ASA Joins Global Challenge to Promote Covid-19 Vaccine Literacy

As part of its efforts to lead employer vaccine literacy in the staffing and recruiting industry, the American Staffing Association accepted the Global Covid-19 Workplace Challenge from Business Partners to CONVINCE (COVID-19 New Vaccine Information, Communication, and Engagement). The challenge was launched last month to promote Covid-19 vaccine acceptance among private sector employers and workers.

“ASA is committed to providing resources to member staffing agencies in support of Covid-19 vaccine literacy as this education is absolutely critical in getting people back to work safely and improving the economy in the U.S. and around the globe,” said Brittany Sakata, Esq., ASA associate general counsel. “ASA encourages its members to follow the association’s lead and join the Business Partners to CONVINCE Global Covid-19 Workplace Challenge to show their dedication to vaccine literacy in their own companies.”
