The Place to Go for RPO.TM

The global economy has significantly been disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, and this disruption has trickled down into all aspects of business, including talent acquisition. Many organizations had to pivot and become fairly agile in response to this disruption. Almost all hiring functions and processes transitioned rapidly into a virtual environment. Technological solutions empowered and inspired the transformation of many recruiting and hiring practices. In other words, while the pandemic disrupted our lives and work, it also accelerated transformation. 

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity”― Albert Einstein
