Human resources leaders at federal contractors discussed how their companies transitioned to virtual onboarding of employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, Federal News Network reported Monday.
â€œI think virtual hiring fairs are here to stay,â€ Janet Hanofee, chief HR officer at SOS International, said Friday during a virtual panel discussion. â€œAnd, knowing that weâ€™re looking forward to the future that the types of technology skills that weâ€™re going to look for and leverage are expanding the demand for individuals that have backgrounds in AI machine learning automation â€” we see that as being in a greater demand now going forward.â€
Hanofee said the company came up with a communications campaign to inform employees of the safety precautions SOSi has implemented as approximately 25 percent of its corporate personnel chose to return to the office.
â€œWe invested quite a bit to make sure everybody felt safe,â€ she said.
