The Power of People: Announcing the First Speakers for Engage London 2018

Engage London

If the past six months have taught us anything about the shape of recruitment in 2018, it’s that the industry is centred on two key factors: building relationships and utilising new technology. From using social media or AI to reach and attract diverse talent pools, innovating interview processes with video and virtual reality, or delivering market research and analytic insights to clients, the 2018 UK Recruitment Trends Report points to these two areas as the most significant for forward-thinking recruiters keen to harness the power of people.

You may be thinking, ‘Sure, I can get on board with relationship building and using new tech, but what does that have to do with the power of people?’ Well, whether you’re empowering employees within your own agency to be super recruiters, your client’s business to grow by fulfilling their staffing needs, or your candidates with excellent opportunities and the best possible candidate experience, recruitment is all about the power of people

In fact, the power of people within recruitment is so important that it’s the focus of Engage London 2018, the leading European recruitment event. Over, two days of in-depth unparalleled industry insights on the future of recruitment and product training will embolden UK recruitment professionals who are facing ongoing economic and socio-political shifts, helping to improve productivity, and better utilise new technology for faster ROI.

A Keynote from Bullhorn CEO Art Papas

“When I founded Bullhorn, I wanted to build a company that delighted customers, challenged and rewarded employees, and improved its local community in truly meaningful ways” says Art Papas, Founder and CEO of Bullhorn. Art has now successfully led the company through 15 years of consecutive growth guided by that mission to deliver an incredible customer experience.
