Join us Sept 23rd in Seattle for our 6th Annual Recruiting Conference

6th Annual SMA Seattle Staffing Symposium

Meydenbauer Center – Bellevue, WA

We hand-pick our favorite speakers from all the national recruitment and staffing conferences, bring them to you locally (Seattle/Bellevue) for a full day, and offer the entire program to you for a FRACTION of what you’d pay at ERE, SHRM, and other national conferences. You can bring your entire staffing team for the price of sending 1 person to Kennedy/Onrec!

  • You’ll connect and reconnect with hundreds of local and regional colleagues.
