It’s a totally new world for hiring. John Chuang / CEO, Aquent
John Chuang talks about how COVID and collaborative technology has moved us all from a fragmented, localized labor market to one big labor market for the entire country. “If you only hire from your local market you will be at a disadvantage” he says. Chuang also explains how diversity and inclusion goals are now easier to meet; how staffing models can be designed and redesigned easily by combining core staff, contractors, agencies, a virtual studio; how companies are separating recruiting and employment services to get better performance from both; and much more. He predicts that post-COVID, the majority of employers will choose to stay all-remote or hybrid.
