Employee Referral Reminder!

CEO is always looking for talented people, just like you!  We are currently hiring for numerous positions and who better to refer someone to our organization than YOU!

Refer a candidate today, if that candidate is hired and completes/passes all necessary preliminary screenings, you will receive a $500 bonus!!!

This bonus is paid out once they’ve successfully completed their Introductory period.

To refer a potential candidate, log into your ADP Employee Self Service ——Myself——–Talent——–Career Center—-and in the upper right corner of your screen click on ‘Refer a Friend’.

Enter the candidate’s (correct) contact information.

Another option is to have the candidate add YOUR name to their ADP application in the “Referred By” box.

Once completed, please email Tabitha Owens to make her aware of the referral.

Annual Cyber Security Training

It’s time to do our annual cyber security training. All staff will be required to complete the short training in the next few weeks. As an agency we utilize a software called ProofPoint to administer and track the training. Staff will receive an email directly from the software (CEO’s Security Education Platform) in the next few days. This email is not spam, and staff should click on the link in the email to watch the training module videos on ProofPoint’s website.

Once all of the videos have been completed, staff will receive a confirmation of training completion email from ProofPoint. That email should be forwarded on to hr@ceoempowers.org. The training videos do not have to be watched all at once, as the software tracks your progress. Collectively the training won’t take more than a half an hour. Staff will have until October 7th to complete the training.

Thank for your cooperation. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions.
