RPO and the White House – 2/19

 Seaton’s CEO Patrick Beharelle attended a White House summit along with 20 other CEO’s of top U.S. companies who came together to meet with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. The group convened to discuss new ways to provide paths toward employment for qualified, long-term unemployed job seekers.
The White House summit is one way leaders are answering a call from the President, who in his State of the Union address last week, announced that he is asking every business leader in America to help the long-term unemployed get back into the job market. The group developed a set of best practices in the form of a formal pledge, heretofore signed by more than 300 companies, to remove barriers to employment for qualified job seekers who have faced long term unemployment.
Seaton CEO Patrick Beharelle comments, “I am delighted to lend Seaton’s recruitment experience and expertise to lead the way in developing new best practices that benefit people who have been, so far, facing challenging hurdles in the job market. At Seaton, our mission continues to be one of finding new ways to connect qualified candidates with employers who have unmet hiring needs. Signing this pledge is just the next step on an ongoing path to meet our commitment.”
