Opening Keynote: Meet the Moment with Art Papas, Founder and CEO, Bullhorn

The world of work has fundamentally changed. New business models have gained traction, and digital transformation, already in motion before the pandemic, is accelerating. Expectations of teams, candidates, and clients have evolved. For recruitment agencies, the time is now, the solution is here, and it’s time to act. This is the moment to grow and transform your business. 

In this year’s Engage Boston 2022 opening keynote address, Bullhorn CEO Art Papas will explore why it’s vital to meet this moment and how to transform your business to meet — or exceed — the needs of your teams, talent, and clients.

Bullhorn’s annual GRID survey revealed that 4,000 global recruitment agencies cite the talent shortage as their top challenge and talent acquisition as their top priority in 2022. 90% of talent wish the process of finding jobs through recruitment agencies was more streamlined. What will separate winning agencies from the competition? The Combination of transformative technology and the human touch.

Art will discuss how recruitment agencies can take advantage of this opportunity and navigate the obstacles of a historic talent shortage, evolving candidate expectations, and fierce competition.
