In an ever-changing world, it’s important to constantly remain educated in new ways to keep up with passive talent.

Michael Schlager, founder of Hiring Solutions Group (HSG), located in Passaic, New Jersey, recently attained two important credentials: a Master’s Certificate from the prestigious Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations, and designation as a Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) from the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS). Based on his two decades worth of experience and this achievement, Michael believes, “As change is the only constant in today’s society, we feel that evolving with continuing education is the root of staying attuned to the marketplace.”

The NextGen HR Master’s Certificate program is an advanced credential from Rutgers University’s prestigious School of Management and Labor Relations, developed to provide the framework to keep executives ahead in motivating and engaging employees. Today’s Human Resource professional need to keep up to date, due to rapidly changing workforce dynamics, technological advancements, unprecedented access to data and economic influences.

Through the program, Michael improved skills in areas such as leveraging technology from E-Learning to Big Data, embracing social media, Gamification, managing virtual environments, and HR law. Today’s regulatory environment and increasingly litigious society demand that recruiters possess greater knowledge of employment law. Attorney Marc D. Freedman, NAPS General Counsel, said of the updates, “Certification is beneficial for recruiters and others in the staffing industry to get a basic understanding of the multiple employment laws that exist and identify legal issues. I believe the most important aspect is that it will enable the recruiter to provide a value added to the clients and candidates and avoid pitfalls.”

By passing the newly revised Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) credentialing exam, containing expanded sections on contract law and more current information about the industry, Michael has joined the most established and widely recognized certification program in the industry.

With these certifications, Michael Schlager has placed himself at the top of the recruiting field, enabling him to more effectively navigate the world of executive search and the human resources which surround it. He will also share his knowledge with the HSG staff. Given the focus HSG puts on excellence for its clients, candidates, and its company, it is certain that this achievement will spur the firm to greater successes.
