Your Industry, Your Impact: Last Chance to Participate in the ASA Quarterly Survey

The association’s quarterly Staffing Employment and Sales Survey for the second quarter of 2023 is now open. Staffing companies that complete the brief survey—including search and placement firms—will have access to an exclusive report on the results, enhanced with graphs. The report, which participants can download from the ASA website, also includes an executive summary, plus sales category and sector-level data.

The data collected by this survey enable ASA to track staffing sales and gross margin trends and provide direct hire metrics. Participate in the Staffing Employment and Sales Survey at by next Friday, Aug. 25, to get the staffing industry information you’re looking for. There are no fees to participate.
