Penn Foster is thrilled to be participating in this year's American Staffing Association Staffing World Conference next week (October 16-18) at the Gaylord National Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. As the largest staffing and recruiting conference in the US, Staffing World welcomes over one thousand attendees annually. As we near this year's event, we are looking forward to having the opportunity to meet with so many leaders and discuss the key trends and challenges in the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry.
Among the conference highlights are the countless workshops and panels featuring key industry players, including the "Innovation & Education: A Partnership to Close the Skills Gap" panel on Tuesday, October 16th from 4:15-5:30 PM. Moderated by Penn Foster CEO Frank Britt, the panel will center on how education programs can help associates advance into hard to fill jobs, with insights from EmployBridge and Alside leaders.
EmployBridge, the largest industrial staffing firm in North America, has recently been recognized by the American Staffing Association in their Elevate and Genius Awards fortheir Better WorkLife Academy and career mobile app. EmployBridge's Better WorkLife Academy, powered by Penn Foster, offers free online training to associates which allows them to fill clients' open positions and increase employee retention " thus helping the associates, the clients, and the staffing company.
