Staffing Agencies: As Diverse as America


IDEA Group

As employers of millions of workers across the nation, staffing agencies uniquely embrace America’s diversity. Our workforce includes every race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, and identity. We celebrate diversity because it helps make our companies, our employees, and the clients we serve stronger and more successful.

ASA recognizes that efforts to increase diversity have a powerful and positive effect on the workforce. For firms looking to develop a deeper understanding of diversity supplier initiatives and strategies for inclusion, ASA has developed this content exclusively for its staffing professional members. In 2020, ASA launched the IDEA Interest Group. Visit the interest group community on ASA Central and begin networking with your fellow peers!
