"Avoiding the Common Mistakes Staffing Companies make with their Accounting and Legal"
Running a successful staffing company involves many key components. Overseeing day to day operations, maintaining client relationships, assuring quality, and keeping and placing candidates in the workforce certainly keeps your schedule full.
Having outside professional resources to work with you on your accounting and legal needs is imperative – it is vital that these trusted advisors understand your business. Having experienced advisors knowledgeable in the staffing industry allows you to focus your attention where it is needed most, and helps to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls that can be a drag on profits.

"Bridging the Generational Work Divide -
Voyaging into the World of Hybrid Workplace and How"
" How to Set Expectations and Balance the Remote and In-Person Divide"
In this program about managing four different generations in the workplace, best-selling author Jeff Butler, backed by a decade of psychological research, shares insights about motivations, differences, and communication styles of these four generations. You will learn how organizations across various industries are thriving with a multi-generational workforce. And how yours can too. Through this program you’ll find specific actionable strategies to manage your cross-generational challenges and turn your multi-generational workforce into a competitive advantage.
In 2020, no one was planning on COVID-19 to force thousands of companies to transition to remote work. With these abrupt changes, countless teams found themselves communicating less, employee engagement lowered and deadlines missed because of the inevitable remote work challenges. The in-person managerial and leadership skills simply do not solve the obstacles that the remote workplace experience brings. However, there are a select few innovative companies that are leading the charge by building unstoppable remote workforces that are unexpectedly more effective than in-person teams. So what are these companies doing that makes them so successful? Since 2014 and well before the time of COVID, Jeff Butler has been building remote teams across different time zones and studying what the most successful remote companies do. From his research, he put them into practice in his own companies to discover the truth from fallacy. The ideas he found are simple, and yet profound, but most importantly, when someone learns how to master the remote manager techniques, it would make them that much better of an in-person leader. Learning to master remote work is no longer optional, its a necessity, but fortunately, anyone can create a successful workforce, its just a matter of how.
Speaker: Jeff Butler is the author of two provocative books - The Authentic Workplace and The Key To The New You and CEO of JButler International. Having written over 100 articles on workplace dynamics, his insights have been featured in dozens of media outlets such as Forbes and HR News. In addition, he has appeared on TEDx in both 2016 and 2017 with both talks focusing on psychology. Before Jeff founded his workplace consulting company, he spent almost a decade in Silicon Valley working as a Software Engineer which is where his initial interest in organization psychology began to develop. Since then, he has personally addressed over 100 organizations internationally on workplace dynamics issues such as Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, and Wells Fargo. He lives in Boston, MA with his family.
