Employment Branding – What Message Does Your Brand Send?

Every organization has an employment brand. This brand tells the world what it’s like to be a part of your organization. Employment branding is very similar to branding that organizations create for their products or services. In the branding of automobiles, some brands have the image of being sporty and fast, while other images of family, soccer games, and versatility. In the same regard, organizations have brands as to what it is like to be an employee. Some have images of a very structured and formal environment, while others are relaxed and embrace fun. Branding should be intentional and reflect the organization’s culture.

What is your organization’s brand?

Participants attending this webinar will learn how to determine their employment brand and how to develop a brand that will attract top talent.

IGS Electrical Leak Location Seminar Series: Ep. 4

The aim of the newly published standard practice for covered geomembrane electrical leak location testing is to locate all leaks in a lining system. Limitations and inadequacies of the previously used covered geomembrane standard practice (ASTM D7007) are all addressed and mitigated by the D8265 procedures. The new standard not only maximizes the sensitivity of the testing methods, but also forces the practitioner to report results in a way that is completely transparent. Therefore, mistakes and uncertainty cannot be hidden. This webinar will cover all aspects of the new standard practice, not only for practitioners, but also for anyone interested in reviewing testing results such as owners, design engineers, and contractors.

Non-Engineered Ballasting Tool Overview and Demonstration presented by TRD & ARA

The question of how much ballast is necessary to safely secure a tent is one that tent rental companies have been struggling with for decades. While most newer tents are certified by engineers to require a set amount of ballast, there are still many – particularly older tents or tents that have been modified from their original design – that do not have the corresponding documentation that can be used as a guideline for installers, but also shown to local code officials as verification that the structure has been properly secured.

After many years of study and research, this new tool allows the tent industry the opportunity to better answer that question and give code officials something tangible to know this tent was set up safely. Join us for an overview and demonstration of the Non-Engineered Ballasting Tool and a discussion on why the Tent Rental Division (TRD) and American Rental Association (ARA) partnered up to develop this additional ballasting tool.
