Get Your Awards Entries Ready—Earn Recognition and Differentiate Your Firm

Earn national recognition for your company—and leverage that recognition to differentiate your firm in your most competitive markets—by earning accolades from your association.

Being named as one of the best in the industry is a valuable tool your company can use to sell to clients and engage with talent. ASA is now accepting applications for National Staffing Employee of the Year and ASA Elevate Awards.

The National Staffing Employee of the Year program celebrates temporary and contract employees who are outstanding performers and exemplify 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. Sponsored by StaffPRO3, a division of PMC Insurance Group.

The ASA Elevate Awards honor outstanding, innovative, and effective work-based learning programs that train, reskill, and upskill temporary and contract employees.

The deadline for all ASA award program submissions is May 1. To learn more and apply, visit

ASA Publishes Sample Staffing Agreement Amendment for Remote Work Arrangements

In light of the novel Coronavirus, staffing clients are allowing or directing temporary workers to work from home or at locations away from the clients’ places of business. To help staffing firms memorialize the parties’ respective responsibilities in such arrangements, ASA has published a sample Amendment to Staffing Agreement—Remote Work Arrangements.

Drafted with the assistance of Jason B. Klimpl, Esq., and Andrew P. Yacyshyn, Esq., of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP, the amendment is intended for use where a written contract with the client already exists. Staffing firms should review the sample amendment with their legal counsel and modify it accordingly.
