While these may all be in good fun, employers must not disregard the underlying concerns of employees about returning to workplaces. Some staff members are really worried about compliance of their workplaces on safety standards, while some are concerned on vaccinations and relationships with their colleagues.

To address this, Randstad advised employers to "lead the charge and take a stand when it comes to safety."

"Jobseekers are in the driver's seat right now but demonstrating your commitment to workplace safety is one of the most effective ways to position yourself as an employer of choice," Randstad added.
