Senior director of consulting solutions for Robert Half Legal Joel Wuesthoff and his team have partnered with Protiviti to host webinars to help clients preparing to meet these regulations. One webinar addressed newly tightened Department of Defense (DOD) requirements relating to contract review and technical security controls, which have to be met by December 2017. The webinar panel included Protiviti Government Services director John DiDuro; Robert Half Legal director of consulting solutions Scott Giordano; a lawyer from a boutique litigation firm in Washington, D.C.; and a director of enterprise security for a large defense aerospace manufacturing contractor. But it’s not all work and no play. “Even at the most stressful time, when we’re down to the wire, we still manage to find time to share a good laugh,” Vanessa said. “It helps to work with great people.” To come up with the new designs each year, the creative team strives to create innovative, visual elements that align with the company’s business goals, said studio manager Jenny Owens. And they’ve come up with some awardwinning designs. “During our brainstorm sessions, we come into a room and say, ‘I want to try this because I think it’ll resonate with our customers,’” she said. “We just throw ideas onto a whiteboard — it’s a safe zone where nothing’s off the table. We build on the best ones, so the end result is truly a team effort.” Jenny added, “As designers, we’re helping our customers use this product and make a difference in their day. The salary guides are a tool for hiring managers, and our job is to make sure it’s easy to use and creates the best experience possible.” The 2018 Salary Guides are available in North and South America, Europe and the Middle East. Guides for Asia Pacific are expected in early 2018. Shortly after the webinar concluded, one of its attendees — a Protiviti client whose company produces network security and performance products — requested support in complying with the new DOD requirements. Both Robert Half Legal and Protiviti were quick to respond. “Scott and the Protiviti team had multiple calls with the defense contractor’s IT leadership team and ultimately succeeded in closing a major deal, with a portion going to Robert Half Legal,” Joel said. “The client noted that having a ‘technical lawyer’ on our team was critical to the win.” Another recent webinar addressed General Data Protection Regulation readiness and provided insight into new EU data privacy rules that must be met by May 2018 for companies with a global reach. Scott and Jeff Sanchez, a managing director from Protiviti’s security and privacy solutions practice, addressed more than 600 registrants. Additional presentations were conducted in major U.S. cities during the fall. 22 HALF TIMES
