Companies are often happy to cooperate and agree to the candidates’ proposals in as many as half of the cases. Negotiations can also be seen as a demonstration of leadership skills and the ability to manage a team. A candidate forms a position and offers it according to company bylaws. In an epidemic and post-epidemic environment, the job market suffers mainly from workplace hazards, especially in hospitals. The consequence is understaffing due to fear of illness so that candidates may qualify for more favorable terms (Soubry, Rosen & Tsioumani, 2021). For example, in hospitals, wage levels have risen with the growth of workers. The situation is the opposite in other industries, as people lost their jobs because of the pandemic. Now there is a recovery period, and companies are trying to attract more people. It is the reason why negotiations are promising for both sides.
