Technical Meeting - September 2015

posted Jul 17, 2015, 11:27 AM by IMA IE Web

Rancho Cucamonga, CA, July 17, 2015 – The IMA®  Inland Empire Chapter is proud to announce our September Technical Meeting. The next meeting will take place on Thursday September 17, 2015.

There will be no meeting in August as we break for the summer. This September we welcome John Schafer, Regional Vice President, Parker+Lynch, Accounting Principals & Ajilon Professional Staffing.

To successfully attract and engage top talent you need more than a list of salary figures. Trends show that companies with the most effective recruiting and retention strategies are those that take a more universal look at the process by considering things like social media, generational differences, cultural fit and work/life balance.

Topics covered will include:

  • Factors shaping the hiring environment
  • Positions and skills in the greatest demand
  • Current trends in compensation
  • Insights beyond salary figures

John Schafer is the Regional Vice President for Accounting Principals, Ajilon Professional Staffing, and Parker + Lynch overseeing operations in Southern and Northern California. Over the last 14 plus years he has held both recruitment and leadership roles focusing on the development, recruitment, retention, and growth of the professional staffing sector of the one of the largest staffing organizations in the world. John received his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University at Long Beach. He is a long time Inland Empire resident and, when not on the soccer sidelines with his wife and two daughters, spends time riding horses with the family.
