Upcoming Events

Break Out of the Employment Law Escape Room at Staffing World 2020

Staffing World® 2020 takes place Oct. 19–22—right on your computer or other device. This year, the ASA annual convention and expo will be an immersive virtual experience where you can connect with staffing peers and get resources you can use to grow your business during more than 30 educational sessions, including “Employment Law Escape Room.”

During this special session, you and your peers are locked in a virtual room as you test your knowledge of the current legal environment. You must work together to determine the correct outcomes for legal case studies, collect clues, and solve puzzles to escape in time to join the next session at Staffing World—attorneys will be standing by to help if needed.

Plan to attend this special industry event Oct. 19–22. ASA-certified professionals can earn continuing education hours by participating in workshops and other content sessions. Get more information and register online at

Resources on Diverse-Owned Businesses Available for ASA Members

Staffing companies—particularly small businesses and minority-, veteran-, LGBT-, and woman-owned businesses—find they may be able to partner with larger companies that have supplier diversity initiatives in place.

The ASA inclusion, diversity, equity, and advocacy (IDEA) group has developed guidance for ASA members interested in partnering with those companies or in becoming a diverse-owned certified business.

Visit for a directory of diversity certification organizations, a glossary of common terms, and more.
