This national awards program recognizes the most innovative communications and marketing campaigns among ASA member staffing, recruiting and workforce solutions companies.

Achievements in individual categories were recognized with Grand Genius Awards, Genius Awards, and honorable mention distinctions.
PrideStaff's Award-Winning "Superhero" Campaign
True heroes come in all shapes and sizes. To succeed, employers need superhero employees working throughout their organizations and in many different roles. PrideStaff’s “Superhero” campaign provided hiring managers with a guide to recruiting superheroes for their organizations, while giving PrideStaff's sales representatives a structured and differentiated approach to land more appointments.
Designed to be engaging, fun and professional, each step of this eight-week, integrated print campaign targeted a different challenge plaguing hiring managers. From increasing production levels to improving morale, cutting employee turnover to leading innovation, each step offered the hiring manager superhero powers to "save the day" for their company.
PrideStaff sales representatives targeted key decision-makers within the proper accounts, and made in-person drop-offs each week, with the goal of scheduling a more thorough assessment meeting. Each weekly drop-off included: an introduction card; an in-depth article addressing a management or recruiting challenge today's hiring managers face; and a fun, conversation-starting ad-specialty item, such as a superhero figurine.
The campaign was extremely successful. During the first wave alone, twenty percent of campaign recipients agreed to an in-depth meeting. Of those prospects that agreed to a meeting, twenty percent placed an initial job order on the spot, each of which PrideStaff was able to fill.
"We're extremely proud to win a Genius Award this year in the Direct Mail Campaign Print category," said PrideStaff COO, Tammi Heaton. "This award validates our ability to connect clients with the talented 'superheroes' they need to increase production, improve morale and minimize turnover in today's employment market.
"Winning this award is yet another example of how we live out PrideStaff's mission: 'Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,' every day," continued Heaton. "Simply put, we invest in world-class marketing to help hiring managers overcome their hiring and workforce challenges."
