Welcome to Recruiter Roundup, a monthly look at the most exciting recruiting and HR industry news.
The optimism we saw in last month’s roundup shows no signs of slowing down. Hunt Scanlon reports that more and more recruiting firms are creating more durable revenue streams with higher margins by branching out into digital platforms. Meanwhile, a string of high-value mergers and acquisitions — including the combination of Ultimate Software and Kronos Incorporated into a single $22 billion conglomerate — shows ongoing levels of robust activity in a thriving industry.
