ALAN WARD, AUCKLAND UNIVERSITY; KEITH MUIRHEAD, AIR NEW ZEALAND & VICTORIA HAYWARD, BANK OF NEW ZEALAND
Inhouse teams and RPOs now dominate recruitment within major corporate and public sector organisations, and many recruitment centres and talent teams are involved in market mapping, succession planning, workforce development, onboarding and internal mobility programmes, thereby reducing the reliance on traditional agency services. What role, then, is left for recruitment agencies? How has the typical agency model kept up with these changes, can it provide strategic solutions to major organisations, or is it about to become irrelevant outside the SME market?

These and many other questions about the implications of shifting dynamics will be answered by our panellists, who are local leaders of in-house recruitment and talent teams. They will reveal how their models currently supply their in-house needs and share their thoughts about the future of external staffing service providers.
