What is alternative staffing?

Alternative staffing enterprises deliver competitive staffing services that connect employers with qualified, motivated talent while supporting thousands of marginalized job seekers to enter the labor market and achieve their employment goals.

Value to Employers

Employers cite four reasons they prefer using alternative staffing suppliers: better understanding of their business needs and priorities, higher quality screening and matching, greater responsiveness, and worker supports that improve performance and reliability.

Opportunities for Job Seekers

Temporary staffing is the fastest growing segment of the workforce and a key pathway to employment. Temporary placements offer job seekers a way to build their resume, develop skills and self confidence, and demonstrate their reliability and value to potential employers

Returns to Funders

Alternative Staffing Organizations (ASOs) leverage foundation and government grants with fee revenues from employers, lowering the cost to serve job seekers compared with other transitional employment.
