America’s Job Exchange (AJE) was among the exhibitors at this year’s SHRM conference and exposition held in Atlanta, GA on June 24-26. With thousands in attendance, it was inevitable that we would see a few familiar faces as clients stopped by the AJE booth and to say hello. We were very happy to spend time with friends from Agrium, JetBlue, AAM, Red Cross, WRIT, and others who visited us to talk about recruitment and OFCCP compliance. We were also pleased that many of them shared feedback, both positive and constructive, on what they like about AJE products and services and how we can improve. That is always our goal.
What did we learn at SHRM? First and foremost, that OFCCP compliance in hiring practices is a growing concern for recruiters and HR professionals. It was certainly a hot topic during sessions, and more Federal contractors took to the exhibit floor in search of partners to assist with OFCCP compliance. Second, there is excitement around AJE’s OFCCP Compliance for Recruitment reporting portal. Clients reiterated how much they appreciate the feature and the confidence it gives them, and Federal contractors and recruiters who stopped by the AJE booth indicated that it fills an urgent need for them. And third (although we already knew this), we love being able to spend quality time with clients and prospects at events like SHRM.
We are already looking forward to next year’s event. However, we won’t have to wait long for our next opportunity to mingle with clients as the National ILG Conference is coming up fast – August 27-31 in Hawaii. Let us know if you are attending, we want to see you there! Finally, we want to congratulate Louise Belk from Quintiles in Durham, North Carolina. She was the winner of our Kindle Fire drawing at the AJE booth. Enjoy your Kindle, Louise!
