Happy Spring Everyone!

Hey everyone!

It’s been since December since I posted anything. My apologies! Not that anyone requested more content from me!

I was in Chicago recently for the annual AA-ISP conference and tradeshow. It was my first time ever for this particular association.

Around 600 folks arrived worldwide and it was interesting and surreal. Some people weren’t sure how to act around others in real life!

Nice to meet people in person I’ve interacted with only via phone, email, or Zoom and get back to the “new” normal.

2 hot button topics were:

  1. How to find and hire good candidates.
  2. How to keep the existing quality team from leaving.

Lots of great conversation and sharing ideas in this very tight and limited labor market.

What trade shows and conferences are you attending lately?

I’m Ray Ruecker with Connect 5000. Spring is around the corner!
