Global Power 50, Women in Staffing List

For the first time in its 25-year history, Staffing Industry Analysts is compiling a global list of women executives in staffing. It’s time to recognize the contribution of women in leadership roles, and to do so we need your nominations. We’re looking for the staffing industry’s best and brightest for this prestigious list of innovators, entrepreneurial thinkers and rising stars.  You don’t have to be a CEO or senior manager to be on the list.

There is a war under way for talent. Jobs for the credentialed in certain fields are plentiful. But for many others less qualified it’s a struggle. How do you lead in a job market when everyone is a free agent? This list will call out those women in staffing worldwide who are forging new paths and creating innovative models of work.

We want women who have made a quantifiable impact within their team, be it with an idea for a new work arrangement, product or just leadership that resulted in increased revenue or perhaps saved a business unit thousands of dollars. It’s about influencing people, those you work with and those you place to go above and beyond.

She could be in any role as long as she is in the staffing industry--for example, managing a branch or handling compliance in an online staffing platform, she could be a lawyer or operate an MSP, or she could be a vendor on premise or consultant. The key criteria that we are looking for is those who have gone above and beyond to ensure the success of their teams, branches, brands, events or products.

Buyers of staffing are welcome to contribute as well; here’s an opportunity to call out to those suppliers of staffing. Nominate women without whom your program would have collapsed. So, if you think someone on your team is deserving of this recognition, recommend them by sending us a short paragraph outlining why they should make this roster. No resumes please. You are welcome to nominate as many women as you’d like! The deadline is June 17th. Please send your nominations to
