The Olympics of the recruitment industry kicked off this
week in the form of the 2012 CIETT World
Employment Conference. As we speak, over 300 recruitment
professionals from 34 different nations are meeting at the event,
held at London's Landmark Hotel, to discuss the latest and future
trends in the world of jobs.
CIETT 2012, Landmark Hotel,
Our client, the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC)
joins speakers such as Dr Lynda Gratton, journalist and author
Matthew Syed, as well as the TUC's general secretary Brendan
Barber, to provide insights into the global employment market and
how British businesses can get out of the recession.
Having over 20 world class speakers under one roof brings about
some really interesting points about flexible working and job
creation, but also some heated debate - on the one hand Kevin
Green, CEO of the REC, says that part-time work keeps people in
employment and should not be thought of as second class, whereas
the TUC argues that it creates underemployment.
From our work with various clients, including the REC, youth
unemployment also continues to be a hot topic and it's going to be
particularly interesting to see how the issue is being addressed in
different countries. Does every country have the same obstacles or
are some countries doing better than others to help young people
find jobs? Maybe we can learn from them; maybe they can learn from
Either way, quality recruitment is going to be vital to
supporting our economic recovery, which is why I think this kind of
big international event is so important right now.
