ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) -  Equifax Workforce Solutions, a global provider of human resource services, today announced details of its participation at the upcoming SHRM 2013 Annual Conference & Exposition, to be held Sunday, June 16 through Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Othic will also detail the ICE IMAGE program, which assists employers in developing a more secure and stable workforce, and explain the benefits of and requirements for joining.

In addition to sharing the company's thought leadership in Form I-9 and E-Verify, representatives from Equifax Workforce Solutions will be on hand during exhibition hours to demonstrate the company's leading HR solutions and show how they bring greater efficiencies and cost savings to workforce data management and verification processes.
