Why a staffing president & COO attends every year
Jason Leverant is president and COO of AtWork Group, a staffing firm headquartered in Knoxville, TN. For Jason, attending Staffing World with a group of team members each year is a given. “Staffing World gives me a competitive advantage over those who don’t attend,” Jason explains. Here are four things he says you’ll miss if you’re not there.
1. High-value information
“As a staffing executive, attending this event is phenomenal,” says Jason. “The content is worth its weight in gold. The keynotes are tremendous, as are the breakouts and roundtables. My skills always need to be honed. I attend many sessions just to see what I will pick up.”
“You can bring 25 people to this event for the same cost as past years. There’s no reason you shouldn’t have your entire team there.”
2. Powerful connections
While the high-value content is great, it’s not Jason’s No. 1 reason to attend. “For me it’s the networking and engagement with other staffing professionals. There are very few events where you have so many people going through the same challenges as you are on a daily basis.”
3. Business advantage
Jason also attends to gain a leg up on the competition. “Many times, I engage with people in the industry who aren’t ASA members, and they just don’t have a grasp of the landscape they’re working in. We’re so much further ahead. We’re addressing issues facing the industry on the cutting edge, and we’re better for it.”
4. Face time with experts
“Whatever it costs, we attend,” he explains. “It’s unbelievable the value you get for your registration fee. If we want to hire a big consultant, just to get them on the phone is a few thousand bucks. At Staffing World, you get dedicated time with these experts—during their sessions and afterwards. You can tap that brain power and take advantage of it.”
Regarding the low cost of the 2020 virtual event, Jason suggests, “You can bring 25 people to this event for the same cost as past years. There’s no reason you shouldn’t have your entire team there.”
