Christian Howell And Jessica Newville Earn CSP and TSC
Certifications Help Adams & Garth Deliver Superior Staffing Solutions

Charlottesville, VA – Adams and Garth is pleased to announce that Christian Howell, Director of Business Development, and Jessica Newville, Branch Manager, both recently earned their CSP (Certified Staffing Professional) and TSC (Technical Services Certified) Certifications through the American Staffing Association.

The CSP program enhances staffing professionals’ competency and knowledge of state and federal labor and employment law. The TSC program builds upon the CSP program, by reviewing labor and employment law as it applies to technical, IT, and scientific staffing. To earn these certifications, both Howell and Newville had to pass an online test administered by the American Staffing Association. The ASA is a national organization which promotes legal, ethical, and professional practices for the United States staffing industry.

Christian Howell feels his hard work has paid off. “The CSP and TSC certifications have helped deepen my industry knowledge. As a result, I’m even better equipped to reduce clients’ employment risks, explain co-employment obligations, and protect both candidate and employee rights. Bottom line, these certifications have made me a better staffing professional.”

Newville, who was recently promoted to Branch Manager, says the certifications helped her develop specialized skills that prepared her for her role in management. “With my new responsibilities, I want to do everything I can to stay on top of the latest developments in labor and employment law. The knowledge I’ve gained by obtaining these certifications will undoubtedly help me deliver even better service to my clients.”

“At Adams and Garth, we recognize the value of ongoing training and education. Simply put, ASA certification translates into better service – for our clients and candidates alike,” says Lee Witherow, President of Adams and Garth Staffing Solutions. “The more our managers know about employment and labor laws, the more adept they’ll be at delivering expert advice and superior staffing solutions.”
