    In 2011, the American Staffing Association, in conjunction with the World Employment Confederation (formerly Ciett), released a new global report that quantifies how staffing firms provide a bridge to social and economic progress around the world.

The BCG research found that staffing firms improve the efficiency of labor markets, create jobs, increase work force participation, and deliver valuable employment.
