"Will the worlds of recruitment and training continue to converge? What kinds of new market developments can be anticipated?"
The worlds of recruitment and training are converging, a trend accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The consolidation of the human resources and recruitment sectors can be traced back to the 2010s, with several important mergers disrupting the market, including Recruit’s acquisition of Indeed and Randstad’s of Monster. More recently, some of the most dynamic recruitment players have started to acquire skilling companies. Such acquisitions include LinkedIn’s of Lynda.com, Addeco’s of General Assembly, and SEEK’s of Future Learn. The latest in the IFC Education Webinar Series brings together thought leaders on this topic from different global regions to share insights on where the industry might be headed.
The speakers tackle such key questions as: How can talent-seeking companies leverage the opportunities presented by the changing world of work, one where workers are expected to constantly upskill and reskill? Will the worlds of recruitment and training continue to converge? And what kinds of new market developments can be anticipated?
