Human resource practitioners have met an array of challenges during the pandemic. That makes now an ideal time for industry professionals to update their resumes.
“The pandemic turned the world of work on its head, requiring HR professionals to develop strategies, programs and procedures to meet the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly evolving workforce,” says Alyssa Gelbard, founder and CEO of Point Road Group, a New York City-based career consulting firm. “This resulted in development of new skill sets to effectively manage, recruit and onboard distributed teams; keep employees safe; drive remote engagement; and support new ways of operating. These skills should be reflected on their resumes.”
