Since people have been staying home more than usual, the hiring process has changed for many employers. Candidates can now claim hardly verifiable information on their resumes, with no one to check it properly as most interviews are now done virtually and many HR turn to electronic verifications (with very limited and sanitized results) instead of manual (more information from more sources).
Moreover, once people eventually return to the office, employers will face many other challenges. With the increase of general social anxiety and intensifying of the various individual psychological concerns (depression, psychopathy, narcissism, dissociative disorders, ADHD, etc.), it will be more difficult for people to interact with each other in an office setting once again.
These challenges will stress the importance of the pre-employment verifications, psychological profiling interviews, background checks, workplace harassment and workplace violence investigations, workplace termination proceedings and other various work-related risk assessments.
Most likely theft and fraud in the workplace will increase as well. Employers will more than ever seek to protect their interests (securing their premises with audio/video cameras, security guards, computer security and IT upgrades, etc.) and will have to know who they are hiring and dealing with, and then closely monitoring their behaviour during these unprecedented times.
