Did You Miss This Week’s WEBO?

The Weekly Economic & Business Outlook—or WEBO—is a new resource from ASA that goes out to member email boxes every Tuesday morning. This powerful and targeted data and analysis tool features weekly analysis designed to deliver the data-driven intelligence and forward-looking business acumen ASA members need to track trends and capitalize on opportunities.

ASA researchers examine trends within the staffing industry, as well as developments within the broader economy, and then deliver succinct takeaways that can help drive strategic business decisions. Make sure you receive ASA research emails, including the weekly WEBO, by clicking the “Unsubscribe/Manage Email Preferences” link at the bottom of this email and opting in to research content—and be sure to allow emails from research@americanstaffing.net so you don’t miss this valuable new member benefit.
