Free Online Course Based on Groundbreaking Industry Research

Even during this pandemic, one of the top issues of concern to staffing and recruiting professionals is growing their talent pipeline and overcoming the ongoing talent shortage. Communicating to job seekers in a way that resonates with them and captures their interest has never been more critical.

ASA conducted extensive research to understand the mindset of today’s job seeker and has created an online course in conjunction with the New Language of Staffing research and resulting strategies. The course—exclusively for staffing professionals with ASA member firms—features video modules, online quizzes, and more. ASA-certified professionals who complete the course can earn continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal.

Take Advantage of Vaccine Literacy Resources for Staffing Firms

As part of its continued effort to support staffing firms’ response to Covid-19, ASA launched a Vaccine Literacy Resources for Staffing Firms webpage. The site provides valuable downloads and links employers can use to engage and educate workers about Covid-19 vaccines. ASA partnered with the Health Action Alliance to share these free resources, including a quick-start guide, sample communications, vaccine FAQs, a social media tool kit, and more.

Research shows that businesses and employers are a trusted source of information and are well-suited to advance vaccine literacy efforts. The new ASA site also links to National Safety Council resources, developed by NSC’s “SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns” task force.

Visit the Vaccine Literacy Resources page today and check back regularly for updates—ASA will post new resources as they become available.
