COVID-19: Essential business lessons for recruitment leaders

COVID-19 has changed the way that recruiters do business.

We’ve embraced new ways of working. Shifts in the labour market has created new opportunities, and with that comes the need for new skills and knowledge. Mental health and well-being is on the spotlight, and running a business remotely is asking new questions of leaders and their teams.

These new challenges, coupled with a changing labour market, is creating a new era of recruitment. The businesses that thrive in the future will be the ones that learn quickly and adapt.

At the REC, we have worked tirelessly to understand the impact on our industry, and to produce resources to support recruiters.
