Advanced Resources is proud to be an active member of the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC). We were once again an exhibitor at their annual Summit, which was held yesterday at the Donald A. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. We chatted about the show with our own Liz Bright, Managing Director.
Throughout 2013, Advanced celebrated a major milestone for our organization – our 25th Anniversary. Companies celebrate anniversaries in different ways: extra employee bonuses, parties, etc. At Advanced, we wanted to commemorate this milestone with a special initiative that aligned closely with our mission, “making a difference”; thus, the 25th Anniversary Charity Contest was born.
We're closing out another Staffing Employee Week! What a great way to celebrate workers employed by staffing firms. The celebration was first established by the American Staffing Association as a way to honor the contributions of America's temporary and contract work force. According to the ASA, businesses tap into staffing firms for quality talent in virtually all occupational sectors, from skilled tradesmen to call center service representatives to attorneys. Seventy-nine percent of temporary and contract employees work full-time (35 hours or more per week), virtually the same as the rest of the work force.
