Chicago, February 6, 2019 — Resource 1 has announced that their Executive Vice President/Managing Director, Anastasia Valentine, will be a featured speaker at the 2019 Executive Forum North America: Breakthrough Leadership, taking place this month.

Hosted by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the Executive Forum is the preeminent annual event for CEOs, owners and senior-level staffing executives across industry sectors and sizes. The conference, now in its 28th year, connects top leadership from across the staffing world in a platform dedicated to furthering actionable insights and advancing knowledge for business success in the industry.

Anastasia will discuss the emergence of new innovative technology categories and how staffing firms are, and should be, taking advantage of what they have to offer during the Automation or Stagnation panel on Wednesday, February 27.

As the Executive Vice President/Managing Director at Resource 1, Anastasia is responsible for technical infrastructure/architecture, technical recruiting, marketing and human resources initiatives. With over 20 years at Resource 1, she is on the Board of Directors involved in the overall strategic planning and implementation of long and short-term goals.

“To answer the challenges that come with a technical talent shortage, our industry is now leveraging AI at every stage of the recruitment process,” said Valentine. “Even though we are able to reach more candidates quicker than ever before, the importance of fostering real connections can’t be an afterthought. To truly optimize talent acquisition strategy, businesses must strive to balance the AI they need, with the human connections our industry was built upon.”

“This year’s Executive Forum North America takes aim at empowering high-performance executive leadership and breaking through barriers to personal and organizational growth,” said Barry Asin, SIA President. “Our 2019 speakers give us a lens through which to view industry trends, staffing leadership and the critical decisions, challenges, issues and opportunities facing leaders today. I am excited for the energy, the expertise and the full conference program, and look forward to welcoming attendees in Austin.”
