In today’s world, things change quickly, and the recruiting market is no different. To remain competitive, it is critical to stay abreast of key trends so you can make proactive adjustments and set realistic expectations. 

Recruitment leaders from Advanced RPO, a leading recruitment process outsourcing provider, share what they are seeing in the real world, and how it can affect your business and recruiting efforts.

What you'll learn

Some burning questions that will be explored are:

  •  Ghosting – Will this phenomenon continue, or are we seeing it lose steam?
  • Wage Growth – Increases may be slowing, but will we see them pull back at all?
  • Competition for Talent – While we see news stories about large layoffs, what does the overall market look like?
  • Recruitment Scalability – How can companies build out a recruitment program that reduces fixed costs while not impeding agility?

Who should view? 

C-Suite, Executives, and Directors responsible for:

  • HR
  • Talent Acquisition People
  • HR / People Analytics
  • Recruitment
This informative webinar will be useful for both the experienced and inexperienced hiring manager, human resources, or talent acquisition person, across all levels. Attendees will appreciate that the topics chosen are relevant and that the individuals from Advanced RPO are speaking directly from current real-life experiences with companies and positions across the country – not from dated experiences when the talent market was not what it is today. Be ready to take notes to help you solve some of your toughest hiring challenges.
