The in-house recruitment function is constantly changing with the introduction of new technologies, new job types, changing job market pressures, and new expectations from today’s job seekers. However, the fundamental principles very much remain the same.

This coming February 22nd we’ll be bringing in a number of experts together with members of our community (you) to discuss how recruitment will evolve over the next 5 years. Specifically trends we’re already seeing in the job market and what we can expect in the next 5 years as we look at the impact that the accelerated adoption of automation is having on employment.
