How has COVID-19 changed the unemployment level? Do we have less unemployment than a year ago? Does it mean that the demand for candidates (the number of LinkedIn job ads) increased? Or is it the other way around? We took a closer look at the European unemployment rates and identified which countries noted an increase, a decrease, or a return to the unemployment level from before the COVID-19 pandemic after more than 1 year of its duration.

HR trends: Separating

HR trends: Separating by Career Angels

HR trends: Separating by Career Angels

About the series: CV-19 has accelerated many trends, including (or especially!) those related to HR and recruitment. Companies that want to hire valuable candidates – who don’t quit after 3 months – have to make sure they keep up with the newest trends. What’s even more important: the need to implement new strategies in the right way.

Trends that are introduced too fast and/or by the wrong department will backfire by e.g. generating additional costs, negative employer branding, losing valuable candidates, longer recruitment processes, low(er) candidate experience, etc.

To help companies avoid these mistakes, we put together a summary of the most important trends along an employee’s life cycle – with their accompanying threats and – where possible – adding relatively simple quick wins – everything backed by stats and real cases.

This week, we are sharing one trend and threat related to Phase #5 out of 5: Separating.
