When SIA launched the Global Power 150 — Women In Staffing list in 2015, it was to raise the visibility of women in the industry by showcasing their contributions. Why? Despite the fact there are large numbers of women in the ecosystem, the numbers of females in the C-suite and boardroom are pitifully small. Our […]

The last nine months have seen a global pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, the run-up to the 2020 presidential election and the California wildfires — just to mention a few of the major events. Hitting one’s numbers has not been a priority. In fact, it’s been about staying afloat.

You’ve been hearing about record-low unemployment numbers on the news.

It’s no longer about the talent gap but the talent crisis. In this economy, creating new models of work and placing people in them is challenging to say the least. So, kudos to the 2020 Staffing 100 honorees for taking our industry forward in these turbulent […]

Why is there so much buzz around the Global Power 150 — Women In Staffing list? While there is enthusiasm about all the SIA Who’s Who lists, I have to concede that there is a little extra frenzy when it comes to this particular one.

Perhaps because on the one hand, it’s about promoting gender equality […]

I love ending the year on a high. But it’s important to note we also started with a bang. The first issue of 2018 included the North America Staffing 100 honorees and now, we close the year with the Global Power 150 — Women in Staffing issue, featuring profiles of the Americas 100.

My team and […]
