Growth Advisory Board

Growth Advisory Board

With highly specialized tools, resources and peer insight, SIA’s Growth Advisory Board helps you grow as a leader and achieve better results for your business.

Group of employees in the workplace



Most staffing firm leaders want to grow, but few can break through the barriers to growth. Of the 20,000 staffing firms in the US, fewer than 300 have reached the level to become members of SIA’s $100 million club. In addition to external pressures in a highly competitive staffing industry, the development of high-performance executive leadership is the most common barrier to growth for staffing firms. 

The Solution

The good news is leaders can overcome the barriers to growth through the development of specific leadership disciplines. The Growth Advisory Board is an effective and affordable way for staffing leaders to accelerate their growth. Our advisory board focuses on helping leaders understand what is required to achieve rapid and sustainable growth, providing tools to help them grow, and developing a support network to hold leaders accountable for executing on their plans. 

Drawing from the recent Breaking Through: Leadership Disciplines from Top Performing Staffing Firms book, the Growth Advisory Board is a membership service that provides staffing leaders with the outside perspectives, benchmarking, expert advice, tools and peer support needed to grow their staffing business in a rapid and sustainable manner.

Testimonial Background

“After years of steady organic growth, we plateaued, and we weren’t sure why. After reading Breaking Through, it was clear that we needed to change, and we knew we needed a peer group that would help us meet our targets. The SIA Growth Advisory Board was exactly that, and we have seen record growth and profit. The members are committed to helping each other exceed revenue targets and run better companies.”
