Individuals in contingent workforce management stepped up last year to not only tackle the myriad of unprecedented challenges of operating amid a global pandemic, but also to — as SIA President Barry Asin says — build back better . SIA is now accepting nominations  to recognize these individuals on our fourth annual CW Program Game Changers list.
We are looking for the pioneers, the game-changers, at the forefront of the changing world of work. The list is not a ranking, but rather a way to honor professionals working in contingent workforce management roles around the globe, and to particularly recognize those pushing the space forward and breaking new ground.
To qualify, a candidate must be an employee of the buyer/enterprise organization. Examples of professionals who would be eligible include, but are not necessarily limited to: a VP of HR sponsoring the program, an individual in the finance department responsible for program compliance, head of talent acquisition accountable for managing the contingent workforce or a procurement guru whose team handles the staff augmentation and statement-of-work contracts. Program sponsors such as the CFO or the CEO who are not directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the program are not eligible, nor are employees of an MSP working onsite at the buyer organization.
Please note: For jointly managed programs, we ask for individual nominations per manager; team nominations will not be accepted.
The nomination survey for the 2021 list, sponsored by KellyOCG, is now open. Submit your nominations online . Nominations close June 25.
The list will be published Sept. 15 in the CWS 3.0 e-newsletter and at cwgamechangers.staffingindustry.com .
