News: Get the Right Recruiters in 46 European Countries

Avollon now covers more functions and industries than any other recruitment solution in Europe

Avollon has strengthened its foothold in Europe by onboarding more leading recruitment firms, adding its reach to more than 2.000 search executives and recruiters across Europe. Making it one of the most comprehensive recruiting solutions for local and global companies recruiting top talent on all levels in the market.

Today Avollon announced the platform now covers more recruiting expertise within geographies, functions and industries than ever before in Europe. This manifests Avollon’s position as a natural one stop for better recruiting services for companies seeking top talent.

Henning von Borcke, COO of Avollon, says; “Europe has a large, diversified talent pool, but also the highest employee retainment rates in the world. This makes it a great, but complex and low-transparent recruitment market for many companies. Avollon’s contribution is to structure data and insight so that clients can hire the right recruiters when needed”.

The European economy comprises more than 740 million people in 46 different countries. The European Union alone is the second largest economy in the world in nominal terms and according to purchasing power, represents 22% of the global economy. To this day, the EU upholds its position as one of the most stable economic regions worldwide, due to an internal market of mixed economies based on free market and advanced social models.

The European Union is the largest exporter in the world and the largest importer of goods and services. Many European companies rank among the world’s largest companies in terms of turnover, profit, market share, number of employees or other major indicators. A considerable number of EU-based companies are ranked among the world’s top-ten within their sector of activity.

However, there have been dark clouds on the European horizon the past years. Brexit, economic slowdown in the Eurozone and the risk of full-blown trade wars can all be identified as recurring themes that are posing persistent challenges for Europe.

However, Europe is confirming its role as an important global talent hub showcasing 9 out of the 10 top countries in the 2018 IMD World Talent Ranking. Dipping into these talent pools has become increasingly important to maintain and encourage growth. Considering 6 of 10 of the best startup cities in the world are in the EU, promises a bright future for the continent.

Cato Backer, CEO of Avollon, says; “Europe is continuing to adapt to new technology to improve hiring outcomes, and the growth of economies is always a result of increasing demand for and supply of talent. Avollon’s vision is to provide better leadership for all companies on all levels by allocating the right search executives and recruiters to every assignment when hiring. This is a huge challenge in every economy; in particular across borders”.
