With the DirectEmployers 2013 Annual Meeting & Conference (DEAM13) fast approaching, the excitement continues to build around the office! We’re ready to head to the beautiful shores of San Diego for two and a half days of learning, networking, and, of course, fun. This year’s agenda features four comprehensive tracks: Leadership, Compliance, Recruiting, and Technology. Since we already gave you a sneak peek into the compliance track, we thought we’d move on to recruiting. With great topics and thought provoking sessions lined up, this will be a track you won’t want to miss!
