Luchsinger Named American Staffing Association’s Volunteer of the Year

SEEK Careers/Staffing Inc. vice president Sara Luchsinger, CSP, has been named the 2023 American Staffing Association Volunteer of the Year. This prestigious recognition celebrates the Wisconsin native and Lakeland University alumna’s remarkable dedication to advancing the staffing industry and her selfless contributions to her peers and the community.

Over the course of two decades, Luchsinger has been an active and influential figure within the staffing community. Her leadership has been instrumental to several ASA volunteer groups, including the women in leadership group council, education and certification committee, and social responsibility committee. In addition to being a valued mentor in the ASA Mentor Match program, she serves on both the industrial section council and the staffing technology task force.

“Sara’s dedication and passion for advancing the interests of people, organizations, and communities—and particularly her emphasis on empowering women—exemplify the spirit of our association.,” said Richard Wahlquist, chief executive officer at the American Staffing Association. “Sara’s dedication to uplifting fellow staffing professionals and tireless efforts to drive positive change are inspiring to everyone who knows her.”
