Background Checks, Apple TV’s and a Good Time: 2013 Annual SHRM Conference Recap
June 20, 2013
After a few days of recuperating and catching up, it’s time to reflect on the 2013 Annual SHRM Conference. Chicago’s streets, particularly the areas surrounding the McCormick Place, were flooded with HR folks and exhibitors alike. If you were unable to attend, here’s a glance at some of the bustling activity of the show (mainly from our perspective, of course.)
We greeted many attendees at the EmployeeScreenIQ booth this year, with a phone charger giveaway and I “heart” EmployeeScreenIQ stickers in addition to answering any questions attendees had about employment background checks. Some common questions we received:
- What makes EmployeeScreenIQ better?
- What’s the average turnaround time for results?
- Does EmployeeScreenIQ do international background checks? Substance abuse screening?
Of course, every company has different needs when it comes to background checks, so this is only a small sampling of questions. If you’ve had any of these questions yourself, or would like to ask more questions about our services, find out how you can contact us here.
Our big giveaway at the conference was the Apple TV. We asked anyone who visited our booth to wear an I “heart” EmployeeScreenIQ sticker around the conference. Every few hours we scouted for someone wearing a sticker and awarded them with an Apple TV.
Each of us at the booth also made sure to walk around the conference to see and meet other exhibitors. We had the opportunity to stop by and say hello to one of our preferred partners, iCIMS for a photo op with their adorable mascot, Ike.
Thanks to everyone who stopped to talk about background checks or just said hello, we enjoyed meeting you and hope to speak again soon!
