Ensure your spot at this important industry event, hosted by the ASA Virginia Council and designed specifically for staffing professionals doing business in Virginia. The ASA Virginia Staffing Symposium will convene national and local industry leaders for strategic discussions and timely presentations during this valuable half-day event.
Toby Malara of ASA will open with a discussion focused on the new administration and Congress. What kinds of policy changes can the administration make on its own? What role will Congress play? And how can staffing companies prepare for what could transpire? Malara will provide scenarios and answer questions.
While you enjoy lunch, veteran industry educator and author Scott Wintrip will share his well-established recruiting best practices to hire better and faster.
Next, Diane Angel of CareerBuilder will provide insights from the perspective of today’s job seekers and discuss strategies for more effectively communicating and engaging with candidates.
Finally, get valuable information regarding temporary worker safety from Stan Dutko Jr., OSHA’s area director based in Norfolk, VA, and Todd Dreby, regional safety manager, risk management, for Randstad North America. Using a case study, Dutko and Dreby will provide insights focused on helping staffing firms and host employers better understand OSHA Form 300, used to record work-related injuries and illnesses. This session also will introduce the Safety Standard of Excellence program, designed by ASA and the National Safety Council specifically for staffing firms.
