Since a few weeks we are living in a strange world. Nothing is certain, many businesses are having a hard time, people are worried about their health and that of their loved ones, about their future…. In short, everything that was certain is not, and our priorities have changed 180°!!!
At M18 Executive Search we continue to recruit because there is a tomorrow. And for now most of our clients are still determined to hire the best talent. And rightly so…
- Candidates have much time at hand to think about what they want in life. And an important part of this thought process is the reflection about their career. We are therefore contacted more often than ever by great candidates that have made up their mind and want to switch.
- Most of us are sitting at home and do not travel. Candidates are thus much more available than ever to have a chat when one of our recruiters calls. Even more so, they are happy with the distraction and very open to listen to what we have to say.
- The future is uncertain which is why many companies are afraid to recruit right now. Only a month ago we were living a war for talent, today we are in a war of survival. As result we are moving to a situation where talent is no longer sought after as much. For companies that do have the guts to continue hiring, this creates opportunities! These employers become even more attractive for future employees since their vision is long term, and because they seem confident to survive and able to overcome even the biggest challenges.
As Warren Buffet puts it, “we simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.”
So if you believe in his approach, then this is THE time to recruit in order to stay ahead of the game. Take a calculated risk, and by doing this you’ll be creating your own ‘UNFAIR ADVANTAGE’.
If you decide to stay ahead of the game, then we at M18 are available to advise you anytime!
