Hey Everyone –
As the vaccine continues to roll out, our clients and partners have been discussing how to plan today for a post-Covid tomorrow. While founders are thinking about re-opening offices and new safety procedures, recruiting today for a post-Covid world may not be top of mind.
The states that your employees are located in, your office locations, and your company culture will all impact re-openings, but the greatest wealth of information about expectations for a post-Covid world will come from your employees. Many of our clients have started to send around surveys in order to understand what employees are looking for in a post-Covid world, but it is just as important to have these conversations with candidates during your hiring process.
We recommend asking the following questions during your recruitment process.
- Do you plan to remain remote post-Covid or are you interested and excited to go back to the office?
- Which of our offices would you like to return to? (If you have multiple locations)
- What do you expect from your employer’s remote policies or physical office in a post-Covid world?
As we plan for a post-Covid world together, we are most excited to finally get to spend time with our team, clients, candidates, partners, and the community.

PS. Even during the peak of 2020, we found that only 30% of candidates were seeking remote-only roles. With Q1 2021 hiring in full swing, things are changing – in fact, over 45% of our candidates are now seeking roles that offer remote work only.
