January 27, 2023

All For A Thriving Recruiter Community

At Find Recruiter, we continuously monitor the latest news within the recruitment industry. And we are always excited when there are new firms in town because it’s great news for employers! As each recruiter/agency has their own talent connections, more recruiters gives employers access to a larger network of talents.

In Q3 2020, we saw 13 new recruitment firms in Hong Kong and they were all boutique sized (employing less than 10 recruitment experts). Recruitment firms going boutique is a trend to watch for. Services of boutique recruitment firms tend to be more bespoke which is crucial for businesses today where culture fit and team dynamics are top priorities. Without further ado, here they are:

1. Mavence Group

Promotion for a better transparency in recruitment industry

We believe that transparency is of utmost importance to promote a healthy future for the recruitment industry. Digitalisation is one of the keys that helps us to achieve that. It helps employers make more informed decisions on the choices of recruiters. It also helps to eliminate bad apples in the industry who tend to work in the dark. As our research shows, a lot of recruitment firms are lacking online prominence, and it points to one thing: A lot more work is definitely required to promote online presence for them.

Human Resources, we have a problem: Your Time-to-Fill is longer than EVER.

47 days – that’s the time it takes for most businesses today to fill a job opening. Just think about that for a moment. It takes more time for businesses to make a single hire than it takes NASA to send astronauts 85 million km away to Mercury or for Hollywood to shoot an entire movie.
