The SingleSprout Shout – Remote work in 2021

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.

Truly,
Natan & David

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.

The SingleSprout Shout Relaunch Q4 2020

Below is an excerpt from our newsletter – The SingleSprout Shout Relaunch Q4 2020.

Hey Everyone! Sorry for the long delay. We’re back with a new edition of the SingleSprout Shout (formerly the SingleSprout Newsletter)!

We think it’s safe to say, the way companies attract top talent has changed. The fancy office perks to attract talent have disappeared (for now), and many have plans never to return to an office again. A recent Gartner survey found that 74% of CFO’s will be allowing certain employees to remain fully remote after the pandemic.

So the question is, what attracts talent in this new remote world? According to Linkedin, 75% of job seekers consider an employer’s brand before even applying for a job, and the #1 obstacle candidates experience when searching for a job is not knowing what it’s like to work at an organization. We advise startups to utilize various tools that are readily available to them to advertise their brand to candidates. Focus on your company’s digital brand, social media, employee testimonials, creating a mission statement, and authentic values. Please reach out to us if you want any extra advice or tips!

We are so grateful for our team, clients, candidates, partners, and the community. We wish everyone a strong end to the year and all the health and strength to conquer 2021.

Natan & David
