A long, stagnant hiring process can feel like an endurance test, causing candidates to re-think their decision or become disinterested. This has caused candidate dropout to become one of the biggest problems for many recruiting and staffing firms. You need to find ways to modernize and streamline your entire hiring process, from sourcing and application through the start of their assignment in order to maximize your placements and keep your candidates engaged.
During this webinar, our speaker will go beyond shortening the timeline and discuss specific areas where you can optimize your process. Industry expert, Tom Erb, will provide actionable strategies concerning common fall-off points, signs that you may be sabotaging your own success, new technologies to support your efforts and more.

NJSA's Lobbyist, Patrick A. Stewart from Public Strategies Impact, has provided members with an update on what is happening in the Trenton and in the state of New Jersey.  This update is available to NJSA Members ONLY in our Legal Resource Library on our website.  Members must be signed in to access the information.  

This week's update includes:
  • The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and Assembly Appropriations Committee advanced three bills that would legalize the recreational use of cannabis for adults, expand New Jersey's medical cannabis program and offer new ways for ex-offenders to expunge their records. 
  • Gov. Phil Murphy is frustrated by the lack of movement on a bill that would gradually boost the minimum wage to $15 an hour, saying his team sent a draft to legislative leaders months ago that was never given serious consideration. 
  • Senate President Steve Sweeney says he is working on a Senate version of the minimum wage bill and is also frustrated that there has been little movement on minimum wage negotiations, pinning the blame on Gov. Phil Murphy. 
  • Former Christie administration appointee Bill Baroni and administration official Bridget Anne Kelly will likely serve at least some prison time, as a federal appeals panel upheld most of their convictions over their roles in the 2013 Bridgegate scandal. 
  • The Assembly's Human Services Committee advanced 14 bills meant to address hunger and food scarcity in New Jersey on Thursday, including one piece of legislation sponsored by Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin that extends tax credits that open in areas designated as food deserts. 
  • Publicly held companies based in New Jersey would need to name women to their boards of directors or face hefty fines under a new proposal in the Assembly.
