Each of the candidates nominated had amazing personal stories and their respective staffing agencies made it clear that they feel honored to be part of those stories. The stories were wonderful examples of how the agencies are serving as the bridge that is helping these candidates overcome their personal challenges and unique circumstances and helping them gain meaningful employment. As a collective state-wide industry, we put over 355,000 people to work annually and daily over 68,000 workers – and this group of nominees are absolutely the reason we go to work every day!
As we put a close to National Staffing Employee Week 2023, we want to thank all the agencies that nominated candidates and attended the NSEW banquet. It is a week where we celebrate YOUR hard work, along with that of your organizations’ temporary and contract employees. The week concluded with the awards banquet. The event is a great chance to get together as an industry to also recognize the amazing contributions your agency makes and gently remind you that your daily efforts can be meaningful and even life-changing to the employees you put to work every day.
Thank you to each agency represented at the awards dinner – Site Staffing, Seek Careers/Staffing, QPS Employment, PS Companies, Parallel Employment Group, Halpin Personnel, Hatch Staffing and Celerity Staffing Solutions. And a big thank you to each of you for your donations to NSEW raffle – each nominee received a raffle prize which made the night that much more exciting!
Additional gratitude to Assurance Agency for your 23rd year of sponsoring this event. Thank you for this long-standing dedication to WASS and specifically the NSEW event. We are fortunate to have a partner like Assurance and a sponsor who helps make these events happen.
This event was about showcasing the nominees and their remarkable stories. But remember, it is because of you – our WASS Members and your agency employees - who get up and go to work every day without looking to be recognized that are the bridge! It is YOU that first recognizes the spark and potential in people. It is YOU that truly makes the difference - and it matters in our communities! You should be proud of what you do every day!
Thank you – and already looking forward to NSEW Week 2024 next September!
