Podcast: Recruitment in the 21st Century

Posted on: April 3rd, 2020

Leon Deakin, head of our Technology sector and Employment partner recently took part in Platinum Publishing’s influencer forum to discuss the ways in which the recruitment landscape is changing.

Long gone are the days of the steady 9 to 5 – it’s becoming more important than ever that the workplace of the future is adapting to be more agile to help attract new talent.

In the current climate, many companies have had to adapt to remote working, create flexible working patterns and also consider how the gig economy, worker status, and business immigration might affect their current and future workforce.

Alongside five other recruitment experts, Leon and the group look to answer:

  • How does technology affect the decision making process?
  • Should a potential employee be judged on their social media posts?
  • How is the legal profession keeping up with the changing workplace?
  • What steps are businesses taking to attract and retain the best talent?
