Get Ready for the Year Ahead With Insights From the New Staffing Industry Playbook
The highly anticipated Staffing Industry Playbook, an annual economic analysis of the staffing industry, was recently released by ASA. The playbook provides data-driven information and insights that are critical to strategic planning and business development—in a user-friendly format—so you can understand the U.S. staffing and recruiting industry during the current economic disruption and evaluate where it’s headed.
