The American Staffing Association’s annual event, Staffing World, is just ahead! The conference will take place in Chicago from October 24-26 and is the largest, most comprehensive convention and expo in the staffing, recruiting and workforce solutions industry.
With over 40 sessions, round tables, presentations, networking and evening events and an exhibitor’s expo (where Avionté will be hangin’), there will be plenty to do at this year’s ASA Staffing World event!
It can be easy to get bogged down by the agenda and miss out on sessions and events that you’ll regret having missed afterwards.
So, we have prepared your list of “can’t miss” sessions and events, so you are fully prepared to make the most of Staffing World 2017.
