Today, Bullhorn launched its annual survey of global recruiting professionals. Each year, we ask pros like you to share what’s most important to agencies like yours in the year ahead. The findings will highlight how your peers are viewing the industry, what they say their top priorities and challenges are for 2019, and how they’re thinking about hot topics shaping the future of recruitment.

Take a few minutes (less than 10) to share your insights and when the findings are released in early 2019, you’ll be among the first to see them and discover how your insights compare with others in your industry. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win an Amazon gift card!

Some of the questions we’ll look to answer for the year ahead:

  • What are the top priorities and challenges agencies say they’ll face in 2019? 
  • Has the growth of online recruiting platforms made recruiting for sought-after roles easier or harder?
  • What’s the primary growth strategy recruitment agencies will tap into over the next 3-5 years?
  • What are the big ideas agencies need to pay attention to in the year ahead? 


We’ll use your responses to surface some of the most significant insights and trends for the coming year so you can see what agencies like yours are focusing in 2019, global and local trends to be aware of, opportunities your agency can leverage to grow your business, and more.
