@StaffingData will offer the latest ASA research survey releases and data updates, including but not limited to
- ASA Staffing Index (weekly)

The social account also will share updates to the interactive ASA Data Dashboard, which offers four key staffing industry metrics in one place—past, present, and future—including weekly tracking, monthly snapshots, quarterly trends, and economic projections.
Staffing companies can follow the new ASA Twitter handle to learn how to participate in ASA research studies to gain access to exclusive, detailed reports to help make strategic, data-driven business decisions.
