Bullhorn Seeks to Bridge the Opportunity Divide through Expanded Support of Workplace Development Nonprofits https://asamarketplace.net/news-releases/2018/06/14/bullhorn-seeks-to-bridge-the-opportunity-divide-through-expanded-support-of-workplace-development-nonprofits/ Thu, 14 Jun 2018 14:15:49 +0000 http://asamarketplace.net/?post_type=news-release&p=5674 Bullhorn Joins Pledge 1%, Announces New Partnership with Year Up, and Dedicates $50,000 Donation Match to Help Talent Shine through Circumstance

ENGAGE BOSTON 2018—Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organizations transform their businesses, today announced that it has joined Pledge 1% – a global corporate philanthropy initiative in which forward-looking organizations pledge one percent of their equity, employee time, product, and/or profit to benefit their communities.

While talent is distributed equally, opportunity – unfortunately – is not. To that end, Bullhorn has made it a corporate mission to help close the opportunity gap, both in the initiatives and organizations it supports, and in the customers it empowers.

Bullhorn’s official association with Pledge 1% is just the latest example of its core commitment to social responsibility and community service; in 2006, the company launched its philanthropic arm, Bullhorn Cares, through which all employees are allowed and encouraged to volunteer in their communities every quarter. Bullhorn Cares has raised $500,000 since its inception, with $60,000 given to workplace development nonprofits in 2018 alone.

A key recipient of Bullhorn Cares’ efforts over the years has been Career Collaborative, a nonprofit organization that teaches unemployed and underemployed adults with low-income jobs how to build careers that change their lives and strengthen their families. Art Papas, Bullhorn’s founder and CEO, has been Chairman of the Board of Directors of Career Collaborative since 2015.

Bullhorn’s annual North American staffing and recruiting industry conference, Engage, is currently taking place in Boston, Massachusetts, celebrating the theme of The Power of People, and showcasing transformative stories of the staffing industry’s bold leadership and dedication to helping adults achieve dignity and provide for themselves and their families through meaningful work. To this end, Bullhorn has partnered with Year Up, a nonprofit organization that helps urban young adults reach their achievement potential. At Engage Boston 2018, Bullhorn will match all corporate and personal donations to Year Up, as well as those to Career Collaborative, up to $50,000.

“If there is one thing I’ve learned working in the workforce solutions ecosystem over the past 19 years,” said Art Papas, “it’s that almost everyone has the potential to build a truly rewarding career to provide for themselves and their families. But the reality is that there are millions of smart, hard-working adults that lack the knowledge, mentorship, and self-confidence to pursue those opportunities. They believe that rewarding careers are beyond their reach. Bridging the chasm between potential and empowerment is an enormous opportunity for our communities, and it’s the focus of all of our philanthropic efforts at Bullhorn.”

Bullhorn’s Engage Boston 2018 Shares Powerful Stories from the Staffing Industry’s Most Notable Leaders https://asamarketplace.net/news-releases/2018/06/13/bullhorns-engage-boston-2018-shares-powerful-stories-from-the-staffing-industrys-most-notable-leaders/ Wed, 13 Jun 2018 13:54:23 +0000 http://asamarketplace.net/?post_type=news-release&p=5672 Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organizations transform their businesses, will present its highly anticipated Engage Boston 2018 conference with a variety of stories that will showcase how the staffing industry’s most notable leaders are addressing the industry’s greatest challenges. Celebrating its 11th anniversary, Engage Boston 2018 will allow attendees to learn how to transform the staffing and recruiting industry, their businesses, and the lives of candidates through the power of people.

“In the staffing industry, we’re providing opportunities to make differences in the lives of individuals – whether that means presenting them with exciting careers, the chance to prove themselves in new challenges, or the possibility to flourish in society,” said Carole McCluskey, chief information and technology officer, TrueBlue. “It’s incredibly moving to hear how our associates’ lives are changing for the better, and that’s one of the many reasons why I enjoy working in staffing.”

However, myriad challenges face the staffing and recruiting industry, requiring firms to navigate a new world of work. Overcoming leadership challenges and appreciating the greatest strengths in talent, customers, and business leaders drives organizational growth and creates new opportunities for firms. For Joyce Russell, president, Adecco Staffing US, her journey at Adecco relied heavily on developing strong relationships with her colleagues, candidates, and clients.

“I’ve always been moved by the power of establishing strong connections with the people who’ve made the biggest impact on my career,” said Russell, who will join Bullhorn Founder and CEO Art Papas for a fireside chat about leadership lessons. “It’s through these relationships that people can grow their careers and their businesses because – in an industry that is fueled by relationships – people are the catalysts for change.”

Inspiring change from within, motivating and guiding others, navigating new technologies, and maintaining a focus on the power of interpersonal relationships are also other challenges that staffing and recruiting leaders face in today’s business environment. For companies to accelerate their growth, they must rely on their relationships to increase their operations.

“I believe that retention and growth of good people, rather than acquisitions of other companies, is what drives business growth,” said Mark Nussbaum, chief operating officer, Signature Consultants, who’s leading “The Mind of the Practical Leader” session. “Creating a workplace culture that fosters friendships and motivates people will elevate a firm above its competition. It comes down to culture because a company is only as good as the people it employs.”

One example of a thriving workplace culture is Strategic Staffing Solutions, which has helped it attract a loyal and growing roster of consultants. One strategy to ensure a positive culture is seeking unique talent, but that requires asking difficult questions to identify these individuals.

“Businesses must overcome inherent biases and must nurture a corporate and candidate culture that appeals to marginalized but qualified talent pools such as veterans, returning mothers, and the LGBT community,” said Cindy Pasky, founder, president, and CEO of Strategic Staffing Solutions, who is presenting the “Relationships Above All Else: Creating a Culture that Builds Long-Term Trust” session. “Technology can make recruiters even more human and effective at their jobs, allowing them to negotiate the numerous complexities that are arising in the global recruiting sphere.”

Alongside internal talent acquisition challenges are confounding external factors.

Brexit, data protection regulations, financial oversight, trade tariffs, and a continually shifting political landscape are requiring global staffing and recruiting firms to rely on their teams to confront a counter-intuitive economic climate.

“Mitigating these obstacles requires firms to diversify their business strategies, starting with improving sales and recruitment growth and operational efficiencies,” said Janette Marx, global chief operating officer, Airswift, and finalist for the Staffing Leader category of the Bullseye Awards for Staffing Innovation. Marx is also participating on the “Global Perspectives, Local Impact: Growing Your Staffing Firm in a Changing Economic Climate” panel. “I personally enjoy the challenge of working through evolving economic times because it allows our firm to come together as one to face the hurdles head on and overcome them. The power of people is what generates success in our industry.”

To hear these stories, and more, don’t miss Engage Boston 2018 – taking place June 13-15 at The Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. For more information about Engage Boston 2018, please visit http://ow.ly/IoPN30ifkR5. Follow the conference online at #BullhornEngage.

AMGtime recently released the transformative Payroll Wizard for customers using AMGtime solutions for time, attendance and scheduling.

With this solution, administrators can create export files based on their real-time requirements. (Click here to try AMGtime and Payroll Wizard free for 30 days.)

AMGtime already offers seamless API integrations with select payroll and HCM software, which include QuickBooks, Xero, CloudPayroll and more. AMGtime has also built out payroll exports for over 120+ payroll providers, such as ADP, Paychex, Sage and Ceridian. However, AMGtime’s quest for ease and efficiency has led them to create a third option. Keeping in mind that not all desired exports for payroll or proprietary software are readily available, the Payroll Wizard has been developed to allow users the option of creating and saving their own data export files directly from the system.

Existing users of AMGtime software will have full access to the Payroll Wizard. From there, managers can quickly include custom elements and create the desired export file with just a few clicks. All prospective clients of AMGtime will automatically be provided the Payroll Wizard upon signing up.

CHILDS Advisory Partners Announces Name Change to Bowstring Advisors https://asamarketplace.net/news-releases/2018/05/15/childs-advisory-partners-announces-name-change-to-bowstring-advisors/ Tue, 15 May 2018 15:28:31 +0000 http://asamarketplace.net/?post_type=news-release&p=5652 CHILDS Advisory Partners – a leading provider of middle-market investment banking services and The M&A Advisor’s 2016 “Boutique Investment Banking Firm of the Year” – announced today that it is changing its corporate name to Bowstring Advisors. The name change reflects the vision of founder and CEO, Jim Childs, and the evolution of the firm’s expanding team of senior bankers, which has executed 77 M&A transactions since 2014.

“We’re the same dedicated, middle-market experts who pride ourselves on being a humble, hungry and smart team. The only difference is our name,” said Childs. “A bowstring joins the two ends of the bow and launches the arrow. The new name better describes our mission to give clients guidance and counsel that propels them and their companies forward.”

The change is effective immediately, and the new name and logo were unveiled yesterday at the company’s 9th annual conference at the St. Regis in Atlanta, Georgia. Over 500 company owners, private equity firm executives and media representatives were among the first to see the new logo and branding elements and hear the implementation strategy.

“It’s exciting to see firsthand how well-received the announcement was among the people who matter the most – the clients we advise and partners we work with on a daily basis. The name change wasn’t something that we took lightly,” said Childs. “One thing we know for certain is that there is an awareness and appreciation of our values, and that’s something we will absolutely preserve and even build upon with the new brand. Our commitment to always be straightforward with our counsel and smart with our approach remains the same.”

The name change is the culmination of a nearly year-long effort that involved outside research and more than 80 one-on-one interviews with employees, private companies, private equity firms and past prospects. “It’s always a fine line to walk when considering a name change, and we were cognizant of that throughout the process,” said Kara Petracek, Vice President of Marketing & Strategy. “Jim’s mandate was clear. Any name change or rebranding should be necessary and satisfy a rationale. It should be clear, it should be reflective of our mission and it should be additive to our go-to-market strategy. Our leadership team felt that a transition to Bowstring Advisors met the mark.”

The change comes as the organization continues to expand and demonstrate an ability to bring tailor-made solutions that deliver the best possible outcomes.
