Recruiting as times get tougher
I imagine all of you are caught up in the juggernaut of the coronavirus pandemic. As a valued customer, I wanted to share a few things with you:
JobScore has always been a remote-work-friendly company. We’re all productively working from home now – and we’re ready to help. As work from home veterans, please don’t hesitate to hit us for tips and tricks if remote work is new for your team.
While asking everyone to stay home, practice social distancing and follow the CDC guidelines I shared a story that our team really liked. They asked me to pass it along, so here it goes:
My brother in law is a medical doctor. He also has a master’s degree in public health. Above and beyond the standard advice, he shared something very wise:
- Focus on having a strong immune system. Table stakes are to get plenty of sleep, eat right and exercise. This seemed obvious, but then things got real. He said:
- Too much stress weakens your immune system. That’s right – worrying gives you a greater chance of getting sick.
- Laughter strengthens your immune system. So, one of the best ways you can fight off the virus is with quality guffaws.
As “people people” involved in recruiting we encourage you to find ways to laugh & be lighthearted – because it’s good for you and those around you. We’re trying to do that ourselves. As confidants and councilors, we encourage you to help your coworkers and loved ones reduce their stress levels… and if there’s any way we can help you laugh or de-stress, please let us know.
So what’s next?
We’ve been thinking about how recruiting will change in the current environment. We’ve already prioritized projects to promote work from home job opportunities and make it easier to schedule video calls. That said, we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org about how recruiting is changing at your organization and what we can do to make things easier.
Happy hiring and take care of yourselves!
