It’s no secret that we love marketing for the staffing industry. There’s something about the fact that staffing firms and recruiters are literally changing the course of people’s lives that inspires us. We love tapping into those audiences – the wide variety of clients and candidates – to help firms engage them more effectively.
That’s why we’re excited for the upcoming Midwest Staffing Conference on May 22-23 in Schaumburg, Illinois. This annual event, co-sponsored by the Illinois Search and Staffing Association (ISSA) and the Wisconsin Association of Staffing Services (WASS), brings in renowned speakers and industry thought leaders to share insights and advice on all aspects of the staffing world.
The first day of the event, the “Power Recruiting Clinic,” features three dynamic speakers and roundtable discussions and will provide an opportunity to dive deep into recruiting strategies and industry trends. The day concludes with a Launch Party, where attendees are invited to network and enjoy the vast array of 90 craft beers on tap (we’ll be there! Will you?).
The second day is the core of the Midwest Staffing Conference, opening with a keynote from author and leader Scott Wintrip. The day is filled with many workshops hosted by industry experts. Conference participants will also have an opportunity to browse sponsor exhibits and network during lunch and break sessions. Once again, the day ends with a festive party, featuring raffles and games.
We’re particularly looking forward to this year’s event because echogravity has two of its own team members leading workshops at the conference on Thursday, May 23rd. Our co-founder and partner Kevin O’Brien is hosting a conversation at 11am about candidate ghosting, a common issue many staffing firms are currently facing. At 3pm, John Skoutelas, Content Marketing Manager at echogravity, is leading “Building Your Persona in the Marketplace: Making a Mark as a Young Staffing Professional.”
We look forward to seeing you there!
