Excellent content, engaging, and absolutely well worth the time…

This workshop is a must for any agency HR team struggling with recruitment. Excellent content, engaging, and absolutely well worth the time and nominal registration fee. We were so excited that we implemented one of the strategies prior to the end of the workshop!
