Schaumburg, Ill. (October 28, 2019) – Assurance, the 35th largest insurance brokerage in the U.S., was honored with the 2019 American Staffing Association Care Award. The American Staffing Association national awards program recognizes outstanding social responsibility initiatives, (i.e. business processes that produce an overall positive effect on society) among ASA member staffing agencies and associate members. 

Assurance was recognized for the award at a ceremony during the Staffing World® 2019 conference on October 17 in Las Vegas. The ASA Staffing World conference is the largest, most comprehensive learning and networking event in the staffing and recruiting industry.

Diane Poljak, senior vice president and staffing practice leader commented on the recognition: 

We’re honored to be recognized by the American Staffing Association for our continued corporate social responsibility efforts. As Assurance continues to expand, our passion to positively impact our clients, business partners, community and employees will always be at the forefront. 

  The American Staffing Association recognized Assurance for its corporate social responsibility initiatives stemming from the Assurance Caring Together (ACT) program established in 2005. ACT’s mission is to “inspire hope in local communities by becoming actively involved and developing meaningful partnerships with charitable organizations.” After 14 years, ACT is now considered one of the cornerstones of Assurance and its culture. 

Assurance is proud to report several inspiring accomplishments from over the years: 

  • 90% of employees take their annual paid day off to volunteer
  • 25,000+ labor hours provided to local organizations
  • $1.3 million donated to ACT charity partners
  • Through ACT, two educational scholarships have been endowed at local universities
