Get Your Entries Ready for Care and Elevate Awards and National Staffing Employee of the Year

ASA is now accepting submissions for its prestigious awards programs—ASA Care Awards, ASA Elevate Awards, and the ASA National Staffing Employee of the Year and Sector All-Stars. The deadline for all submissions is May 1, and there are no fees to enter.

The ASA Care Awards honor effective social responsibility initiatives in the staffing industry. These initiatives serve local communities as well as drive employee engagement. The ASA Elevate Awards recognize outstanding, innovative, and effective work-based learning programs that train, reskill, and upskill temporary and contract employees. National Staffing Employee of the Year (sponsored by StaffPRO3, a division of PMC Insurance Group) is an outstanding temporary or contract employee who exemplifies the promise of staffing employment.

Gain national recognition for your company, and then leverage that recognition to differentiate your firm in your most competitive markets. Being named as among the best in the industry is a valuable tool your company can use to sell to and engage with clients and talent.

Award recipients will be celebrated during Staffing World® 2021, Sept. 28–30 in Denver; featured in ASA publications; and spotlighted on the ASA website, in national news media outreach, and in social media campaigns. Recipients can promote their accomplishments by using special award logos, template news releases, and additional marketing resources.
