ASA Opens Its Professional Awards Season

Online Submissions Now Being Accepted Through May 1

The American Staffing Association is now accepting submissions for its prestigious professional recognition programs—the ASA Care Awards, the ASA Elevate Awards, and the National Staffing Employee of the Year.

The deadline for all ASA award program submissions has been moved to earlier in the year: May 1.

  • ASA Care Awards: Recognize ASA members-both staffing agencies and industry suppliers-that have made outstanding efforts in the area of social responsibility. Any initiative active at the time of submission is eligible, and there is no fee to enter. An online application and supporting materials that visually tell the story of the program’s success (e.g., videos, photos, infographics, websites, and media coverage) are required. The ASA Care Awards are now being held on a biennial basis.
  • ASA Elevate Awards: Honor outstanding, innovative, and effective work-based learning programs that train, reskill, and upskill temporary and contract employees. An online application and supporting materials that visually highlight the program or initiative (e.g., videos, photos, infographics, websites, and media coverage) are required. An online application is required and there is no fee to enter.
  • National Staffing Employee of the Year: Honors an individual who is an outstanding performer and exemplifies the promise of staffing employment. Finalists, called “All-Stars,” are also recognized-if merited-in five industry sectors: engineering, information technology, and scientific; health care; industrial; office?clerical and administrative; and professional?managerial. To qualify for nomination, the temporary or contract employee must have worked through an ASA member staffing agency sometime since May 1, 2018. An online application is required and there is no fee to enter.

The ASA Genius Awards, recognizing the best and most innovative communications and marketing campaigns among ASA member staffing agencies, are now held on a biennial basis. ASA will host the next competition in 2020.

ASA award honorees receive myriad marketing benefits to help differentiate themselves from the competition. Winners will be celebrated during Staffing World® 2019, Oct. 15–17 in Las Vegas, and featured in ASA publications, on the ASA website, and via national news media outreach and social media campaigns. Recipients can promote their accomplishments by using special award logos, template news releases, and more.
