Concurrent Session – Outsourcing for Recruitment Agencies – The Strategic Benefit
The market has changed since the most recent downturn and will continue to do so, driven by structural movements in the way people choose to work, technology advances, social networking, skill shortages and generational change. The traditional “full service” solution model offered by many agencies may not be sufficiently flexible or adaptable to meet the emerging needs of customers.
When you add to this mix the increase in global mobility of skilled professionals it is no wonder that the recruitment industry world-wide is turning to outsourcing to make the most of scarce and valuable internal resources.
This session investigates how Australian recruitment companies are adopting the trends of other industries and incorporating outsourcing as part of their strategy.
