If you’ve been in recruitment for long enough, you have seen the labor market go up and down, but the statistics released in 2021 take the cake!. The Great Resignation made it evident to employers that the ball is not in their court anymore, and employees are taking back their power. Read our top 3 tech staffing trends we think you can expect in 2022!
Diversity in the workplace
In 2020 and 2021, many companies took stands on diversity and inclusion in the workplace. In 2022 we will see that diversity and inclusion is a must-have, and potential candidates will look to see if you’re practicing what you preach. McKinsey & Company released their Diversity Wins report in 2021 and found that diverse companies have better profitability. The bottom line is that diverse workplaces offer employees a better sense of community and innovation.

Invest in employer branding
What is your employee value proposition (also known as your EVP)? Why is your company a place where people want to work? Ask executives, leadership, and your employees. Gather this information to form your EVP. A great example of a company that has invested in their EVP is Traders Joe’s! Trader Joe’s is an American chain of grocery stores with more than 500 stores nationwide. They’re widely recognized as one of the best retail employers (with one of the best retail employer brands) thanks to the numerous benefits offered to crew members. Their social media presence shares countless images of happy customers and happy employees!
Try promoting your employee advocacy by showcasing all aspects of the employee experiences. One of the coolest trends we saw in 2021 was Instagram story takeovers. Companies gave employees access to the company account that day, and their short-form video posts gave their followers an inside look at what a typical workday looked like.
Employee branding is the new word of mouth. Invest in your employee branding, and you’ll see your ROMI increase.
Remote work is here to stay
One of the critical reasons that made many employees take part in the Great Resignation was that they did not want to return to the office. Recent reports from Google made headlines that their original date to return to the office in January 2022 will now be pushed back. 2020 and 2021 have shown us that employees can get work done from the comfort of their home office, and unfortunately for many companies, these employees are not afraid to quit their jobs if remote working is not an option.
