What do NZ employers expect from recruitment agencies?

Influenced by a wide range of factors, including the development of in-house recruitment capabilities, the relationship between buyers and sellers of recruitment services continues to evolve. Can employers do without the help of agencies? Can agencies provide new compelling services that will be valued by employers? At #RHUBNZ, some of the biggest employers in NZ will discuss their ongoing relationship and expectations of talent solution providers. See details below:

Inhouse teams and RPOs now dominate recruitment within major corporate and public sector organisations, and many recruitment centres and talent teams are involved in market mapping, succession planning, workforce development, onboarding and internal mobility programmes, thereby reducing the reliance on traditional agency services. What role, then, is left for recruitment agencies? How has the typical agency model kept up with these changes, can it provide strategic solutions to major organisations, or is it about to become irrelevant outside the SME market?

These and many other questions about the implications of shifting dynamics will be answered by our panellists, who are local leaders of in-house recruitment and talent teams. They will reveal how their models currently supply their in-house needs and share their thoughts about the future of external staffing service providers. Learn about how agencies can find new ways to create value in tailoring recruitment solutions to adapt to a changing landscape.
