ClearlyRated, CareerBuilder, and ASA have developed a uniquely important survey to gauge staffing industry trends and strategies affecting companies like yours in 2020 and beyond. This 10–15 minute survey seeks input from staffing professionals at all levels on topics such as

  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion trends in the staffing industry
  • Covid-19’s impact on the staffing industry
  • Threats and opportunities facing staffing firms
  • Training and career pathing for all employees
  • Employee attraction and retention
