Be an Industry Champion, Invest in ASA Certification Today

Want to be a greater asset to your clients and talent? Want to send a strong message to your staffing firm employees that you value them and their careers? Want to differentiate yourself and your company now and into 2023? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then right now is the perfect time to invest in yourself, your team, and your staffing company.

“After more than four years of experience in the staffing industry, I wanted to take steps to advance my career, set myself apart from other staffing professionals, and prove to myself that this is the right career path for me,” says Lauren Brown, CSP, of J. Kent Staffing Inc. “The exam elevated what I already knew and has already impacted how I manage staff and handle the prescreen/interview process.” Brown earned her Certified Staffing Professional designation and shared her experience in a recent issue of Staffing Success magazine.
