American Staffing Association https://americanstaffing.net Fri, 17 Jan 2020 15:55:56 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Protect Your Firm Against Ransomware and Cyber Attacks https://americanstaffing.net/webinars/protect-your-firm-against-ransomware-and-cyber-attacks/ Thu, 09 Jan 2020 14:52:24 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?post_type=webinar&p=142792 Who Should Attend

Staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry professionals

Highlights

Ransomware can cause tremendous disruptions to business operations and lead to significant data and financial loss. Cybersecurity poses a practical minefield for staffing firms: Not only must firms defend against constantly evolving technologies and cyber attacks, they must also be prepared—before a breach occurs—to mitigate potential criminal, civil, and regulatory damages.

During this webinar, attorneys from Fox Rothschild LLP will explain the liabilities companies can face as the result of a security breach and discuss what you can do to protect your firm against cyber attacks.

During this webinar, attendees will learn about

  • What methods of attack criminals use, and where companies are most vulnerable
  • How to bolster their company’s security culture
  • What phishing and ransomware attack trends to watch out for

Safety is always a challenge for the staffing industry. Staffing agencies must ensure that they are sending temporary workers to safe workplaces—and that host employers treat temporary workers like any other workers when it comes to safety, health conditions, and protections.

Join Mark Lies II, partner with Seyfarth Shaw, for this three-part webinar series. He will share insights and best practices on keeping your firm compliant and your temporary workers safe.

During this webinar, attendees will learn about

  • Occupational safety and health rules and regulations under both federal and state law
  • What the difference is between “general awareness” safety training and “host employer” safety training
  • How to navigate the rules, employer responsibilities, and challenges of job site-specific safety training

Staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry professionals

Highlights

You spend a great deal of time and effort to ensure that every employee you place is qualified and safe. Of course, hiring and placement decisions are not risk-free—and the steps you take to reduce these risks could carry their own risk if you don’t follow the law when researching and hiring candidates.

During this webinar, Les Rosen of Employment Screening Resources will discuss the issues that all employers need to be concerned with—including the effective use of social media for hiring, legal and proper use of criminal record searches, compliance with “ban-the-box” laws, and avoiding technical violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act to forestall FCRA class action lawsuits.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • What advantages there are, and potential risks, to using online searches and social media to source candidates
  • Which issues staffing professionals may face when performing background checks on employees
  • How to review and audit due diligence practices so their firm stays compliant with the law
  • Top issues surrounding international background checks

She also will discuss how to use targeted metrics to coach recruiters and improve their performance.

Traditional MSP Models Are Losing Relevancy—How You Can Step In and Fill the Gap https://americanstaffing.net/webinars/traditional-msp-models-are-losing-relevancy/ Wed, 30 Oct 2019 20:27:06 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?post_type=webinar&p=134525 Who Should Attend

Staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry professionals

Highlights

Quality, cost, and speed are still the name of the game for next generation contingent workforce management (CWM) models, but the game has changed. Today, clients want a multitalent supply chain strategy with several talent pipelines—not requisition management. They want advanced analytics and dynamic, real-time “program health checks”—not quarterly business reviews and a service model that leverages multiple technology options to widen the talent net. And the mid-market sector, where managed service providers don’t work, is the fastest-growing segment for CWM solutions.

Small to midsize staffing firms have a unique advantage to exploit: agility, relationships, and trusted adviser status can provide an entry point to taking more market share and adding more value. If you are looking for a way to provide advanced talent supply chain solutions and create new revenue streams, this presentation will help you get there.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • Which different types of technology options they can add immediately to their solutions at little to no cost
  • How to strategically leverage advanced data and analytics to increase their value to their clients
  • How to build the service models to take their game to the next level
