Understand How Candidates Feel About Their Job Search

According to a study by ASA and its corporate research partner ClearlyRated, active and passive job seekers anticipate working for a new company in the coming year. The Candidate Sentiment Study sheds light on candidates’ perceptions regarding how they look for jobs (online vs. offline resources), the reasons they decide to leave a job, and their experiences partnering with staffing agencies―with distinct differences reported among generations, industry sectors, races/ethnicities, and genders.

ASA Offers Vaccine Literacy Resources for Staffing Firms

As part of its continued effort to support staffing firms’ response to Covid-19, ASA developed the Vaccine Literacy Resources for Staffing Firms webpage. The site provides valuable downloads and links employers can use to engage and educate workers about Covid-19 vaccines. Research shows that businesses and employers are a trusted source of information and are well-suited to advance vaccine literacy efforts. The new ASA site also links to National Safety Council resources, developed by NSC’s “SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns” task force.

ASA partnered with the Health Action Alliance to share these free resources, including a quick-start guide, sample communications, vaccine FAQs, a social media tool kit, and more—and new resources are added as they become available. Visit the Vaccine Literacy Resources page.
