Success for Staffing in the New Post COVID-19 World | Voor flexsucces in de nieuwe post-corona wereld
Track: Benelux Regional Outlook (Dutch)

The Benelux recruitment industry had already been confronted with big challenges even before the COVID-19 crisis hit; the four big waves of the 4th Industrial Revolution: demographics, deglobalisation, sustainability and digitisation. Lockdown then saw the industry shrink by an unprecedented 17%. COVID-19 may have put the world temporarily on pause, but it now turbo-charges a new future. The expectation is that companies, business models, jobs, and professions will rapidly disappear, change, or appear. In this session we will look at concrete trends and possibilities and what the next steps are for the recruitment industry. You will leave better prepared for the next two years and with new insight into a world of possibility.

De flexbranche werd voor de corona-crisis al met grote uitdagingen geconfronteerd, en kromp vervolgens vanwege de lockdown met een niet eerder vertoonde 17%. Als in 2021 de economie weer gaat groeien, zal bij werkgevers, zoals gebruikelijk bij herstel, een sterke flexvraag naar uitzend- en detacheringskrachten ontstaan. Maar de WAB heeft flexwerk duurder gemaakt, met mogelijk juist een drukkend effect op de flexvraag. En dan hebben we nog de 4 grote golven van de 4e Industriële Revolutie: demografie, deglobalisering, duurzaamheid en digitalisering. Hun impact zal enorm zijn: bedrijven, businessmodellen, banen en beroepen gaan in een hoog tempo verdwijnen, veranderen of verschijnen.

Corona heeft de wereld even in pauzestand gezet, maar zet nu de turbo op een nieuwe toekomst. In deze breakout-sessie gaan we op zoek naar de concrete trends én mogelijkheden en eerste stappen voor uitzend- en detacheringsbureaus.

In this presentation, you will receive a comprehensive market overview of customer and provider groups as well as forecasts and information on which topics are currently affecting HR service companies!
