National Staffing Employee of the Year

The annual National Staffing Employee of the Year program honors a current or former temporary or contract employee who best exemplifies one or more of the staffing industry's key messages—bridge and flexibility.

The 2019 National Staffing Employee of the Year and his or her member company will be announced to ASA members, the public, and the news media during National Staffing Employee Week, Sept. 24–30, and will be recognized during an award ceremony at Staffing World 2018, Oct. 16-18, in metro Washington, DC.

ASA also recognizes finalists—if merited—in each industry sector: health care; industrial; office-clerical and administrative; professional-managerial; and engineering, information technology, and scientific.
