What Kind of People Person Are You?

If you work in staffing, then you’re a people person—also known as a “Happy Staffy.” Take a fun, brief online quiz to find out what kind of Happy Staffy you are. You’ll receive a detailed profile with your key traits, emerging opportunities, and additional resources.

Use the hashtags #myHappyStaffy and #StaffingWorld when you share your Happy Staffy on social media. Take the quiz now.
