In this valuable session, you’ll hear from three staffing firm CEOs: Monte Block of Equiliem, Arthur Banks of Horizon Healthcare and Jim Essey of The TemPositions Group along with Tannenbaum Helpern partner Jason Klimpl about what causes them the most concern in agreements they review, and how they negotiate the risks downward.
