Beginning in 1966 as Washington, DC-based Institute of Temporary Services, the American Staffing Association (ASA) was set up to serve as a strong national voice on the distinct attributes of the staffing business, and to educate policymakers on the same. It has been on a mission to work for the interests of the industry by way of advocacy, research, education, and the promotion of professional practices, along with encouraging flexible employment opportunities. ASA promotes legal, ethical, and professional practices, and its members agree to comply with a strict code of ethics guiding their operations and interactions with clients and employees.
