and restrictions, gender gap, and unstable morale plaguing both employers and employees.
But it’s not all driven by the pandemic. A separate report says that in 2019, companies have already begun noticing the impact of the tech bubble on their talent pool. An average of only six in 10 roles were filled in the first half of the year despite having a higher percentage of total hires from two years prior—and if you were in the market for software developers, the hunt has been especially testy.
A comforting thought: Good developers are out there. They might just be farther than where you’re currently looking. Your barriers to hiring may become your leverage against your competitors if you lean on offshore resources.
