National Staffing Employee of the Year
ASA announces the National Staffing Employee of the Year, one outstanding temporary or contract employee chosen from the ranks of member firms, on the first day of National Staffing Employee Week—Sept. 19 this year.
This annual program honors a current or former employee who best exemplifies one or more of the staffing industry’s key messages of “bridge” (ability to bridge or transition from temporary to permanent jobs) and “flexibility” (work schedule flexibility).
This year and for the first time, ASA will recognize finalists—if merited—in each industry sector: engineering, information technology, and scientific; health care; industrial; office-clerical and administrative; and professional-managerial. Nominations for the 2016 program are now closed.
