Recruitment in 2022 is a challenge. Budgets are a little leaner, teams are a little smaller, and talent is a lot harder to reach. The entire talent and acquisition space has changed dramatically in the last few years. The global pandemic dispersed the workforce and changed their expectations about what work itself should look like. A harrowing political climate has placed the focus on diversity and inclusion, and new tools of the trade, including virtual recruitment and digital onboarding, have all played a part.
