The war for talent is raving, also in Belgium, and large corporations are investing a lot to attract Talent.
Where does that leave the SME?
Recent publications show that almost 40% of SMEs are having increasing difficulties recruiting the right persons for their open positions. And this situation is not getting better, especially given that at least 1/3 of small- and medium sized businesses in Belgium is planning to recruit in the coming three months.

Thanks to our many years of experience and proactive recruitment approach we are able to help such companies in reaching those candidates that they were not able to identify and get in touch with themselves.
