ASA Elevate Awards

Awards Honor Best Work-Based Learning Programs in Staffing Industry

The American Staffing Association today introduced a professional recognition program for member companies—the ASA Elevate Awards. This new program celebrates the most innovative and effective work-based learning programs designed specifically for temporary and contract employees.

“Addressing the skills gap challenge is a top ASA priority for 2018, and many member staffing firms are offering employee skills enhancement programs developed on their own or in partnerships with clients, government agencies, and educational organizations,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “The ASA Elevate Awards will recognize the best of these work-based learning programs and encourage other staffing companies to launch their own programs to help narrow the skills gap in the U.S.”

ASA Elevate Awards will be conferred in four award classes based on company annual sales. ASA member staffing companies must complete an online form and provide supporting digital and/or print materials. There is no fee to enter this awards program. Submissions are due July 1.

Elevate Award honorees will be featured in ASA publications and celebrated at Staffing World 2018, Oct. 16‒18 in metro Washington, DC.
