The past year created unprecedented challenges for employers and the broader workforce, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic slowdown. However, 2021 is shaping up to be a year of recovery. As vaccinations ramp up throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world, normal life is resuming and businesses are returning to more regular operations. In fact, S&P Global expects the U.S. GDP to grow by 6.5% this year. As the economic activity rebounds, employers are also considering how to ensure their hiring and staffing efforts meet the moment.
