ASA Elevate Awards

The ASA Elevate Awards recognize outstanding, innovative, and effective work-based learning programs that train, reskill, and upskill temporary and contract talent.

ASA members are creatively handing the skills gap, lack of qualified talent, and too many open requisitions with a focus on enhancing the skills of their current workforce. Is your company a trailblazer in this area and deserving of national recognition?

The deadline for submissions is now closed.

ASA Elevate Awards Entry Form

Any skills development program developed and managed by an ASA member staffing agency for temporary or contract employees is eligible. Initiatives must demonstrate clear goals and results for enhancing productivity and improving the company’s value proposition for candidates, employees, and clients. The programs do not have to be launched in the current calendar year—they can be long-term, successful programs.

The competition is open only to the headquarters of active ASA staffing agency members. Members that own more than one staffing company may submit entries for each company marketed under a separate name that has its own budget and program.


The deadline for submissions for the ASA Elevate Awards has now passed. There is no fee to enter the ASA Elevate Awards program.
