Yala featured in Sunday Times!
As a new entrant to the recruitment industry in 2018, we had grown the business from two to 15 staff in 18 months, but were severely impacted by Covid. Our revenue dropped by 90 per cent in Q2 of 2020.
Our customers were primarily in the construction and life sciences sectors. Looking at new ways to connect during the pandemic, we hosted our first webinar on employee resilience, and produced a whitepaper to help employers to build and identify this quality in employees. We also conducted a survey and shared our findings in a report – “Recruitment during Covid and Trends for 2021” – in partnership with Enterprise Ireland and Trinity College.
