Understanding how to strategically attract and retain top talent directly contributes to a company’s overall productivity and bottom line. Triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses face a significant shift from the traditional methods of candidate recruitment, hiring and retention and must quickly modernize their HR strategies to remain competitive.
