ASA honored three staffing agencies with 2022 Elevate Awards, the organization announced today, for workforce development programs that promote equity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers and registered apprenticeships for transitioning service members, veterans, and their families.
Created in 2018, the Elevate Awards celebrate the staffing industry’s most innovative and effective workforce development programs for temporary and contract employees. Award classes are determined by company revenue.
“Staffing companies have a front-row seat to the pressing needs of businesses who are unable to source qualified labor as a result of the growing skills gap crisis within the labor market,” said Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer of ASA. “Our Elevate Awards winners have developed innovative, dynamic, and multifaceted job training, retraining, and upskilling programs that are opening doors for workers across the country.”
