Don’t Get Stuck With Unreliable Data—Participate in the ASA Staffing Index

Looking for real-time data on staffing employment? The ASA Staffing Index reports weekly changes in the number of people employed in temporary and contract work. The data will help your firm evaluate its performance against a national metric on both a weekly and long-term basis.

Participants receive a weekly email with the results of the weekly survey, including figures by company size, and access to historical data and new dynamic charts. These data, which are not available anywhere else, allow staffing firms to compare how their business is doing on a weekly basis relative to similarly sized firms in the industry. There are no fees to participate in the three-question survey.

Sign up to participate in the ASA Staffing Index and receive the most up-to-date information about the staffing industry.
