Our Members are creative, resourceful and have become accustomed to wearing LOTS of hats in their day-to-day jobs. With multi-tasking becoming the norm of our work culture, our Members have likely found themselves taking on countless projects outside of their specialized area–and we commend them for their willingness to go above and beyond! Whether a one-man show that manages both OFCCP compliance and recruitment functions or working as a large team, we’re proud of our Members’ accomplishments and want to celebrate!

With that said, we will be celebrating Member Appreciation Week from October 29 – November 2! Check out the agenda below to see what exciting things we have in store!
