ASA Honors Most Outstanding Workforce Development Programs in Staffing and Recruiting Industry

ASA has announced the recipients of its annual workforce development-based Elevate Awards. Distributed on an annual basis since 2018, the Elevate Awards celebrate the staffing industry’s most innovative and effective workforce development for temporary and contract employees. Both the Elevate Awards and honorable mention distinctions are conferred in award classes by company revenue.

“Staffing companies are on the front lines of providing upskilling and reskilling programs to American workers to enhance their employability and help ensure future career success,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “The Elevate Awards recognize some of the staffing industry’s most innovative and successful workforce development programs aimed at addressing current workforce shortages and skills gaps.”
