Covid-19 Pandemic had reportedly struck down the total GDP of the staffing industry by 11% (Refer graph below). But the industry is back with a BANG, with the introduction of Hybrid recruitment and Hybrid Learning model. Wondering what these are?
Staffing industry has seen its ups and down in the last few decades. It has gone from picking resumes out of newspaper adverts respondents in the 80s, to zoom call interviews that happen across two different parts of the globe. “Necessity is the mother of invention” proven to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, for the industry after the pandemic. Re-inventing Talent acquisition strategies was the need of the hour - which paved the way for a hybrid recruiting and hybrid learning model to make room for itself in the recruitment process.
This new model has changed the way contractors, job seekers, and recruiters, staffing agencies and Hiring officials engage with each other and with future job opportunities.
Hybrid recruitment doesn’t refer to the in-person and online interview process but also encompasses the full range of recruitment, including placing job ads for sourcing candidates, selecting them, communicating with team members, and collecting candidate feedback. With the pandemic shutting down all in-person activities, companies adopted virtual mode of communication and a technological advanced recruitment process, and this model came to be known as Hybrid recruiting model.
Using virtual recruiting tools such as recruiting Chabot’s, virtual hiring events, video interviewing, and professional networking platforms among others, helped organizations reduce hiring costs, speed up the time to hire, enhance the interview process with online assignment and video calls, and open up the potential of faster candidate processing in each step of the recruiting process. From sourcing to On boarding, any of the components of the recruiting processes can be digitized, paired with in-person strategies.
E-Learning has evolved in different ways in the education, business for different sectors. At the school level, e-Learning refers to a learning process that uses both software-based and online learning tools, whereas in business, training and higher education sectors, e-Learning refers to online learning. So now let’s get to know what Hybrid learning model is
Hybrid learning implements synchronous lessons taught in-person and online. It is a type of blended learning that focuses more on bridging the physical classroom and virtual learning spaces closer together into a more complete education.

Recruiters of days gone by would find today’s processes to be downright wondrous. With all the technology and resources in place, the entire hiring process can now completed in a matter of days, including background checks. It’s an exciting time to be looking for an employee or a job.
A study from Vlerick Business School in Belgium noted the importance of flexibility. Professor Katleen de Stobbeleir said: “Flexibility in working location and hours is good for your employer branding as younger employees want more control in this area. Employees in other phases of life, such as young parents or caregivers, will also embrace the chance to work from home.”
The Atlantic’s Ed Zitron recently put it: “Remote work lays bare many brutal inefficiencies and problems that executives don’t want to deal with because they reflect on leaders and those they’ve hired. Remote work empowers those who produce and disempowers those who have succeeded by being excellent diplomats and poor workers, along with those who have succeeded by always finding someone to blame for their failures.”

The pandemic has posed significant challenges in the day-to-day activities of education. The immediate impact has been lockdowns over the last year and the enforced closure of schools, colleges and universities. Many universities had already adopted practices to make their education delivery flexible and accessible to meet student needs.
Knowing how well students can work remotely is key in choosing an appropriate style of delivery, so data was collected on students’ experience of online working. 71% of respondents reported they had a quiet place to study during lockdown; the remaining students struggled to obtain a quiet place to study. 33% of students faced issues with their working environment being too noisy, too dark, poorly lit and/or subject to temperature fluctuations.
