What is National Staffing Employee Week?
Organizations big and small work with staffing companies to find skilled contract and temporary workers to fill positions in a myriad of fields and sectors. National Staffing Employee Week was established by the American Staffing Association to honor the millions of Americans who are employed by staffing firms, and is held September 15-21 this year.
