The 2019 Annual Winter Retreat, one of OSPA’s premier events has been designed to meet members immediate needs as we enter the recruit and hire time of year. The Winter Retreat will be interactive and hands-on. The goal is that you will leave with a systemic process for applicants from the time of hire, to placement of employees, to the first day on the job, all while using tools that you currently have.
