Following prolonged work-from-home measures and sudden job loss for record numbers of professionals, industries across the world are adapting to new ways of working by uncovering new ways to sustain, grow, and innovate.

While a digital pivot was necessary for many businesses to survive, some are still finding it challenging to source long-term, reliable talent. Businesses also feel the strain of not finding talent quickly enough to meet increasing demands on their output.
