As we’re heading into an economic downturn, many businesses are asking themselves the same people-related questions:

How do we continue to grow our business without growing our headcount as planned? Might we even need to lay off employees? Which roles are essential? With more candidates on the market – how do we find the right one for those roles we still need to fill?

Regardless of your answer to any of these queries – too many companies make rash decisions before considering all the implications. So, what are those implications we need to be aware of?

Troi have partnered with Alva Labs to explore how to hire during a recession and how companies can rethink approaches to their recruitment process during an economic downturn.
