    At the end of 2019 before the pandemic became widespread in the US, opinion research firm CivicScience began tracking work from home productivity. Since the start of the pandemic, the data around WFH has undergone quite the evolution and most workers are considered more productive.

    It almost goes without saying: When you are reviewing candidates, you want to see their resumes. The resume is probably the most consistent component in the recruiting process, the only truly universal ingredient across companies and roles of all kinds. Yet despite its ubiquity, the resume is a deeply flawed method of evaluating candidates. At best, it is only a very small piece of the puzzle when it comes to making the right hiring decision.
