The world has changed. The Covid-19 pandemic that first hit the world in 2020 has created a new global reality for employers and employees that will ensure we never quite return to ‘Business As Usual’ again in terms of how we live and work.
With the age of the pandemic upon us, it’s now important to not just apply for jobs you would like to be employed in, but also asses the ‘risk profile’ of any new organisation as part of your job hunt process. You will need to ask questions like:
- Was this a business that struggled, survived or thrived through the pandemic?
- Is this business involved in industries that have been significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic?
- Did this company make any staff redundant during the last Covid-19 pandemic?
- If another pandemic takes place, will this company shed any new staff based on their previous history?
We have now entered a new stage of employment globally where these queries need to be answered, alongside more traditional employment questions we have always asked relating to aspects such as salary, leadership style, personal development opportunities etc..
Before you say 'yes', remember to assess any new opportunity based on these questions.
