Crisis in Talent management- In conversation with Bhavna Juneja


The unpredictable nature of the current crisis caused by the COVID-19 outbreak is demanding new ways of working and solving organizational problems. In this discussion with Bhavna Juneja, Chairman of the Board of Edith Pro, we will address the effect of Covid-19 on talent management and why organizations will need to adapt a skill-based hiring solution.

New skills for the new normal  

Lesser-known practices, for example, workforce planning and design, are starting to gain prominence. Bhavna Juneja also thinks that organizations should prepare employees for the upcoming 'new normal' and pioneers must put resources into reskilling, upskilling and offering nonstop learning opportunities for employees. The process will ensure that employees effectively adjust themselves with digital change and automation in future work.” 

Making the NEW NORMAL work for job seekers/candidates 

Since the organizations are moving at a faster pace, it's essential to pause for a minute to think about what's driving them. What does the"New normal" look like for job seekers, recruiters and employers? Furthermore, what do organizations need to think about as they plan to move ahead?

Amid the crisis, most of the organizations freeze the hiring process. According to a report, an economic freeze due to coronavirus could cost 47 million jobs. Also, the unemployment rate can cross 32%. Most organizations aren't employing currently for development. Instead, organizations are now adopting online platforms to upskill their workforce. According to Bhavna Juneja, organizations should use the current time to assess internal procedures and upskill their employees. Even before the coronavirus crisis, new-age technologies were disrupting several jobs and employees were lacking the skills needed to do them.  

The current pandemic has made the question more urgent. Employees across the globe must figure out how they can adapt to a rapidly changing world, and organizations have to learn how to upskill their workforce to new roles.

Bhanvna Juneja believes that a reliable recruitment management software can truly transform the entire hiring process where NO or very less human intervention is required. Edith Pro has 1000+ skill assessments for various job profiles. Recruiters can browse the tests from our rich database of tests and then invite the candidates by sending a link to take the test.

Virtual is a Certainty When It Comes to Hiring

Virtual recruitment reduces the administrative load on your business. A virtual hiring platform can help you source, shortlist and screen candidates with the right skills without much efforts of human, says Bhavna Juneja. With our online assessment platform, organizations can remove biases from the hiring decisions as everything is managed by virtual machines.
