ASA Celebrates National Apprenticeship Week


The American Staffing Association is proud to join in the celebration of National Apprenticeship Week, beginning today and running through Nov. 20.

“Apprenticeships are critical to solving our country’s ongoing labor shortages and integral to future-proofing the workforce of the future,” said Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer at ASA. “With more than 10 million open jobs in this country, the skills gap crisis is one of the most important issues facing our economy today. ASA member companies are proud to work with companies around the country to open doors to apprenticeship opportunities for all job seekers.”

Throughout the week, the ASA #StaffingElevates campaign will highlight staffing’s best apprenticeship opportunities. For more information on some of staffing’s top apprenticeship programs, click here.
