This week the American Staffing Association (ASA) held its annual conference, Staffing World, in Orlando. As one of the biggest conferences for staffing industry firms and professionals, Staffing World always offers news and informative exhibits. As a member of the ASA Board of Directors, and its past Chairman of the Board, PSG’s President Aaron Green was in Orlando for the conference. Here are a few updates from Aaron:

- Patrick Lencioni, a bestselling author and consultant, delivered a keynote speech on “The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business.” He defines a healthy organization as one with minimal politics and confusion and gave the audience several inspiring tips for fostering their own healthy organizations.
