Managing Costs. Many SMB leaders have been taking a careful look at their costs during the pandemic, and some were even surprised by areas of their business that had become bloated. Leaders can minimize surprises like those by more regularly assessing changing external and internal risks and opportunities brought about by the pandemic, and realigning their resources around those factors. By maintaining strong financial discipline, leaders can be better prepared for the unpredictable. When leaders operate a lean business, they free up resources to invest in innovation that can lead to new growth.

So I think it’s time for companies and hiring managers to fully reassess their existing human resources and what business opportunities exist in this current climate in order to determine how hiring needs and processes — for both leaders and employees generally — need to adjust to remain competitive and consistent. Here are nine tips for executives looking to assess their hiring needs and adjust their hiring practices to address the new challenges. Prioritize hiring needs based on necessity, function, work arrangement, and location. Positions that can be moved to or are already set up as an at-home arrangement can be interviewed remotely and onboarded virtually should take precedence over other roles, once necessities and functional priorities have been determined.
