Workforce solutions and Remote Working


The rise in popularity of hybrid and remote working practices, has subsequently led to a rise in technology-driven M&A activity in the workforce solutions sector and is proving highly profitable for owners of staffing companies.

It has become clear that strategic buyers, investors and private equity firms across the globe maintain a strong interest in the IT staffing market.

This is especially so due to the current talent shortage across cybersecurity, multi-cloud services, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence (AI), with many IT staffing and recruitment companies spotting a growing demand for talent development solutions.

Workforce Solutions and Digital Transformation


As digital transformation continues to affect all industries, re-skilling and training of the workforce looks to be a necessity in the rapidly evolving recruitment, staffing and talent markets.

The increasing rate of digital transformation on an international scale, has disrupted traditional staffing and talent markets across the globe, with many workforce solutions companies now automating many of their processes.
