As part of their recent feature on "100 Associations That Will Save the World", Associations Now recently recognized RILA for our work helping our members navigate the coronavirus crisis. Specifically, the magazine highlighted our partnership with the American Staffing Association to help retailers solve for workforce challenges faced during the pandemic.
The article reads:
"When COVID-19 hit, retail businesses that provide critical services—like grocery stores and pharmacies—needed to fill job openings immediately to meet demand. The American Staffing Association and the Retail Industry Leaders Association joined forces to help retailers fill high-demand roles like warehouse workers, cashiers, forklift operators, delivery drivers, and store clerks for stocking, packing, and shipping.
ASA provided an online directory to connect RILA member retailers to ASA member staffing agencies that can marshal needed workers—including those displaced when businesses closed."
RILA is honored to be recognized along with the other associations doing great work on behalf of their members.
