Staffing Industry Analysts’ inaugural list honoring the trendsetters within contingent workforce management was released today. The list recognizes buyers of staffing services who have made a significant contribution to the management and evolution of contingent workforce programs within their organizations and industrywide.

The list is sponsored by Geometric Results Inc.

List honorees were selected based on the impact and influence each has on the profession, and on the roles they play in elevating the value of the flexible workforce. Forty-eight individuals from around the world were selected for inclusion. The honorees are profiled here.

“These game changers were at the forefront of the changing world of work that involved contingents,” said Subadhra Sriram, editor and publisher, media products, SIA. “From struggling with rogue spend to getting recognition for the field in the boardroom to administering programs with the help of manual systems and processes, these professionals have done what it takes to educate the ecosystem while elevating the space and we are excited to recognize them.”

“We’re thrilled to sponsor the very first Contingent Workforce Program Game Changers awards, the well-deserved recognition for our industry’s forward-thinking enterprise leaders who continue to take the lead in their specific areas of expertise,” said GRI CEO Art Knapp.  “We look forward to congratulating the finalists, thanking them for their continued commitment to bettering our industry and the sectors we serve.”

The CW Program Game Changers are being honored during SIA’s CWS Summit North America, taking place Oct. 2-3, 2018 in Dallas.
