Like every other aspect of our lives, the coronavirus has also transformed the way companies recruit talent. Goodbye face-to-face activities and now everything is done online and remotely: interviews, dynamics, exhibitions, courses …
That’s why we spoke to Roco Rodríguez, Associate Director of Talent Attraction and Acquisition at EY, to talk to us about new trends in talent recruitment. “We have gone from some face-to-face actions and now all the job fairs are virtual, all the workshops are virtual, the courses are virtual … What we cannot do is pass from a face-to-face format to trying to do the same in a virtual way What you have to do is adapt the formats and methodologies, ”he explains.
In addition, in the professional services business, a large part of the selection process is done through games. “Above all, what has changed is that everything is done in a fun way, through games, in a much more fun way. At EY, the selection process has always been a lot of fun but even more fun now, ”explains our interviewee.
