Free ASA State of the Industry Webinar Today

ASA and ClearlyRated, the association’s satisfaction survey partner, will present the second ASA State of the Industry webinar of 2020 today from 3 to 4 p.m. Eastern time.

The session “Fostering Inclusivity: Addressing Internal Staff Morale by Staying Focused, Aware, and Supportive” will look at the new challenges staffing firms are facing right now—a historic drop in employment, a global pandemic, and employee morale in a time of social unrest—and identify ways that employers can help internal employees navigate an emotional and uncertain time while remaining healthy and productive.

All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit americanstaffing.net.
