What We Learned From Recruitment in 2018 and What Do You Need to Do in 2019?


Recruitment leaders, recruiters and their marketers are sat at their desks, pressing backspace on the 8 and changing to 9 (2018 / 2019) – wondering where 2018 has gone, and what needs to be different about their recruitment businesses in 2019.

We were flattered when asked by vsource to reflect and comment on what the team has learned from 2018.
