Our New COVID-19 Vocabulary | RR Recruitment Weekly

Words and Expressions that you never want to hear again…

Have you noticed the unprecedented use of the word unprecedented?  We have developed a whole new COVID-19 language of terms, phrases and words that have all taken on significant meaning different from the world we remember back in February. They have intruded into everyone’s day-to-day vernacular. There’s no escaping the language of a pandemic 2020 style.

The list goes on. The recruitment sector is no different. Terms such as ‘redundancy’ and ‘stand-down’ are an unfortunate reality, with ‘reduced hour’s and ‘pay cuts’ hot on their tail. Health and well-being has renewed significance as we all ‘cope’, ‘stay safe’ and ‘take care’.

I for one, will be glad to see the back of many of the above words and phrases as we ‘pivot’ towards our ‘new normal post COVID’.

The sooner our day-to-day dialogue no longer includes any of the above-mentioned vocabulary with corona-free conversations, the better!
