The Future of Hiring – Top Trends to Expect in 2023

As a top-rated virtual hiring event platform, we hear the challenges from the organizations and employers that host events on our platform every day.  


The future of hiring is expected to continue evolving and becoming increasingly digital and data-driven.  Here are some of the trends shaping the future of hiring:

Virtual and remote hiring – The trend of remote work will likely increase the demand for virtual hiring processes, including virtual interviews and assessments. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) – AI will play a larger role in the hiring process, from resume screening to candidate matching and predictive analytics.

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) – Companies will continue to prioritize DEI in their hiring processes, including using technology to address bias in recruitment and increasing outreach to diverse candidate pools.

Employee experience – The focus will shift from traditional HR practices to creating a positive employee experience, from the hiring process to onboarding and beyond.

Talent communities – Companies will create and engage with talent communities to build relationships with potential candidates, improving their ability to attract and retain top talent. 

Overall, the future of hiring will likely prioritize technology, flexibility and candidate experience in order to attract and retain top talent in a highly competitive job market. 

Let’s drill down to some of the top trends we see as 2023 kicks off.

Smart Hiring and Retention Challenges –  The ‘Great Resignation’ spurred on by Covid might be behind us, but workers continue to leave the workforce in larger than expected numbers.  October of 2022 saw 4 million Americans quit their jobs, which left 10.3 million open positions.  The gap between available jobs and available workers continues to grow, meaning retention is the best strategy to avoid the competition for new hires. 

Limiting turnover has become more important than ever.  The days of ‘letting an employee go’ because so many others were ready to fill that role are gone.  Creating a workplace culture that builds trust and helps employees grow in their careers has always been a smart strategy, but now it has become a necessity.

No matter how much you limit turnover, adding new employees will always be part of a growing company’s needs.  Smart hiring includes tactics that are non-traditional like hosting virtual career fairs, and virtual hiring events. These events open your organization to anyone who is interested, and not limit yourself to a pool of candidates in your area.   Virtual hiring events became mainstream during the pandemic and now, nearly 80% of recruiters prefer virtual to in-person.  The same can be said for busy job candidates who most likely have a full-time job but are weighing their options and can more-readily attend a virtual event.  Make sure you have a virtual hiring event platform as part of your hiring strategy to attract and hire the best talent possible.

The Need for Flexibility – another Covid influenced dynamic is the new remote workforce.  Employers toyed with the idea of letting employees ‘work from home’, but it never took hold.  Post pandemic, it remains a very common and viable option as many workplaces have roles that are as productive and effective from home as in office.

The latest report shows that 48% of the workforce will continue to work remotely or in a hybrid fashion.  Being able to offer this type of work will be a great competitive advantage over the 52% of the workforce that requires workers to be in the office.  A great strategy is to support a remote or hybrid workplace now, so that you can attract the best available talent and be prepared in the event of another disruption.

Skill Gaps and Shortage of Talent – as difficult as finding the right hire already is, shortages in skills and talent are increasing the challenges.  Skills like construction and tech are having an extremely difficult time finding qualified candidates, and the pipeline is not filling up anytime soon.

The answer is internal training and dedicating resources for employee development and growth.  The days of finding skilled and experienced workers are few and far between.  Your best strategy is to hire based on the character traits and work ethic you are looking for and build on the employees skills by training them for your organization.  Offering this type of opportunity will create another strong competitive advantage over employers that do not offer this.

This ‘growth-mindset’ replaces the days of a person working in the same department their entire lives.  Give employees opportunities to learn, mentor, be mentored and apply their skills in other positions.  You may take an average employee and turn them into a star, simply by giving them the support to grow and find their best fit in the organization.

Employee Well-Being – along the lines of creating a great work culture is focusing on the well-being of employees.  The term ‘Quiet-Quitting’ relates directly to the pervasive attitude workers have that they are only going to give so much to their jobs.  This can be a larger problem in workplaces that don’t provide genuine support for their employee’s well-being. 

Make sure your employees know that you appreciate their effort and are vested in their personal well-being.  Flexible work schedules, childcare support, mental health support, physical and emotional well-being programs are all part of the mix.  The more you can invest in the employee’s well-being, the better they will feel about themselves, the company and the more likely they will want to stay with your company.  

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion or DEI – is not a trend, it is a way of the workforce that is here to stay, and rightly so.  Companies can no longer avoid the topic or force employees to adapt to a ‘my way or the highway’ mentality.  From the smallest companies to the largest corporations, those that embrace individuality will attract and hire the best available talent, since everyone wants to be accepted and appreciated.

This can’t be done without a concerted effort, taking time every day to communicate the company’s policy, to encourage team building events, to celebrate the diversity that exists within your organization.  If your attempts are seen as superficial, it will do more damage than good.  Make sure you have a sincere and consistent message, and that your employees know your company is there for them.

Greater use of Virtual, AI and Automation – technology is always evolving, and another product of the pandemic is how quickly employers and employees had to adjust and adapt to new technology.   Software like Zoom and Microsoft Teams is now an everyday event, and the best companies continue to evolve and add virtual platforms that improve communication, efficiency, productivity and workflows.

When it comes to hiring, virtual events have proven to be much more efficient and, in many ways, more effective than in-person events.  The new trend is moving towards hybrid events, that offer in-person and virtual access.  Clearly the employers that embrace and invest in the best technology and automation will have the best chance for success.  A virtual hiring event platform like Premier Virtual completely automates the follow-up process to be able to track hires from your events.  It’s innovation like this that separates the best from the rest and position your company to attract the best talent.

Holistic Digital Transformation – taking the last point one step further, building profiles of the ideal customer, worker, workflow and expected results will create a very clear picture of what they company stands for, and how they will deliver that to their customers.  A holistic approach will never lead to a fixed rigid business model, but rather one that can adapt to change, and creates value through different kinds of partnerships.

By approaching your business in this way, your employees have a greater sense of what is expected of them, and that makes it easier to define the kind of employees you need to keep that going.  When a company can support this transformation with digital tools, data and supporting infrastructure, the vision and mission will be pervasive, and the culture will attract and retain the best talent.

Transforming HR through Tech and Data – as we’ve touched on through AI and Virtual, HR needs to come out of the stone age and embrace today’s technology.  There are many excellent platforms that help in every phase of hiring, and many employers continue to resist and prefer to do things’ the old way’ or sticking with the status-quo.

When it comes to tech, companies are turning to cloud computing, virtual platforms, collaboration technologies, and digitization to improve HR operations and the employee experience, according to the Society for Human Resource Management.  Don’t wait until the right time because it will cost you another competent new hire. The time to upgrade your technology is now, at all costs!

The challenges in hiring will remain extremely high in 2023 due mostly to the labor shortage, but if you can work on getting ahead of these 8 trends, you will create a competitive advantage that can be the difference between meeting your staffing challenges, or no



Hiring has Undergone a Fundamental Shift

In fact, there has been more than one major shift in hiring in the past few years.

  1. The shift from in-person to virtual hiring

First, the shift from in-person to virtual that was accelerated by the pandemic is here to stay.  It was already happening before the pandemic, but at that time, it was more of a ‘nice to have’ option, that quickly became a ‘must-have’ option due to social distancing.

What we found out is that virtual hiring is more efficient, more effective and with the right platform, extremely easy to execute.  With Premier Virtual, the leading virtual hiring event platform, you can create your account, set up your event, and launch it all in a matter of minutes. Ideally, you want time to promote a virtual hiring event, but using the platform is not dependent only on hiring events.

An all-in-one virtual hiring platform like Premier Virtual is always on, and always open for your potential job candidates.  You can leverage the platform 24/7 by creating virtual job boards, and virtual hiring rooms that never close.  This gives your team, and your applicants the flexibility to research your company, apply and meet your recruiters. 

With the built-in two-way scheduler, candidates can schedule time on a recruiter’s calendar, and recruiters can also request an interview with candidates they feel are a good match.  Because the platform allows recruiters to search resumes, they can quickly find the talent they’re looking for. Recruiters can also view the video interviews that candidates can record as part of their profile to get a much better feel for the person, that you can’t get from reading a resume.

Virtual hiring has also led to virtual work which has exploded since the pandemic.  Even with many companies insisting workers return to the office, the need and demand for virtual work remains.  We project that employers who embrace this, and lead with this, will be much better positions to find and retain the top talent that prefer this style of work, and flexibility it offers.

We see national hiring events, that post positions with the description, ‘Anywhere, USA’ openings, or they group openings by time zones instead of specific office locations.  Again, the companies that are embracing this approach and making remote part of their culture, are winning the talent wars.

  • This shift to proactive hiring

Hiring remains one of the most difficult things companies have to do in order to remain competitive.  The passive job market, although much larger than the active job market is often overlooked.  Most companies are marketing themselves only to active job seekers, but every worker is a potential employee, if they know about your company and what you have to offer.

Strategies to consider that will keep your company in the hearts and minds of potential future employees include everything from being active in your community by supporting events and non-profits to creating a newsletter, blog or insightful podcasts.

If you are a tech company, and host mixers or meet-ups that are open to the public, you can attract passive job seekers that find value in your network.  You may even create an in-formal networking group that helps its members connect and find meaningful work, even if it’s not at your company.  The value you offer will give your company a competitive edge when it does have a position that meets that candidate’s skills.

Here again, virtual is a powerful tool since you can host virtual events and meet potential candidates.  Creating a pipeline of talent is crucial to stay ahead of the labor crunch.  A recent report shows hiring has slowed to 41 days on average, a number that was only 9 days in 2009.  The cost to hire is also averaging at around $4,425, according to SHRM and If you want to be able to hire the best talent in the least amount of time, a professional pipeline is crucial.

We see that companies using virtual hiring events reducing time to hire to that 9–10-day period, which also comes with a dramatically reduced cost to hire, a win-win! 

Have you made the shift?

Is your company still hiring in-person, only looking to fill jobs at the office, and not building a qualified pipeline of potential candidates?

If so, we can help you transition and leverage the tools available to make your company relevant in the job force and a place that is sought out, instead of the other way around.  Schedule a free demo today to see how the Premier Virtual, all-in-one recruitment platform can position your company for hiring success.

5 Reasons Virtual Hiring Platforms are Transforming Talent Acquisition

Job Boards do not Deliver the Same Results

Ask any hiring manager or recruiter and they’ll all say, you no longer get the same results when you post an ad on Indeed or Zip Recruiter.  There are many factors including the great resignation and the shift in the workforce, but it goes beyond that.  Many job seekers and employers will use those platforms, but they don’t expect much in return.  It seems like a ‘necessary evil’ for both parties, but success stories are few and far between.  It’s hard to pinpoint the lack of success from job boards, but we see an overall lack of engagement and follow-through.  Either the ATS systems are kicking too many qualified candidates out, or job seekers are not taking the time to customize a resume and cover letter for each application they send in. Whatever the reason, it’s clear the entire hiring landscape has undergone a fundamental shift, away from job boards and towards virtual hiring events, and virtual hiring rooms.  These virtual job fairs allow job seekers to meet directly with hiring managers and recruiters, and get real time feedback resulting in faster hires.

Ability to Host Hybrid Events (in-person and online)

As the fundamental shift to virtual hiring events continues to accelerate, we also see the frequency of hybrid events increasing as well.  Why wouldn’t you want to be able to host an in-person hiring event, and collect all the data electronically at the same time.  That’s what a hybrid event lets you do.  Your attendees scan a QR code, and then upload their resume for easy access and follow-up.  No more handing out cards and collecting resumes that you have to bring back to your office and scan, instead everything is handled electronically.  This means you can print reports at the office with all the stats of the event, how many attended, interviewed, applied and more.  Turning in-person events into a wealth of data is now as easy as adding a virtual hiring platform to your event.

24/7 Virtual Hiring Room

The best platforms now offer virtual hiring rooms for 24/7 hiring access.  Why wait for a virtual hiring event when you can meet with qualified candidates any time of the day.  No need to meet in person, wasting time traveling and incurring additional expenses.  Virtual platforms have built in interview schedulers, that allow recruiters to hop into the virtual hiring room whenever it’s most convenient for the job seeker, increasing efficiency and effectiveness. 

All-In-One Virtual Recruitment Suite

The most sophisticated of virtual hiring platforms can be used as your complete recruitment tool.  They now can host events, interview days, workshops, open houses, training, and more.  Gone are the days of using them just for hosting hiring events.  Add to it the integration with ATS systems, using an Open API, and all the data is easily transferred and stored in your tracking programs for easy access and follow up.

Analytics and Reporting

When you add a virtual platform you can access a great deal of data that was not previously available.  The Premier Virtual platform collects over 58 different data points, resulting in detailed reports containing hyper-detailed information of the entire event, from the day it’s set up, through the follow-up period after the event. (see chart). The reports and easy to access dashboard and integration with ATS is what most users of virtual hiring platforms state as the most powerful feature.  It allows successful hiring managers to see everything at a glance, and the ability to drill down to find information that can help with marketing future events, that is so crucial to find the best possible candidate for your company.

Recruiting Strategies for Sourcing Candidates on a Global Scale

The global labor force provides employers with a number of benefits such as access to a larger candidate audience and options for hiring remote employees at competitive wages.  However, it isn’t without its challenges.  For instance, today that employers target has changed dramatically.  The world is your platform and tapping into the talent of the global workforce becomes important.

So, it stands to reason that recruitment strategies must be improved as well.  There are 3 ways to ensure that you source the right candidates from the right talent pool:

  • Be sure you target the right talent pool – the old “throw something against the wall until it sticks” mentality is not going to work when it comes to recruiting the best talent.  Acquiring the best talent requires finding the right audience or talent pool.  It may be the job boards for some employers while others might use social media platforms.  If you do use social media, make sure that you’ve optimized your recruitment strategy based on your preferred target audience.
  • Sell candidates on your company’s mission and vision – unless you have the time to waste trying to outbid other companies in wage warfare, the best plan of attack is selling your company’s mission and vision.  Whenever you interview a candidate, be sure to promote your corporate dream in hopes of finding the right one for the job.  Employer branding is a very effective recruitment tool and will help you communicate your company mission and vision to the candidates you attract, especially if they’re a good fit for your organization. Using our platform allows employers to host a ‘meet and greet’, or workshop to allow job seekers to get to know your organization more intimately before they apply for the position.
  • The best strategy for sourcing job candidates is to involve a team in the hiring process – although an HR individual will make the final hiring decision, teams can help trimming the number of candidates down to the top 3, 4, or 5 individuals.  Remember, each of those team members took the same journey before you hired them.  Thus, they will likely find talented candidates for your company in the process. Offering your team virtual access to pre-screen candidates through the platform is another efficient advantage that reduces time and cost to hire.

These candidates could be contacts they met at the same previous job or fellow employees from that job.  They might even have been college roommates at one time.  The key is to create an environment where you can encourage team members to make hiring recommendations as well as one that pays attention to employee referrals.  In so doing, you’ll help the team grow and increase its unity.

If you’re tired of jumping from one virtual recruitment platform to another and are looking for a more cost-effective, efficient means for targeting the best talent, Premier Virtual has the software you’re searching for. Call us today at (561) 717-9717.

How Does Video Conferencing Differ from a Virtual Event Platform?

As businesses and corporations in ever-increasing numbers turn towards utilizing online meetings and virtual hiring events to save effort, money, and time, it may be difficult to understand how certain events and platform functionality differ.  This is especially true when you need to deliver a great hiring event experience to your target audience.

What is Video Conferencing?

Video conferencing is a straightforward meeting format that offers video participation for those in the meeting.  It’s similar to a video call that you can make on your smartphone, but it includes other features such as recording and transcription capabilities.  Video conferencing tools typically refer to such elements as:

  • permissions and settings designed to limit participation as well as who can be heard
  • screen sharing
  • virtual whiteboards

This works effectively for remote office meetings and smaller conferences.  However, when it comes to hosting or sponsoring a virtual event such as a conference, online class, or webinar (web seminar) you’ll need to invest in a virtual event platform.

What is a Virtual Event Platform?

Virtual event platforms are online spaces where conferences, hiring events, and other types of conferences can be held or hosted.  Granted, there are dozens of virtual event platforms available today.  However, it’s important to understand that no two are alike.  Nor is every platform suited for every type of event.  This is because some of them lack basic functionality such as break-out rooms for large-scale events.

Virtual event platforms are designed to provide digital events that your target audience would expect in an in-person trade show.  If you’ve been searching for a way to deliver a memorable industry event without spending the effort, money, and time involved with an in-person event, find a virtual platform that best facilitates your needs.  You’ll want one that is secure and readily accessible for you and your attendees. That is why it is important to have the right platform.

The Key Differences

If you aren’t sure when you should utilize virtual event platforms, here are the 5 most important differences between them and video conferencing:

  • video conferencing is integrated into virtual event platforms and enables you to use the integrated tools you specifically need
  • virtual event platforms are capable of handling the most complex agendas
  • virtual event platforms are in-person meeting simulations
  • virtual event platforms utilize automation and registration to help you understand who is attending your event
  • virtual event platforms were designed to accommodate larger audiences

Tips For Event Hosts On Engaging Your Virtual Audience

There’s no getting around the fact that you need to create an engaging environment, especially if you’re hosting a virtual hiring event or job fair. Job candidates will be more engaged with the right content to access, and your employers will have a more successful event. There are certain things you can do to create this type of environment.

Have Interactive Events

You need to interact with your guests if you want your event to be successful. It doesn’t matter which type of event it is. You can do this by:

  • Have live polls and feedback – you can allow attendees to give live feedback regarding the overall nature and success of your virtual events. Do this in the form of live polls and feedback sessions.
  • Attend the live Q&A sessions that your presenters host – the questions and answers to them will give you valuable feedback as to what you can be doing better in the future. The Q& A session should revolve around a pre-defined topic. Be sure to inform attendees ahead of time for better results.
  • Host interactive discussion panels – make your events more engaging by allowing attendees to interact with each other in virtual discussion panels. Make sure that they’re separate from the panels that your presenters hold. It may not be a bad idea to ask the attendees the topics they want to discuss and make them the focus of your discussion panels.

Be Sure To Recreate The Hallway Track

Hallways in real events make for some interesting conversations. Make sure that your virtual events have these as well. You’ll be sure to create an interesting virtual event that everyone will want to participate in if you do this. Hosts need to make sure to offer informal networking opportunities as well.

Informal networking: Make sure that employees have the chance to connect with each other informally during your events. It can lead to great opportunities and conversations. You can do this by scheduling various breaks throughout your event.

Live chat and social forums: Continual communication will ‘break the ice and make strangers feel like comrades. Make sure to build these opportunities into your events.

Share Engaging Content

You need to deliver high-quality and engaging content if you want your events to be of any use. Doing the following makes this possible:

  • Pre-event content offers – engage your audience and encourage them to listen to your information even before you host the event. This will guarantee that you will have a greater turnout and interaction during your actual event. You can do this through interactive and engaging marketing emails and social media posts.
  • Use downloadable resources – make sure that you have downloadable content. Seeing something in writing will make what you’re discussing even more powerful and impactful.
  • Have an always-on environment – have a perpetual event. You’ll find that it will engage more interaction and lead to greater attendee turnout in the future.

Virtual Hiring Must be Part of your Digital Transformation.

Digital Transformation is not a new thing.  In fact, it began for many companies long ago as they realized the importance of data.  By digitizing information, you can easily gather, sort, and create reports to analyze.

From the migration of paper to digital and written forms into online forms, digital transformation continued to expand.  E-commerce has taken front and center as Covid-19 completely shut down in-person access to many businesses and events.

 

All around the globe, organizations have had to suddenly reevaluate their business plans. The need to create a memorable digital experience for your customers has never been greater. Having the luxury of delaying your digital transformation is gone and could mean falling behind your competitors while they fully embrace theirs.

 

This has never been truer in the world of recruiting and staffing.  The evolution of hiring has taken us from classified ads in the newspaper to online job boards and ATS systems that filter and track applicants.  The next stage that was accelerated by the pandemic is virtual hiring and hosting online job fairs or hiring events.

 

Not that this strategy is completely new, but the tools and platforms to do so have evolved tremendously.  For example, on the Premier Virtual platform recruiters can host and attend a virtual job fair from the comfort of their desk.  Applicants can participate from anywhere in the world.  Recruiters can quickly glance at resumes, enter a chat, and invite job applicants into a video interview, in a matter of seconds.

 

The platform streamlines the screening process and reduces time to hire from an average of over 30 days, to under 7 days in many cases.  That type of functionality was not possible before platforms like Premier Virtual when all companies had access to was MS Teams or Zoom.

 

Maybe the most crucial feature of remote hiring events is again the data that brings us back to digital transformation.  At one time, resumes were collected on paper at these events and taken back to the office to sort.  Now all resumes can be downloaded with a click of the button.  Recruiters can keep notes during the event and download reports to follow up accordingly.

 

Businesses and organizations continue to recognize the importance of virtual hiring but have fluctuated from in-person to virtual based on the current climate.  If there is a new variant, and covid cases spike, we see an immediate return to virtual.  One recent Forbes article according to Burbio, a firm that monitors school data, more than 2,000 schools were prepared to close for at least one day, due to Covid-19 concerns for the first week of January. There are about 21 states with at least one school district closed or transitioning to remote learning this week. Reuters reports that thousands of U.S. schools have delayed this week’s scheduled to return to classrooms, following the holiday break, or switched to remote learning, as the Omicron variant spread.

 

As 2022 begins, many New Jersey school districts are going virtual to deal with the ongoing spike in Covid-19 cases and the staffing shortages it has caused. The data shows that the vast majority of these are poor, underserved children. This is a disaster for both the children and parents.

 

Just in the last week, we had 3 schools, Richland School District 2, District 5 Lexington and Wade County Public Schools that had to pivot from in-person job fairs to virtual.  Because they have a license with Premier Virtual, they had the virtual job fair set up and ready to go in the event they would not be able to move forward with the in-person event, and that’s exactly what happened.  The results were extremely positive with hundreds of applicants attending virtually and many new hires and connections were made at each event.

The stark reality is that Covid is here to stay.  We must plan for a world that mitigates this challenge the best way possible, and integrating virtual hiring is a key component.  There is no more time to wait or consider if virtual is right for you, it is right for everyone.

 

We see more and more candidates choosing to apply and attend virtually and looking for remote or virtual job opportunities.  The better prepared your company or organization is to offer these options, the more talent you will attract and retain.

 

If you are still wondering if you need to add virtual to your hiring strategy, do not delay the decision any longer.  The sooner you put a platform like Premier Virtual in place, the sooner you will set your company staffing needs up for success.

Virtual Hiring Is the Future: Premier Virtual Tackles ATS Discrimination With Virtual Hiring Rooms

A recent Harvard Business report revealed that ATS, which is an applicant tracking system, is responsible for blocking or disqualifying many qualified applicants. 

This system, which ranks relevant keywords, skills, degrees, credentials, responsibilities and other qualities that indicate to a hiring manager or recruiter that the applicant is qualified for the position has been deemed impersonal, and quite frankly unfair to applicants who don’t know how to use such keywords. 

The online virtual job and career fair platform Premier Virtual has an innovative solution to this complex problem. 

Virtual hiring rooms. That’s right. The future-focused technology company has positioned itself as a go-to company to help employers create virtual hiring rooms to make job hunting more personal and fair. 

Now, hiring managers can meet candidates in a virtual hiring room. Think of it as a 24/7 office that can be linked to your company’s job listings. This allows company recruiters to schedule an ‘open-house on set days and times where candidates can meet and chat.  If there is a fit, the recruiter can enter into a pre-screening interview, and then decide if the candidate should be scheduled for a more formal interview. 

This tool has proven to reduce time to hire from an average of 30 days to just over 7 days.  

What’s included in a virtual hiring room? Here’s what you can expect:

  • Fully Customizable Hiring Room
  • Live Reporting During Events
  • Video Interviews
  • Candidate Matching Based on Experience
  • Registration Setup Wizard
  • Ability to Host Webinar
  • Built-in Text and Email Reminders
  • API to Integrate with Current ATS Systems
  • Candidate “Journey” with Ability to Rank Companies and Track Their Progress in the Event
  • Organization ability to tag candidates before an event to show interest and schedule interview

Premier Virtual is the no. 1 virtual career fair platform in the industry, with nearly 200 Workforce Development Boards choosing the company for online career and hiring events. 

Don’t let the ATS systems choose your candidates for you, take back control of the hiring process with your own virtual hiring room.
