GRI Partners in Recognizing Leading Enterprise Professionals

Mountain View, California – September 26, 2018 – Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, has unveiled its inaugural global Contingent Workforce (CW) Program Game Changers list. The list, which debuts today, recognizes those professionals – buyers of staffing services – making a significant contribution to the management and evolution of contingent workforce programs within their organizations and industry-wide. The list is sponsored by GRI.

Appointment to the list is made based on the impact and influence nominees have had on the profession, and on the roles they play in elevating the value of the flexible workforce. Amidst the many nominations received, forty-eight individuals were selected for inclusion.

“The CW Program Game Changers list is a tribute to those individuals around the world who have built and are taking the contingent workforce management profession to the next level,” said Subadhra Sriram, Editor & Publisher of Media Products, SIA. “These game changers were at the forefront of the changing world of work that involved contingents. 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.”

“At GRI, we continue to focus on being a game changer in the contingent workforce management industry through the introduction of new solutions that integrate the most current technologies and approaches, allowing us to set the standard. 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.  We look forward to congratulating the finalists, thanking them for their continued commitment to bettering our industry and the sectors we serve,” said Art Knapp, GRI’s CEO.

The CW Program Game Changers website debuts this week, profiling those named to the list and their notable accomplishments. The list also unveils in SIA’s online award-winning weekly newsletter CWS 3.0 today.
