Brooklyn, New York – September 29, 2021 – Staffing software-maker Candidately is proud to present the 2022 World Staffing Summit, to be held January 24 to 28, 2022. Building off the success of the inaugural 2021 event, the 2022 conference aims to help staffing leaders gain access to valuable insights and connect with their peers like never before.
“We were thrilled with the response we received for our initial event,” says Jan Jedlinski, co-founder of the World Staffing Summit and CEO/co-founder of Candidately. “We had over 3,000 staffing leaders from 120 countries participate to make this the largest virtual conference ever for the staffing industry. Thanks to that success, we’re able to aim even higher for the 2022 Summit.”
The 2021 World Staffing Summit focused on what the staffing industry would need to do as the world returned to a “new normal” in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the accelerated digital transformation of the job space and record high unemployment levels to an unprecedented oversupply of labor opportunities, the pandemic created never-before-seen challenges for the industry. The task of helping millions of people get back to work — and the pandemic’s lasting changes on the staffing industry — were key elements of the event.
The 2021 event featured panels, roundtables and presentations from over 45 industry experts, including Sue Bhatia, Emily Costello, Ezratty, John Healy, Doug Leeby, Sonu Ratra and more. The content, presenters and platform all received high praise from attendees.
“For the 2021 Summit, we felt it was best to stick with a single-day format,” Jedlinski explains.
“Now that we’ve been able to hold one successful event and assess what went well and where we needed to work out the kinks, we’re confident in our ability to expand our scope for 2022. With a longer conference, we’re able to provide more high-value content and create more opportunities for staffing leaders to connect on a more meaningful level.”
Like the inaugural event, the World Staffing Summit 2022 will be completely virtual. This time, however, panels, interviews and other content will be hosted over the course of five days. Over 150 staffing experts will share their insights, and over 10,000 staffing owners and operators are expected to attend.
Insightful keynotes and panel discussions aren’t the only reason to attend. “We really view the World Staffing Summit as an opportunity for staffing professionals to grow their professional network,” Jedlinski says. “As part of the conference, attendees will be able to connect live with their peers, including through virtual one on one meet-ups. We hope that this helps each attendee become part of a global community of forward-thinking staffing leaders who can help shape the industry in the coming decade.”
Perhaps most exciting for attendees, the World Staffing Summit 2022 is completely free to attend. Those who are interested simply need to register in advance to reserve their spot. For those who are unable to participate in the live event, each session will be recorded. By signing up, individuals can receive a notification when the recordings become available sometime after the end of the conference.
The 2022 World Staffing Summit is also eligible for SHRM and HRCI credits. SHRM or HRCI-certified professionals should make note of this information during registration so they can receive information about the event’s recertification credits.
“The staffing industry has undergone rapid change, but not everyone has been able to keep up,” Jedlinski says. “Ultimately, we hope that by providing the resources and network that staffing leaders need to adapt and grow, we can create a stronger, more robust future for the entire industry.”
