Yesterday was a great day of sharing and collaboration between recruiters at the Toronto Recruiter Conference. The guest speakers have been outstanding along with the networking and handshaking amongst colleagues.
Over the past decades that I have been in the recruitment industry, I have rarely seen live regular recruiter networking events in the Canadian marketplace.
Our industry is worth over $15 Billion Dollars in Canada but is yet still highly fragmented with many firms operating with less then 5 employees and without collaboration. There are over 1,600 agencies and 9,000 recruiters in total across Canada
This is the time to encourage all recruiters across Canada to come together more often and bring thought leadership to this fast growing industry.
As we all know, the word TEAM stands for Together Everybody Achieves More.
