Awards and Recognition
American Student Assistance® has been named as one of The Boston Globe's “Top Places to Work 2012”—the fifth year in a row ASA® has received the honor.
The "Top Places to Work" recognizes the most progressive companies in the state based on employee opinions about:
• Company leadership.
• Compensation and training.
• Career development.
• Family-friendly flexibility.
• Values and ethics.
In addition, Boston Business Journal named ASA one of the “Best Places to Work" in both 2008 and 2009. As one associate said in response to that survey, “This company is by far the best place I have ever worked! I thoroughly enjoy my job!”
ASA was also named one of the "50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States" by I Love Rewards, the leader in employee rewards and recognition solutions. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their employees.
PR News honored ASA for its Branding and Employee and Internal Communications surrounding the organization's efforts to engage and train employees on its new educational program for college students and alumni.
