Tell ASA: What Staffing Industry Resources Do You Use?

Are you getting what you need from your association? To help ensure that members are getting the most useful tools and resources, ASA would like to better understand what resources and other tools you use to keep up-to-date and stay engaged within the staffing industry.

Last week, ASA sent staffing professionals a link to a questionnaire, which should take only five minutes to complete.

In appreciation of your input, when you submit your responses you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards (or have a charitable donation made on your behalf). Responses are due this Friday, March 20.

If you have any questions or did not receive a survey link, contact the ASA research team at research@americanstaffing.net.
