Until Friday, Aug. 20, the American Staffing Association is offering free data to any staffing firm that participates in its inaugural Sector Benchmarking Survey. The survey covers temporary, contract, and direct hire placements in the following industry sectors—health care; industrial; office-clerical; professional; and technical, IT, and scientific.
By taking 15 to 20 minutes to share your staffing firm’s data, you’ll receive a complimentary full survey report if you’re an ASA member, while nonmembers will receive an executive summary of the key findings with an option to purchase the full report at a 50% discount.
Sample metrics collected in the survey include:
- Turnover of sales, recruiting, and customer service employees
- Assignment billing and pay rates by sector
- Daily employee placements by company size
- Data on gross margins and profit margins by sector
You can even review the questions prior to starting the survey. Just go to www.americanstaffing.net/sectionsurvey to download a PDF of the questions or to start the survey.
The information you submit is completely confidential. The survey is administered by Inavero, an ASA corporate partner and market research firm, and ASA only receives and reports aggregate data.
If you have questions about the survey, contact Amalea Híjar, ASA senior manager, sections, at 703-253-1171 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
