Staffing Industry Analysts Celebrates 25 Years as Global Advisor on Contingent Work

Mountain View, Calif. – March 17, 2014 – As the leading global advisor on contingent work, Staffing Industry Analysts celebrates 25 years of providing business intelligence, expert advisory and access to the most independent and accurate research available about the contingent workforce to thousands of decision makers who supply and buy temporary staffing.

In 1989, Peter Yessne started Staffing Industry Analysts in the spare bedroom of his Cupertino, CA home.  Yessne realized there was a void in the staffing industry and a need for comprehensive and extensive research. In 2008, Staffing Industry Analysts was acquired by Crain Communications Inc, a $200M media conglomerate and one of the nation’s largest privately owned business media companies.

Twenty five years of experience has transformed Staffing Industry Analysts from a new venture into a successful company serving both staffing companies and corporate buyers of temporary labor. The company’s customers consist of over 12,000 staffing executives in more than 80 countries. Today, the company has over 40 employees at the Mountain View, CA headquarters and London, England office, with Barry Asin serving as president. The company’s offerings, over the course of 25 years, have expanded to include comprehensive subscription research services for both staffing companies and corporate buyers of contingent labor, six domestic and international conferences, staffing and buyer webinars, newsletters, a monthly magazine, and a certification program for contingent workforce professionals.

“Peter Yessne started Staffing Industry Analysts 25 years ago with a philosophy and commitment to provide top-quality research across the entire industry landscape,” said Barry Asin, president of Staffing Industry Analysts. “Our 25th anniversary is a tremendous milestone for the company. As we look to the next 25 years we will continue to focus on creating an evolving and unmatched suite of research and services that the staffing and talent engagement ecosystem will rely on to guide their most complex business decisions.”
