Are You Who You Say You Are?
Presented by Chris Nichols, Business Development Manager, endevis Recruiting | Retention

Companies often get lost in “systems”. We are always looking for the best or fastest method of getting work done. We often lose track of how that looks to our most valuable potential commodity, our employees. When we consider our Employer Brand, we must look at our process from application to exit interview. Our retention efforts begin the moment a potential candidate arrives on our website. How we engage with our employees should be the same way we expect our staff to interact with our patients & customers, with care and understanding.

This presentation explores how you can evaluate your department to determine if your company is supporting its talent acquisition and retention to maximum potential

  1. This presentation will enhance your ability to analyze your candidate experience through a detailed look at progressive solutions and analysis techniques.
  2. The onboarding experience for many new employees is the difference between a 2-year and 10-year tenure.  The presentation examines how onboarding can be revolutionized at the local level with just a few easy steps.
  3. Engagement and retention are vital in an everchanging job market where Millennials desire to feel an emotional connection to their employer.  The presentation takes look at easy ways to implement new partnerships to enhance opportunities for employees and build life-long brand champions.  

Schedule: Doors open at 7:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.

Background Screening: What You Don't Know Can Hurt Your Organization
Presented by Debra Keller, VP of Compliance, FCRA Advanced

In today's litigious environment, performing background checks is more important than ever. But not understanding what makes a background check comprehensive and compliant can render them useless—and dangerous. Your challenge has been to understand the ever-changing regulations regarding the use of criminal records with no education provided about background screening. This session will cover reports, data accuracy and sources, adverse action, and many hot legal compliance issues—it is a must-attend for all talent management and compliance professionals.

Attendees will learn:

  • The real reasons an organization should perform employee background checks and the components of a truly comprehensive background check—what you need and what you don't (this covers negligent hiring liability).
  • How to avoid common compliance problems and what the hot areas are for litigation, including applicant authorization forms, adverse action, and what charges you can consider and for how long—to include state and federal regulations.
  • Where criminal records come from, what constitutes “good data,” and the differences in manual county searches vs. online searches, as well as the dangers that instant data pose.
  • About “order review” (and why it's important), fingerprinting (and why it's not), credit reports (can I run them?), and state and federal searches.

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12 noon.
Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, July 23, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, July 23, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**

EEOC Update
Presented by Fred Bissinger, Regional Managing Member, Wimberly Lawson

Over the past few years, the EEOC has significantly ramped up its enforcement efforts and published numerous regulations, guidance, letters, Q&A fact sheets, etc., on significant employment law issues. The EEOC’s expects employers to understand and timely implement policies, procedures, and practices addressing these evolving employment law requirements. Given how quickly these changes have occurred, adapting to and complying with such change is a tall order for most employers.

  1. Learn about the EEOC’s current enforcement objectives, as set forth in the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan
