The way we work has been altered irrevocably in the wake of the pandemic.

Remote work, hybrid models and the Great Resignation are just a few of the developments that have impacted the labor market. Meet this year’s 40 Under 40 class, staffing industry professionals who have helped shape a new world of work. These rising stars have not just helped usher in these monumental changes but are driven to assist people to find the right jobs while leveraging technological advancements to meet market demands and gain new competitive edges for their firms.

Their journeys to staffing are as different as they themselves are. Some had careers before staffing, such as the tech industry, event sales and even the NFL gridiron. Others were recruited straight out of college or had family connections to the industry. Regardless, these professionals are united by a common goal: to help others. It’s this passion that has inspired them to achieve remarkable success in the ecosystem. Enterprising, driven, goal-oriented — the 2022 40 Under 40 are fueled by connecting people with meaningful work or leading through mentorship, empowering their teams to reach their highest potential — and in the process strengthening communities.

The 2022 40 Under 40 list highlights workforce specialists, entrepreneurs, executives, innovators, creators, influencers and more. They have helped shape an industry that is projected by SIA to reach a record $185.5 billion this year — far surpassing the pre-pandemic market size of $152.8 billion in 2019. Careers aside, these trailblazers are also devoting time to their communities, ensuring that their societies flourish. Staffing Industry Analysts is proud to recognize and celebrate this influential cohort in our sixth 40 Under 40 list.

This list is not a ranking. It’s a shout-out to those elevating the industry. The list features 40 professionals, some already well-established, others gaining more attention as they move forward with their contributions to their companies and the industry.
