Millennials, Messaging, and Recruiting: Opportunity, or Risk?
Location: Back Bay D
The rise of messaging and social media in recruiting, particularly amongst Millennials, presents opportunities as well as risks. The good news: the many forms of messaging channels preferred by Millennials elicit rapid responses, build relationships, and speed job placements. The bad news: few if any of these conversations are captured inside of your ATS. Further, the resulting relationships are tied to your staffs’ personal smartphones – yes, the same staff that churns way too frequently. Simon Cleaver, CEO of CloudCall, will discuss the implications for recruitment and staffing, and present alternatives for finding business advantages while improving the candidate experience.

Art Papas Keynote
Location: Grand Ballroom
The staffing industry is comprised of an extraordinary group of people worthy of being celebrated, but the outside perception is somewhat different. The term “staffing” doesn’t speak to the value of an industry that means and does so much. The staffing industry succeeds where society currently falls short - at building connections, maintaining empathy, facilitating trust. Engagement, what recruiters do best, is the foundation of trust, and trust is a necessity in achieving the strongest possible relationships - with customers and talent - that subsequently lead to scalability and business growth. But building trust isn’t the endgame: as an industry, we also need to deliver results and value. This starts with appreciating what we as recruiting professionals do, and to amplify our awareness to the rest of the world. Join Bullhorn CEO Art Papas for an inspirational and insightful look at where we are today as an industry, where we’re going, and why it’s so important to be human as we journey forward.

The New Business Imperative: The Training, Retraining, and Upskilling of the American workforce
Location: Back Bay C
BLS data indicate there are currently more than 6 million job openings that employers cannot fill. According to a recent McKinsey survey, a majority of executives believe that investing in the retraining and “upskilling” of U.S. workers is an urgent business priority—and they also believe that this is an issue where corporations, not governments, must take the lead. The American Staffing Association board of directors agrees and ASA is working to ensure that industry members are on the front lines of creating and supporting work-based learning programs to train, retrain, and upskill American workers. In this session, we will present case studies of what leading staffing firms are doing on their own and in partnerships with clients, educational organizations, and the government to address and close the growing talent gap. You will come away with some specific ideas about programs that will enhance your firm’s value proposition with candidates, employees, and clients.

Breaking Through: Leadership Disciplines of Top Performing Staffing Firms
Location: Back Bay A & B
There are more than 19,000 staffing firms in the US, but fewer than 700 generate over $25 million in revenue and only 140 have achieved the industry heights of building a $100 million business. What is it about those firms that have grown on their own from start up to the top echelons of the industry? How do they rise above the norm and “break through” the barriers to growth? In this session, Barry Asin shares insights and data surrounding the disciplines in common among the exceptional few staffing firms who have gone from startup to standout and built industry-leading businesses.

Pulse Check: How to Effectively Engage Candidates in Healthcare - Panel
Location: Back Bay D
Healthcare is a perpetually red-hot, high-growth sector within staffing, but it remains rife with operational and talent engagement challenges due to the reality that when it comes to placing a travel nurse or locum tenens physician, “getting it right” actually can be a matter of life or death. Naturally, the talent pools are much smaller, the requirements much higher, and the opportunities highly appealing. Bullhorn’s Gretchen Keefner will assemble a panel of healthcare staffing leaders to speak frankly about the candidate engagement challenges that keep them up at night, strategies for overcoming them, and where they see the market headed in light of potential legislative changes.

Diversity and Inclusion: Thinking Beyond the Obvious
Location: Back Bay C
“Diversity and Inclusion” is so bandied about that it’s already become a somewhat tired acronym - D&I. But what do D&I initiatives really accomplish? Prioritizing diversity is about more than checking boxes, or satisfying stakeholders. It’s about building a better, more successful business - a business that solves bigger problems more effectively, and makes more money. Diversity is the means by which you can achieve that, and the first step is to abandon the stereotypes and obvious tactics and start thinking critically about inclusion. Jackye Clayton, formerly the editor of RecruitingDaily, and current director of customer success at HiringSolved, will take a humorous but helpful look at where D&I programs often fall short and how you can think beyond the obvious to turn diverse talent into your greatest business asset.

How, as leaders, do we navigate the social and cultural challenges that affect our world, our homes, and our businesses? This panel, led by Bullhorn’s Vinda Souza, will inspire and educate you with strategies from leaders who have faced or are helping people navigate adversity including gender and racial biases, sexual harassment, economic disenfranchisement, age bias, and much more.

Relationships Above All Else: Creating a Culture that Builds Long-Term Trust
Location: Back Bay D
There is absolutely no challenge more often cited in the staffing industry than the skills shortage. But what if this skills shortage doesn’t really exist? Cindy Pasky, Founder, President, and CEO of Strategic Staffing Solutions, believes that there really isn’t a skills shortage if you know where to look, but that requires asking yourself the hard questions: do you have inherent biases that you need to overcome? Are you nurturing a corporate and candidate culture that appeals to marginalized but qualified talent pools such as veterans, returning mothers, and the LGBT community? Cindy will discuss how Strategic Staffing Solutions’ unique and thriving culture has helped the company attract a huge and loyal roster of consultants, how they leverage technology to make their recruiters even more human and effective at their jobs, and speak about the figurative, and literal, flags they fly as a business.

Where Did All the Talent Go? Understanding the Gig Economy and the Modern Contingent Workforce - Panel
Location: Back Bay C
Nearly a third of the global workforce can be defined as “gig workers,” and the move toward flexible free agents and shift work has had a transformative effect on labor markets across the world. But how does the “gig economy” fundamentally different from contingent workforce management as a practice area that has existed for half a century? What are the limitations inherent to an overreliance on technological platforms as opposed to human judgment and evaluation - if any? It’s time to stop pretending “gig” is something new and start asking the tough questions on how it affects contingent staffing firms in the now.

The Real Impact of Digitization and Artificial Intelligence on Staffing - Panel
Location: Back Bay C
We’re well beyond asking the question, “will artificial intelligence have an impact on staffing?” Of course it will. Automation - the foundation of basic precursor to AI - is ubiquitous, and the promise of natural language processing, the prolific use of chatbots in candidate engagement, and the rise of intelligent voice-activated assistants cast a wide shadow on the human workforce industry. But where does a machine’s potential end and a human’s potential really begin? And what are the bottom-line impacts to your business when artificial intelligence ceases to exist in the future and starts affecting your operations today?
