Driving recruitment success through strategic procurement

I believe that there are many similarities between HR and procurement. Whilst HR manage and procure people within an organisation, procurement deal with the multifaceted layers of people involved in the supply chain, amongst these layers should be a procured compliant route to market to enable successful recruitment to take place within an organisation.
