Tell ASA: What Technology Tools Do You Use?

ASA would like to better understand the different technologies and technology suppliers its members use in their operations.

Recently, ASA sent staffing professionals a link to a questionnaire, which should take only seven to 10 minutes to complete. Responses are due tomorrow.

In appreciation of your input, when you submit your responses you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win free consultation from Talent Tech Labs or an Amazon gift card (winners also may choose to have an equivalent donation made to the American Red Cross). If you have questions or did not receive a survey link, email research@americanstaffing.net.
