ASA Social Responsibility Initiatives

As the nation’s leading advocate for legal, ethical, and professional practices for the staffing industry, it’s only natural that ASA should take a leadership role in social responsibility for the industry as well. Some of the ways that ASA directly influences social responsibility are described below.

ASA is proud to support the Global Principles for Socially Responsible Associations and Nonprofits. These principles are intended to promote sustainable development and good corporate citizenship among the members of the association community. The principles, which are based on universally accepted principles contained in the United Nations Global Compact, help create a network of associations, nonprofit organizations, and industry partners that can exchange ideas and best practices.

The Staffing Diversity Self-Assessment

Diversity is a key element of social responsibility. Your staffing firm is a truly inclusive business when you integrate diversity into your operations, and include and respect the range of attributes that each employee contributes to your workplace.

A self-assessment can help your staffing firm prioritize goals when building a diversity program. You can identify key areas to consider in your diversity efforts with our self-assessment tool.

ASA Social Responsibility Committee

Companies that have successful social responsibility programs often have champions at the board or executive level. The mission of the ASA social responsibility committee is to demonstrate the commitment of ASA and its members to social responsibility, to promote best practices within the staffing industry, and to recognize special accomplishments by ASA members.

The ASA social responsibility committee has a diversity subcommittee, which works to demonstrate the commitment of ASA and its members to diversity, to promote and educate about diversity within the staffing industry, and to recognize accomplishments with respect to diversity among ASA members.

Social responsibility programs and initiatives vary, and each can present unique legal issues. The material on the ASA website is informational in nature only and is not intended as legal advice. Social responsibility programs and initiatives should be carefully crafted and should be implemented with guidance and advice from legal counsel.
