We were delighted to host our most recent In-house Recruitment Breakfast event yesterday in partnership with Korn Ferry on The Art of Using Assessment Tools to Transform Your Recruitment Delivery. We were lucky enough to hear from two specialist guest speakers who provided invaluable insights into assessment and how it can have a positive impact on your recruitment delivery. We also held two intimate roundtable discussions where industry peers were able to share their experiences and uncover solutions to any issues they had been facing. We were thrilled with the positive feedback we received from those in attendance.
