People-Based. Market-Driven.

About the Sector

Alternative staffing is an employment strategy that combines a staffing business model with supportive services to help job seekers with obstacles to employment enter and advance in the workforce. Alternative staffing organizations (ASOs) act as intermediaries between employers and job seekers, helping employers attract and retain reliable, motivated workers and linking job seekers to competitive employment, opportunities for skills development and pathways to hire by employer customers. While ASOs vary in their organizational structures and the populations they seek to recruit and support, they have two common characteristics. All share a market-driven approach to delivering staffing services, and all are deeply rooted in their respective communities, giving them a keen understanding of local industries and the human services ecosystem and enabling them to leverage local connections and resources.
