"Hiring managers will need to understand the flow of their talent pipeline, knowing why people move and what drives this movement of talent around the globe," he noted.
It comes after Taryn Grossman, senior recruiter at Siemens Energy Sector, told the Recruiter that recruitment agencies help to play a key role in finding candidates in niche skill areas, subsequently gaining those individuals employment.
