SAN DIEGO, CA – August 14, 2014 – The American Staffing Association honored Innovative Employee Solutions with a 2014 ASA Care Award in the staffing firms with $25 million – $100 million annual sales category. This national award recognizes outstanding corporate responsibility initiatives – business processes that produce an overall positive effect on society – among ASA member staffing companies, associate members, and affiliated chapters. Innovative Employee Solutions was honored for its Community Outreach Initiative.

“We are proud and honored to receive this meaningful award,” said Peter Limone, President and CFO of IES. “The leadership and employees of IES are dedicated to giving back to our community, and to upholding IES’s core value of corporate citizenship. I’m grateful to ASA for this recognition, and proud of our team for the generosity of time and spirit they displayed in exceeding our company community service goals.”

The ASA Care Awards honor corporate responsibility initiatives that involve employee training and professional development, community engagement, green business practices, philanthropy, and more. A panel of corporate social responsibility experts selects the winners. ASA Care Awards winners will be honored October 13 at Staffing World 2014, the ASA convention and expo, in metro Washington.

“The ASA Care Awards annually honor the best corporate social responsibility programs in the U.S. staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry, and we are delighted to extend this honor to Innovative Employee Solutions for its employee volunteer efforts and community outreach program,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA President and CEO. “Not only does ASA salute IES for its contributions in support of the interest of the YWCA, American Cancer Society, and Junior Achievement, but also for advancing the importance of corporate social responsibility among fellow members of the staffing industry.”
