Advanced Group Wins American Staffing Association’s Award for Outstanding Communications and Marketing Program

CHICAGO, IL – SEPTEMBER 28, 2017 – Advanced Group has won a 2017 American Staffing Association Genius Award in the social media campaign category. The nation-wide awards program recognizes the most innovative communications and marketing campaigns among ASA member staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions organizations.

Advanced Group, a diversified professional staffing, consulting, and outsourcing organization, was honored for its Social Selling Campaign. The objective of the campaign was to leverage the organization’s social media presence, assist in the development of employees’ personal brands, and increase exposure for the Advanced Group brands. To accomplish these objectives, a social selling strategy was implemented and facilitated through an employee advocacy platform.

After three short months, 28% of the workforce was engaged on the platform with a combined audience reach to more than 83,000. As a result of Advanced Group’s thorough training, the organization’s average number of social shares per user and average social engagement per share were better than the platform’s benchmarks by 338% and 215%, respectively.

A panel of communications and marketing experts selected the honorees based on the overall quality of campaign messaging, design and visual appeal, originality of approach, and outcomes.
