Art Papas Keynote

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.
