As global economies recover from the impact of the pandemic, employers find themselves navigating new challenges recruiting talent amid the Great Rehire. With job openings at an all-time high, diversity and inclusion continuing to drive workplace transformation and an increased need for agile workforce solutions, it has never been more important for talent acquisition leaders to remain on top of current trends.

At PeopleScout, we keep a keen eye on key talent trends emerging across RPO, MSP, and Total Workforce Solutions as the industry shifts to keep up with new challenges. We are seeing an increased focus on flexibility as hybrid and project-based models take center stage. And, as organizations look to future-proof their workforces, the move to total talent has been accelerated, with technology solutions at the helm.

We are also closely following the societal shifts impacting candidates, employers and the workforce at large. We applaud the increasing priority placed on diversity, equity and inclusion as employers seek insight and expertise on best practices, training and metrics to fulfill their DE&I goals.

This issue of NEXT provides insights into these essential topics and more to help leaders as they continue ramping up hiring in response to the pandemic recovery.
