NEW YORK, May 8, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

HR tech firm, Cappfinity is working with New York Times best-selling author and 
workplace expert, Lindsey Pollak on a ground-breaking global research project 
exploring the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the graduating class of 2020 
and the future of graduate hiring.  

Based on expert opinion from talent acquisition leaders in the UK, US and APAC 
region, 2020 Strong will look at how the global pandemic is causing businesses 
to reshape their approach to graduate hiring, including shifts in on-campus 
recruiting and virtual hiring and investigating the impact on social mobility 
and diversity.

Cappfinity will be sharing their findings with employers of entry-level talent 
and university career services professionals through a range of digital content 
including a webinar series. 

The company also plans to support the Class of 2020 and other current college
