CHICAGO (June 24, 2011) — Staff Management | SMX, the industry’s leading provider of full spectrum staffing solutions, today announced that it will be a guest speaker at the IMAGE (ICE Mutual Agreement Between Government and Employers) Forum being held in Chicago at the Drake Hotel June 28, 2011. IMAGE is hosting a series of forums over the next four months in major cities across the country to introduce the recently revamped IMAGE program.
Staff Management Co-Founder and Vice President of Operations, Loree Lynch, will present at the Forum, sharing Staff Management’s road to IMAGE Charter Membership and the benefits the company has realized as a result. Lynch will be joined by Lynn Davisson, Staff Management Director of Centralized Services, and Raul Ipina, Staff Management Centralized Services Operations Manager, for a question and answer session after the presentation.
“We are pleased to participate in this important forum,” said Lynch. “With the onus squarely on employers to ensure the legality of their workforce, voluntary participation in the newly revamped IMAGE program is a great opportunity for employers to do the right thing. We will share the benefits that we have realized since becoming IMAGE Charter Members in 2006 — in particular, the opportunity to provide our clients with the highest level of risk mitigation and brand protection available.”
The IMAGE Forum is open to all companies interested in finding out more about how to become IMAGE certified. The Forum features a presentation on the new IMAGE program from Beth Gibson, Assistant Deputy Director, ICE as well as sessions on Employer Form I-9 compliance, detecting fraudulent documents, and an E-Verify demo from Dave Basham, Management and Program Analysts, USCIS. If companies are interested in enrolling in the new IMAGE program they must: enroll in the E-verify Program within 60 days of joining, establish an internal compliance program, and submit to a Form I-9 audit.
