Benefits of HAAPC Membership
The Houston Area Association of Personnel Consultants (HAAPC) is Houston's only association specifically dedicated to the recruiting and staffing industry in our region. There are many benefits that come with membership:
Health Benefits Plan
HAAPC members are now eligible for a low-cost health benefits plan. This plan allows owners and managers of firms from all sizes to provide health benefits for themselves and/or their employees. Whether you are a single owner/operator or have a team of 20 or more, you can sign up for this health benefits plan. This plan is administered through our Affiliate Member Kerrie Spriggs with The Tuit Agency, and is available only to HAAPC members. Here is a flyer explaining the plan options.
Education & Training
With a focus on industry best practices, HAAPC provides training for firm owners, managers, recruiters, and staff at all levels. Our focus for 2020-2021 will be online and digital training until we can start to meet in person again. Training topics include best practices on recruiting, sourcing, and business development for full desk recruiters at all levels. Managment and Owner-focused training helps firm managers learn new ways to grow their teams and businesses. With a slate of local, regional, and national speakers, HAAPC strives to provide a robust education program that focuses on building value for firms and individual members.
One big goal of HAAPC is to help member firms save money on a variety of expenses. The Health Benefits Plans available to members is just one example of that. Members also get discounts on printing, office supplies, rental cars, moving expenses, and other goods and services that are beneficial to staffing firms. We are always on the hunt for new cost-saving options to continue to add value to the HAAPC membership.
Networking & Industry Recognition
While options for this are limited in 2020, HAAPC has always offered exceptional opportunities for members to network with others in the industry. Our annual awards luncheon - in it's 38th year - has been a staple of recognition and networking for recruiters across our region. Some of those same networking opportunities have shifted to online/virtual programming this year, while others have been pushed back to 2021. HAAPC remains steadfast in striving to provide opportunites to celebrate and connect with others in the staffing and recruiting industry.
Owner & Manager Events
We recognize that firm Owners and Managers face a unique set of challenges in today's marketplace. To help our member firms, HAAPC offers specific events and information specifically for firm managers and owners. Whether it's a webinar on managing remotely, recruiting new team members in a tough market, or allowing owners to come together for an Owner Only Happy Hour, HAAPC hopes to provide a platform to allow owners and managers the chance to network, learn, and grow their companies.
