Commenting on the virtual summit, the first to recognise our suppliers on a global scale, our Chief Operating Officer Brian Salkowski said:
“Over the past 12 months, the labour challenges posed by Covid-19 have been different, but no less demanding, than those we faced in 2020. Through a year of acute global talent scarcity, our recruitment suppliers have done an incredible job of getting the right people in the right places at the right times - to enable our customers’ ongoing success.
“I’m thankful not just for these 10 outstanding suppliers but for all our invaluable recruitment supply partners across the world. With worldwide talent shortages showing no sign of abating, they will continue to play a crucial role and we look forward to working with them in 2022.”
