The American Staffing Association today announced that Scott Bicksler, lead safety manager with Aerotek in Rockford, IL, is the 2020 ASA Volunteer of the Year. Bicksler was honored during Staffing World®, the association’s annual convention and expo, a virtual event in 2020, Oct. 19‒22.
The ASA Volunteer of the Year program, launched in 2016, recognizes an individual who is an outstanding contributor on an ASA committee, section council, state network, task force, or working group. The recipient is selected through nominations from volunteer peers.
Bicksler is currently co-chairman of the ASA employee safety committee, which he joined in 2013. He also is a volunteer with California Staffing Professionals, an ASA-affiliated chapter.
In addition to giving back to ASA, Bicksler is a member of the services sector council of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Occupational Research Agenda, which helps stimulate innovative research and improved workplace practices.
“ASA commends Scott for his outstanding contributions to the association and the U.S. staffing and recruiting industry in the critical area of worker safety,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “During his eight years as a volunteer, Scott has shown us all his passion and commitment to workplace safety. His vast experience with the staffing industry and deep knowledge of best practices in safety and risk mitigation—as well as his industry advocacy with regulators at the state and federal levels—have won the respect of his colleagues and ASA staff who view him as an excellent leader of the employee safety committee.”
