In recent years, employers have grown increasingly concerned about the ongoing talent shortage. The impact of the Sansdemic — a decades-long demographic decrease has led to a shortfall in candidates available for employment vacancies. Employers are expected to continue to feel the pinch in 2023 and beyond.

The 2023 Talent Market Will Be Highly Competitive
Signs of recessions are strong, and the number of layoffs is increasing. Realistically, talent shortages continue will continue to plague employers in the coming years. Thoughtful hiring managers can turn challenges into advantages. Remote work is on the rise – that means you can cast a wider net. You’re not limited by geography. People continue to leave jobs in the Great Resignation, but many are now regretting the move and are ready to move on again or return to their previous employer.
Not Everyone Loves Working from Home
While many employees thrive in a remote/hybrid environment, others have reservations. They are concerned about being left out of consideration for raises and promotions when they’re not in the office every day. They find themselves working longer hours and skipping breaks while worrying about proving their productivity to their employers. These employees are prime candidates for your in-house vacancies.
Recruit From the Past
Re-recruiting will be hot in 2023. Candidates who were previously finalists for jobs but accepted other offers or were narrowly edged out of the competition might be just the right fit for your latest job opening. Reach out to former employees, too. If they left on good terms, they are likely to be even more desirable with more experience and greater skills.
Streamline Your Hiring Process
Long applications, multiple interviews and a slow decision-making process are how you lose top talent. The best candidates have plenty of options. In 2023, they’ll go elsewhere rather than wait for you.
