While we witnessed New Zealand doing it in style and India missing it by a mark, Belong did so at its annual Outbound All Stars Awards.

The Outbound All Stars Awards are to cherish and shine a spotlight on the Talent Acquisition and Recruiters’ community, ensuring exceptional candidate experience, strong employer brand, and more tangible benefits to their organizations.
Once, every year, we decide to celebrate the recruiters all over India for their contribution. It is not just to honor their efforts but also to celebrate their quest to overhaul the recruitment industry and make it more data and technology driven.

A quick look at Google Books Ngram Viewer shows the number of times the word recruiter has been mentioned in books right from 1800 all the way up to 2008.
