ABOUT THE SESSION
Concurrent Session – Is collaboration useful in our business?
Collaboration and connection are two words that are becoming prevalent in studies that point us in the right direction for growth in the next decade. We are being told that today’s employee wants to be involved, wants to participate and wants to be connected. If leaders can create the right environment for collaboration and connection then business will flourish, innovation will happen and your people will be engaged.
During this discussion we will ask whether or not collaboration is useful within Recruitment consultancies and if it is, how can it be achieved in a way that adds value to the business.
