  • 2021: The Year of the Human Cloud

    Oct 07, 2020, by Nikki Edwards

      Quarterly financial reports for 2020 (April onwards) from recruitment organizations show that in a COVID-19 world, temporary hiring is more resilient than permanent hiring, faring on average about 10-30% better (albeit both types of hiring are seeing negative growth overall).
