Brighter days for the labor market in Lebanon
This past year has been a shock to the labor market. According to the International Labor Organization 400 million full-time jobs were lost during the second quarter of 2020. In these troubling times, the recruiting industry has the responsibility to maintain a socio-economical balance. It must find innovative and technology-driven solutions in order to provide recruiting strategies at minimal costs. Current trends in inflation will not only cause a global decrease in employment, but also budget constraints regarding any new overhead. Hiring top talents will be the only option for managers to sustain service quality in the most optimal way possible.
Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work. Remote working can be a challenge, but also a great opportunity. Employers will no longer have to provide funding for transportation, office facilities and inquiries, insurance, and other additional costs. Employees can also benefit from the6se changes, as they avoid traffic jams, save up money on food, and work from the comfort of their own home.
In this context, Hayek Group is proud to announce the soft launch of its’ sister company, Premium Recruiting.
