    Neal Hirsch
    Managing Partner, Richard Wayne & Roberts

    Neal joined Richard, Wayne & Roberts as an executive recruiter in March 1980 and was named a Managing Partner in 1984. During his tenure, the company expanded from a five-desk engineering recruitment firm to a 73-desk firm that recruits professionals in accounting, legal, retail and multi-family real estate, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, healthcare, and engineering. The firm also owns and operates the Carlton companies, which provide contract and temporary personnel in a variety of specialized fields.

    Neal has made countless direct hire professional placements as a recruiter during his career at Richard, Wayne and Roberts, as well as hiring, training, motivating, and managing hundreds of recruiters in diverse specialty teams to successful careers in the recruiting profession.

    He holds a B.S. degree from Ohio State University and a M.S. degree from Xavier University. He has published several articles on the staffing industry and conducted highly acclaimed training seminars for HAAPC and TAPC in Texas, and was a featured speaker at a national conference for NAPS.

    Mr. Hirsch has served on the HAAPC Board of Directors, and supports educational programs and proactive public relations efforts by the personnel consulting industry. In 1998, Neal received the Outstanding Contribution to the Private Placement Industry Award from the Houston Association of Personnel Consultants, and a President’s Award from TAPC in 2004.




    Being the Best!!

    It's 2012, time to be more, accomplish more, and to become the "go-to" Recruiter in your field.  Because of the ease of entry, too many people get into recruiting without a true commitment to this being their profession.  Neal's goal in presenting this class is to share tools to help everyone in attendance move towards becoming just as accomplished in our business as an engineer, accountant or lawyer would be in theirs. 
    • Effective recruiting strategy
    • Uncovering candidate motivation
    • Taking a true recruiting assignment (not just a job order)
    • Closing the deal (deliverability)

    Cost:
    $69/ member
    $85/ non-member (RENEW your membership TODAY!!!)


    Registration closes Monday, February 13th


    .March.

    The ballots are in and have been tabulated ....

    Sponsored by Careerbuilder, join HAAPC and their guests for our Annual Presentation of Production Awards. Awards Program emceed by Barbara Bruno!

    At this event Career builder will also be doing a special content offering on the topic of:

    Building an Engaging Sales Culture
    Selling new services to a larger base of customers is a common goal among staffing and recruiting firms. Building a sales organization that outperforms short-term sales goals and sustains commitment to its long-term mission is both an art and a science. Understanding the personal motivations of individual sales people, communicating clear objectives, and recognizing achievements can help firms establish a culture of winning and create momentum for ongoing sales success.

    This session will cover:

    • Habits of consistently successful sales organizations.
    • Labor pressure and compensation levels for sales professionals, based on different experience levels and geographies.
    • Steps firms can take to build a cohesive, unique sales culture.

    $50/ person includes Program, Presentation, and Lunch.

    Registration closes
    Friday, March 16th!


    Please head on over to our Events Page to register for these upcoming events!
