World Employment Conference flags common challenges for global recruitment industry

World Employment Conference flags common challenges for global recruitment industry
The annual World Employment Conference is taking place this week in Rotterdam. Initial discussions have flagged a number of major challenges for the global recruitment industry and covered specific priority areas for UK recruiters.
The Conference is the annual event of CIETT the representative body for the world-wide recruitment industry. This years event was hosted by ABU the national federation for the staffing industry in Holland.
Commenting from the event, Tom Hadley, the RECs Director of Policy and Professional Services says:
This is the annual gathering of the global recruitment community. It is a great opportunity to find solutions to common challenges. So far these have included enhancing client relationships, developing cross-border activities and making the best use of new technology.
Trends from the US and other markets will inform our own work and will be fed back to our members. The event has also enabled us to provide a UK perspective on issues such as enhancing professional standards, procurement and co-operating with public employment services
Initial sessions have confirmed that the industry is on the road to recovery with double-digit growth in many markets. At the same time, there is a huge political pressure on agency work in many countries and recruiters also are having to adapt to changing client needs and new supply models. This is an important time for the industry to come together and learn from each other.
The 2012 World Employment Conference will take place in London and will be hosted by the REC.
