Unlock Limitless Growth: Join the Digital Differentiation Revolution at Staffing World

Staffing World®, the ASA annual convention and expo, is where the staffing community comes together to make strategic connections, learn about new strategies, and get solutions that fuel growth and accelerate success.

This year’s event takes place Oct. 3–5 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC, and will feature more than 30 learning sessions in 12 major content categories— including “Why You Should Double Down on Digital Differentiation.”

With talent acquisition a top priority for recruitment agencies, and talent wishing that finding jobs through recruitment agencies was more streamlined, what will separate winning agencies from the competition? The combination of transformative technology and the human touch. How can your tech stack play a key role in helping you stand out from the competition and better serve your clients? And how can you build an engagement strategy with a focus on personalization and scalability? In this session, Jeff Neumann of Bullhorn, an ASA corporate partner, will share why digital differentiation should be your team’s primary focus when it comes to overall tech strategy, and how the top staffing firms are making it happen in 2023.

Get ready to get together with the brightest minds in the staffing community this fall. Review the agenda, make your travel plans, and then visit for more information and to register at the best available rate—after Aug. 25, rates will increase by up to $400 per attendee.
