Elliott Scott HR’s Managing Director for North America, Roshan Jayawardena, gives a Q3 Market Update for the US region.


Recently, there has been a lot of conflicting data, that is confusing to understand. We are seeing high profile tech companies make massive layoffs, there have been talks of recessions although we are experiencing record number of jobs, inflation due to wage increases and the impact of The Great Vacation.


The candidate mindset has definitely shifted, we are now seeing previously unattainable HR talent come on to the market and passive candidates that are harder to engage. There have been debates around remote, in office and hybrid opportunities and the benefits and pitfalls of each.
