Welcome to all Independent Staffing Firms from the United States Staffing Association!
I am pleased to have been asked to represent the U.S.S.A. as President. Let me share with you more about U.S.S.A., what we represent, and our goals for this association.
U.S.S.A. is a National Association that represents only Independent Staffing firms. Many owners of Independent Staffing firms have asked for their own association that will provide the latest information on metrics within the industry, opportunities for cost-effective, cutting-edge training, opportunities to partner to enhance capabilities and compete with national firms, discounted pricing on needed services, and a sounding board on issues affecting our industry.
Recruiting and Staffing Solutions Magazine has been a fresh voice and resource to the Staffing Industry for over 5 years. The principals have worked for and within the Staffing Industry for over 18 years.
Please understand that I do not view the U.S.S.A. as competing with the other leading Staffing Associations. I have been a member of various Staffing Associations for over 15 years. I am currently a member of another Staffing Association Education Committee and appreciate all that this continues to do to provide information, services, and a voice in Washington for the Staffing Industry. Yet many Independent Staffing Firms see a need for an association in which they have a voice and that they control.
The Staffing Industry continues to be vibrant and growing. When reviewing growth rates for the industry, Independents have tremendous opportunities to grow in almost every market within the United States. We have flexibility to make decisions and respond to our client base quickly, with innovative ideas to enhance our client's bottom line. We can improve our employees' standards of living by being their career agent and providing opportunities that provide them ongoing career growth. Our charge at U.S.S.A. is to provide you with the latest information, training, service offerings, and partnering opportunities.
Please consider joining me in this opportunity for a collective voice for Independent Staffing firms across the United States. I wish you continued success this year and the years to come!
Sincerely, Crystal E. Blackwell, CSP
