HR Recruitment During Covid-19

Along with the world economy and healthcare systems, Covid has also changed how HR recruiting is done.

There’s a re-examination of talent acquisition strategies and technology. Many of these changes raise the bar of the recruitment process. There is no turning the clock back to pre-pandemic times. These changes will be around long after the pandemic subsides.

There are more opportunities in digitalisation post-pandemic, such as automation of recruiting processes for interviews and candidate assessments. Around 13%, or 1 in 10 HR managers are seeing Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) being a normal part of HR, based on a national study by Harris Poll.

We are proud to announce that despite the global economic downturn and travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we successfully recruited the newest Regional Product Manager for ANDRITZ, the International technology group. They provide plants, systems, equipment, and services for various industries.

The publicly listed group has around 27,200 employees and more than 280 locations in over 40 countries. The key to success in changing times is adaptability and flexibility, as ANDRITZ has clearly demonstrated.

“All our business areas were affected by the negative economic impact of this crisis – albeit to different extents,” said Wolfgang Leitner, President and CEO of ANDRITZ.

“Nevertheless, we succeeded largely in limiting the financial impact, especially due to the enormous flexibility of all our employees,” said Leitner in his annual letter to the shareholders.

Crisis and opportunities sometimes happen simultaneously. As ANDRITZ were affected by Covid-19, they also marshalled their resources to be part of the solution. 

Billions of people needed to have high quality respiratory and face masks to have the best protection against Covid-19. Due to that problem, innovative and reliable production processes were more in demand than ever.

“We asked ourselves what we could do to help and then got down to work. We delved into the characteristics of respiratory masks – materials, construction, special features, until far into the night,”said Fabrice Ferretti, Sales Manager at ANDRITZ Diatec.

“Our team is proud to have achieved so much in such a short time – and to have stood up to Covid-19, Ferretti added. Their innovative breakthrough was the D-TECH Face Mask line. The production line is officially supported by the German Health Alliance (GHA).
