Personnel Today -- Recruitment agencies are faced with an uncertain future after HR directors warned they were unlikely to use them as much,if at all when the economy recovers. A survey of 117 senior in-house recruitment professionals by hiring firm Oakleaf found that nearly 70% believed that the recession would have a lasting negative effect on the need to use recruitment firms. Barely one-third felt that smaller, boutique recruitment firms would grow to help fill specialist needs.
