ASA Awards Season Is Here: Earn Recognition for Your Staffing Stars and Job Training Programs

Gain national recognition for your company—and leverage that recognition to differentiate your firm in your most competitive markets—by participating in the American Staffing Association’s prestigious professional recognition programs. ASA is now accepting applications for the ASA Elevate Awards and National Staffing Employee of the Year. The deadline for applications is May 1.

  • The ASA Elevate Awards recognize outstanding, innovative, and effective work-based learning programs that train, reskill, and upskill temporary and contract talent.
  • The National Staffing Employee of the Year and Sector All-Stars program honors individuals nominated by ASA member companies who best exemplify one or more of the staffing industry’s key messages—bridge and flexibility—as well as employees who used staffing to access new careers. New this year: National Staffing Employee of the Year All-Star finalists will now be announced prior to the winners.

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. To learn more and submit a nomination, visit
