Too many owners are waiting for things to get back to “normal” and that won’t happen. It’s going to be a new normal, unless you live in an area of the country that has not been affected.

It is important that you anticipate the changes you will face. The first one is new questions from candidates and clients. These will include:

  1. Is PPE going to be provided
  2. Social distancing provisions
  3. Will temperatures be taken
  4. How will co-workers with symptoms be handled
  5. Elevators
  6. Lunchrooms
  7. Video Interviews offered
  8. Remote working options

Consistently monitor your emotions and the emotions and changing priorities of your employees, candidates, and clients. Now more important than ever before start every conversation with, “Has anything changed since the last time we spoke?”


Now is the time to position your company with clients, prospects, and candidates. They will remember if you were there for them in good times and bad. They will remember if you talked to them when you were not making money. They will remember if you called to check in on them and their families. They will also know other companies who could utilize your services, so make sure you have your Client Referral Program in place which will benefit them and you!


Continue to market candidates who have not been on the market in three years, offer creative solutions to interviews, offers, and on boarding. Also, discuss the benefits of temp or contract staffing which could solve immediate needs if employees who were laid-off or furloughed decide not to return to work.
