This Week in Talent (4 Mar)

Note From The Editor

This past week I’ve been thinking about what our future hiring strategies will look like. What will our ‘rule of thumb’ be when recruiting a role in this new hybrid working world. I’ve also been thinking a lot about diversity and inclusion, and how that will also incorporate into this hiring strategy. Remote hiring is a fantastic opportunity to be more diverse and attract and a wide range of candidates to our roles, but are we making the most of this opportunity or just falling back into old habits? A lot happening in my head this week – it’s mayhem up there! As always, reach out if you have anything on this topic you’d love to share. I’d love to pick your brain for future newsletters!

Jobs On The Rise In 2021

LinkedIn’s annual report on jobs that will be on the rise this year. I thought it was interesting to see that remote health care roles are booming in Aus … a reflection of the times, however it could be a sign that Aussies are prioritising their mental health and seeking help when they need it – particularly now that care is so accessible being online and moving to Telehealth appointments. Go Aus!
