Candidates invited to job interviews in the era of the Covid-19 pandemic face many different challenges compared to those prior to 2020.
From furlough to remote working, the coronavirus has majorly disrupted our working lives. But what if you are lucky enough to be invited to a job interview?
Recruitment has changed dramatically during the Covid-19 pandemic. From Zoom interviews to half-empty offices, the standard job interview is a thing of the past.
If your organisation is in a position to be hiring new employees, you likely have a rich talent pool to select candidates from.
So what new questions should you ask in job interviews following Covid-19?
What is the difference between employee engagement and employee satisfaction?
The difference between employee engagement and employee satisfaction comes down to motivation.
Employee satisfaction is all about an employee’s happiness and contentment at work. While this is an important metric, it doesn’t always give a true indication of their motivation. For example, an employee may be happy and content, but they might not be performing to the levels they used to.
Employee engagement asks the question of whether someone is truly engaged and emotionally invested in your organisation – including your goals, values, building relationships with colleagues and their own personal development.
Employee engagement surveys are used by HR departments across the world to assess their employees’ commitment and motivation at work.
It’s not just about how happy they are – but how motivated they are to make a difference.
Working from home surveys can help ensure a smooth transition from office working to remote working.
For many organisations, the drastic need to implement remote working following the Covid-19 pandemic has been challenging. It’s also an entirely new experience for most employees around the world.
