Embrace change to deal with a more fragmented marketplace

Recruitment agency Ignite says businesses need to embrace change this year, as they face a fragmented marketplace where job candidates are using different platforms to find work and where people are looking for non-traditional employment.

Chief executive Julian Sallabank says growing trends include a greater demand for part-time work, which has made Australia a more competitive economy, with many skilled workers choosing reduced hours so they can spend more time with family or pursue hobbies.
