PHILADELPHIA—August 16, 2010—Yoh, a provider of talent and outsourcing services, today announced that the company has won three Staffing VOICE Awards from the American Staffing Association (ASA). Yoh was honored with an Award of Merit in Social Media, an Award of Excellence in Company Identification and an Award of Excellence in Company Blog for the The Seamless Workforce.
“Our company prides itself on its ability to provide insightful and relevant advice to our customers,” says Lori Schultz, President of Yoh. “Through our integrated branding and social media campaigns, we have been able to leverage the expertise of Yoh executives and employees and initiate thoughtful discussion on relevant employment and workforce management topics.”
The Seamless Workforce was launched in April 2009 to provide a forum to discuss the changing makeup of the workforce and identify strategies, processes, services and technologies to help businesses make optimal use of their talent supply chain.
“The composition of the workforce has changed dramatically in the past 24 months,” adds Schultz. “Throughout this transformation, we have strived to provide our customers and other readers with information on the latest economic trends and legislative decisions, explore how these events are impacting hiring practices and workforce management, and offer tried and true advice for optimizing their talent supply chains and workforces. We’re looking forward to continuing to follow these trends and share this insight with our readers.”
The American Staffing Association Staffing VOICE Awards competition recognizes the best vision, originality, innovation, creativity, and effectiveness of ASA member communications campaigns in sixteen categories, from direct mail to public service. The awards emphasize the voice, originality, innovation, creativity, and effectiveness—or VOICE—of ASA member communications campaigns. In the past six years, Yoh has received 22 Staffing VOICE Awards.
A panel of communications experts judges the entries in two award classes, for independent and national staffing firms, on general appeal and overall quality, content and message, originality of approach, target audience, objectives and results. Awards will be displayed during Staffing World 2010, being held Oct. 12-15 in Las Vegas, and will be published in the November-December issue of Staffing Success.
