2018 Recruiter Nation Survey: The Tipping Point and The Next Chapter in Recruiting

Right now, the recruiting industry is on the edge of a tipping point. After years of shifting economies and a move towards candidate-centric strategies, it’s the dawn of a new era of recruiting.

Based on our survey results, recruiters are looking to things like retention rate and performance of hire to ensure they’re hiring the best.
