About the Event

Join us on Thursday 24th June 2021 for a timely review of M&A trends and drivers for the first half of 2021 with analysis of deals and forecasts for the rest of the year from a panel of leading industry advisers.

Record levels of under-deployed private equity, the doubling of cash reserves in listed Human Capital companies over the last year, and anticipated changes to Capital Gains Tax in six months have all contributed to a booming M&A landscape for Recruitment and HR Tech. Recruitment companies that have optimised talent tech to offer a wider range of services – from candidate training to Statement of Work – have best adapted to the post-pandemic marketplace and enhanced their equity value. Simultaneously, the accelerated adoption of technology by employers and digital transformation of recruiters has driven a boom in HR and RecTech sales and M&A.

Speakers & Topics

Our panel of expert advisers will present an update on the M&A landscape for the Recruitment and HR Tech sector with insights on who is buying and investing, what they are looking for, what is likely to sustain investor interest and how to improve equity value throughout 2021.
