Future-Proofing Your Growth Through Diversification

If the pandemic and recent economic uncertainty have taught us anything, it’s that firms that readily adapt to challenges are most likely to win out over the competition. A key source of growth for many staffing firms has been diversifying their service offerings, including pivoting or opening new verticals to incorporate SOW, RPO, or Direct Sourcing models into their business. While many firms have taken advantage of the recent staffing industry acceleration, this rapid growth won’t last forever. How can you future-proof your business to ensure you continue to grow and succeed over your competitors? In this session, you’ll hear from a panel of industry leaders on how they’ve approached diversification in their own businesses and what other firms should be thinking about as they consider diversification as a growth strategy.
