ST. LOUIS (March 16, 2010) — TALX, provider of Equifax Workforce Solutions and a leader in human resource, tax and payroll-related services, today announced details of its upcoming eSeminar. Titled “Gear up! Getting Your Hiring Process Ready for an Upturn,” the eSeminar is being held Thursday, March 18, 2010. Intended to address the issues that will face human resource and payroll professionals as the economy rebounds, the hour-long panel will discuss how to meet demands of the growing volume of positions to fill and new hires to onboard.

The panel consisting of TALX subject matter experts as well as industry thought leaders, will examine the needs of the still-large pool of ready-to-hire applicants, a rising number of new hires entering organizations and the limited amount of HR resources available to manage these trends. The eSeminar will specifically detail how to prepare for the changes that this triple threat will soon impart on hiring professionals.

Featured speakers include Elaine Orler, President of Talent Function Group LLC and TALX executives Jim Canfield, Vice President, Employee Services; Angela Lockman, Vice President, Tax Credits and Incentives; Troy Hupp, I-9 Product Specialist; and Neal Packard, General Manager of Onboarding Services. The panel will be joined by the Chief Science Officer of pan, A TALX Company, Reid E. Klion, Ph.D.

Throughout the panel, these experts will provide attendees with best practice techniques and information to proactively prepare for a swift influx of hiring. Speakers will address specific areas that organizations and human resource departments should be adept in, to meet the changing hiring landscape. Topics to be discussed include:

– Potential impact of the “Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (Hire) jobs bill
– How to calibrate assessments to fill more positions without sacrificing new hire quality
– How to prepare for the compliance challenges with increased new hire volume
– The special compliance challenges stemming from I-9s and E-Verify
– Making sure new hires are checked against the ever shifting opportunities for employment tax credits

Jim Canfield, Vice President, TALX, said, “Our eSeminar will address the challenges human resource and payroll professionals are facing as the economy recovers and talent demand increases. Over the last three years, drastic economic fluctuations have changed the way human resource departments function, and as individuals slowly reenter corporate America and the workforce, these divisions must be agile, flexible and fully prepared. In response, TALX has designed this panel to foster a collaborative learning environment for attendees to gather new-hire strategic management tools and insight.”
