  • MAS: Hazard Identification In The Product Life Cycle

    Contains 5 Component(s), 1 credit offered Recorded On: 08/22/2018

    Product safety is a challenging issue in the promotional products industry because the ultimate use and users of the product are not always known at the time of manufacture. This session will address vital considerations that could help you avoid potential hazards for your business.

    Product safety is a challenging issue in the promotional products industry because the ultimate use and users of the product are not always known at the time of manufacture. For example, promotional products that are intended for use by adults are given out at trade shows and in workplaces and may end up in the hands of children. This does not mean that every promotional product must be designed as safe for children of all ages, but it does mean that a determination about its appeal and foreseeable use by children needs to be considered when manufacturing or distributing a promotional product. Join Sue DeRagon for this session and she will address vital considerations that could help you avoid potential hazards for your business.

  • Tech Summit 2018: Recruiting IT Talent

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1 credit offered Recorded On: 08/16/2018

    Do you ever find yourself conducting an interview and you think to yourself this is the perfect person and you want to hire them on the spot? Then two months later you start to feel this person is a total stranger? Imagine the impact poor selection has on customer care, irritated coworkers, possible litigation, rehiring costs, a damaged reputation, and let’s not mention, lost sleep. The bad news about interviewing is we often only scratch the surface, not being able to dig deep during a 45-minute period. Therefore, we rely on resumes, appearance, LinkedIn endorsements and references. The good news is there’s a way to dig deep using a behavioral interview technique that allows the candidate to tell you what past accomplishments they want to talk about. Yep, you let them set the agenda. And you drive the conversation further to find out what the candidate did, said, thought, and/or felt to achieve the accomplishment. Past behaviors are the best predictor of future behaviors.
