Recruiters should consider how flexibility can simplify their talent acquisition efforts. While being flexible doesn’t mean you have to disregard long-standing best practices (like asking each applicant the same set of prescreening questions), it does mean that you’ll have an easier time attracting, onboarding and retaining great talent, no matter what this year has in store.
