The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all industries but some more than others. The economy has fallen into a recession, which will inevitably have a huge impact on how companies recruit new talent. At the same time, many familiar methods, such as face-to-face job interviews, onboarding of new employees, or the overall efficiency of the general recruitment process need to be replaced or optimized with more innovative methods. What are the challenges due to live video interviews or recorded video interviews and online pre-onboarding processes? How about starting to build your talent community, to react fast when having layoffs, only a few available positions, or getting more open applications? EPIC built the biggest jobs website in photonics, Jobs in Photonics, which already represents the basis for this concept.

Let us get into a dialogue with the leading HR companies of the EPIC network to discover new potentials and finding solutions for promising challenges: Orion Engineering, TMC, EO Executives, INSIGHT, Profound Corporate Recruitment.
