It was great fun as we gave an overview of the latest recruitment trends in Singapore, as well as some of the common pitfalls to avoid in job ad postings - Many of the HR personnel participated actively in our Q&A session, during which the participants thought hard about the various common phrases seen in job advertisements and whether these phrases were actually aligned with the Fair Consideration Framework and Tripartite Guidelines of Fair Employment. 

During the talk, SMEs business owners and HR teams also took home some key talent recruitment strategies that they can easily apply to reach out to more jobseekers easily through using StaffOnDemand.
