Get Help Bridging the Skills Gap at Staffing World® 2014

Staffing World is the largest, most comprehensive convention and expo in the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry. This year’s event takes place Oct. 13–15 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in metro Washington, DC.

Staffing and recruiting professionals say they are concerned about the effect of the skills gap and the resulting difficulty in finding qualified entry-level candidates, so this year’s event will include sessions devoted to devising solutions for this growing problem:
  • “Make the Impossible Possible—The Art of Leadership”—Bill Strickland, president and chief executive officer of Manchester Bidwell Corp., will urge staffing industry leaders to join the industry’s commitment to minimizing the skills gap during his opening keynote address.
  • “How to Handle Those Hard-to-Fill Positions”—A panel of staffing industry leaders will focus on real-world practical solutions for the marketplace and discuss ways to address skills gap challenges with clients and candidates.
Additionally, you can focus on the particular questions that concern you during the Collaborative Learning Symposium, new this year at Staffing World. The Trending Insights session will feature video interviews with ASA members on pressing industry topics that will prompt small group discussions among participants on questions such as what companies are doing to address the skills gap in your region.

Come to Staffing World for tips and tactics on bridging the skills gap. Get more information and register online at
