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? Enter the ASA Elevate Awards.
Any skills development program developed and managed by an ASA member staffing firm 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 firm 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.
All entries must be received by July 1. There is no fee to enter the ASA Elevate Awards program.
Submissions will compete in one of four award classes based on company annual sales:
- Staffing firm with less than $7.5 million in annual sales
- Staffing firm with $7.5 million—$25 million in annual sales
- Staffing firm with $25 million—$100 million in annual sales
- Staffing firm with more than $100 million in annual sales
