We are seeing a huge gap between the unemployed and the unfilled vacancies globally. In the U.S. only, 8 million Americans are unemployed and actively searching for employment, but an estimated 6 million U.S. jobs remain unfulfilled. In Germany, last year there was an average of 2,5 million Germans unemployed and about 650,000 unfilled vacancies.  This trend accentuated during COVID and will continue to grow since companies can’t fill those positions because the conventional recruitment...

It’s been a difficult time, but it has shone a bright light on issues that needed to improve. The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to abandon former habits and follow new, socially distant ones.

Current organizations need to evolve to stay ahead in today’s competitive world, and implementing new leadership promotes exciting opportunities for development. Besides the fresh perspectives, limited talent pools are fueling the need to search for great talent through industries. Cross-industry hiring is also a necessity in young emerging sectors such as FoodTech.

Tech talent is highly scarce, but today much more than ever. Even before the reality of COVID-19 reached everyone, companies were forced to create formal training and skilling programmes for workers in response to the lack of talent. According to Bersin, a Human Resources expert, in many cases, it can be six times less expensive to carry a process of “upskill” on teams than to outsource. It is clear that the coronavirus exploded digital transformation on...
