HireLevel, headquartered in St. Louis, MO won the 2018 American Staffing Association (ASA) Care Award for their social responsibility initiative #HireLevelDifference in the award class of Staffing Firms with $25 million – $100 million in annual sales.

The 2018 ASA Care Award, a national awards program, honors companies with exceptional social responsibility initiatives; working for the greater good.  The 2018 Care Award winners will be featured at Staffing World in October 2018 in Washington, DC as well as in ASA publications, in news releases, and social media.

HireLevel’s President & CEO, Teresa Katubig is proud to receive this award saying “Our HireLevel Difference initiative wasn’t designed for recognition it was meant to get our team excited about really owning their impact and making a difference in the communities around them. The success of this initiative means we’ve done just that; we’ve owned our impact and made a difference along the way. I couldn’t be more proud of my team.”

The #HireLevelDifference was established to promote social responsibility, company culture, and candidate/client experience. The initiative connects individuals with the company mission and key results; putting a “bigger than yourself” purpose behind their day-to-day tasks. It has proven effective in engaging employees not only at work but also in the communities we work and live. 

HireLevel’s company culture has evolved with the #HireLevelDifference. Team members are truly passionate about what the initiative stands for and on board with growing our culture in this direction. All employees participate in at least one if not all facets of the #HireLevelDifference which include personal and career development, opportunities for employees to serve their communities through both volunteering and monetary donations; and training, resources, and partnerships to deliver an extraordinary experience to our candidates and clients.

Since active, $23,000 has been donated by over 80% of employees, 35% of employees have gone through the Leadership Program; candidate placements have increased by 17% from 6,000 in 2016; we are on track to increase candidate placements by 30% since 2017 by year end; internal turnover has decreased by 35% and the team has grown by over 50 people since 2016.  

The #HireLevelDifference is communicated through press releases, social media using the hashtag, check presentations, client and candidate engagement stories, benefits packages, company state of the union, and daily internal communication.
