HirePro surveyed 279 recruiters, talent acquisition and HR professionals for the report.
Only about 10% of recruitment was mostly fully remote before Covid-19 struck.With the onset of the pandemic, recruitment process moved remote with 80-90% of organizations conducting recruitment mostly to fully remote.
However, after the pandemic, when things came back to normal, organizations did not go back to the pre-pandemic ways of physical recruitment.
For hiring at junior, middle and senior levels, 85-90% of the recruitment is either partially, mostly or fully remote. Only in campus hiring, about one-fourth of organizations continue to have limited to no-remote processes.
Cost saving and time saving have been voted the biggest benefits of remote recruitment when it comes to campus hiring. This is followed by process efficiency and wider access to the talent pool. Cost and time savings were voted as the biggest benefit of remote recruitment for junior and middle level as well.
For senior level hiring, remote recruitment offers cost and time savings along with wider access to the talent pool. Organizations were able to tap into the otherwise inaccessible talent pool due to geographic and travel constraints.
There are several concerns regarding remote hiring. Candidates indulging in malpractices during online assessments and virtual interviews is the major concern for organizations in remote recruitment. This is followed by the lack of human connect. Adoption and usage of remote recruitment tools by the recruiters and hiring managers is the third big concern.
Organizations do not foresee going back to the old ways of recruitment. 60-70% organizations believe that their recruitment processes will continue to be partially to mostly to fully remote.
In campus hiring as well as senior level hiring, 30-40% employers anticipate limited-to-no-remote recruitment, i.e. the physical form.
