9:15 - Tim found that he got a 6 to 1 ROI while using Visage.
14:30 - Tim asks Joss what he is seeing with this mass influx of hiring in almost all markets. He says that companies are changing what they require out of candidates and he doesn’t know if the market will stabilize any time soon in the next 15-24 months.
17:30 - Tim says that there are simply not enough workers to fill all of the open jobs that exist for the next few years.
19:30 - Tim mentions how most people want to go have some experience in the office but they still want the flexibility to work remotely when it’s convenient for them.
22:30 - Final question: what can organizations do to improve quickly? Joss says that choosing a concrete long-term plan of remote vs. in person work and making it well known will help be more transparent to candidates.
24:30 - Tim has his new recruiters work in the office full time until they are comfortable enough and proficient enough to start working remotely.
