SIA List Highlights Diversity Staffing Firms

Mountain View, California – May 21, 2019 – Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, has released its 2019 list of US & Canada Diversity Staffing Firms, unveiling the list online and featuring the firms in the May/June issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine.

This year’s list comprises 157 firms that self-identify as being under diversity ownership. Among firms on the list, 100 reported they were women-owned, and 75 cited minority ownership such as African-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American or LGBT. Firms on the list could have multiple types of ownership, for example a firm could be both women-owned and Hispanic-owned. Firms on the list range from smaller, niche organizations to global organizations and solutions providers; and encompass the full spectrum of staffing segments. IT (58), Healthcare (42), Industrial (37) and Office/Clerical (37) were the segments with the highest number of diversity-owned firms on the list, respectively. Firms, in general, reported their largest segments and firms could report services in more than one segment.

“The clamor around diversity hiring is rising. The benefits of a diverse workforce are evident, from the financial gains, the varied thinking that leads to better and more creative solutions, to the workforce reflecting the society we live in,” said Subadhra Sriram, Editor & Publisher Media Products at SIA. “But it’s not just about diverse hiring. It’s about diverse suppliers, too. SIA’s 2019 list of US & Canada Diversity Staffing Firms offers an aerial view of diversity suppliers and where they are adding value in business and society while bridging critical industry gaps as service partners.”

The list provides a useful reference for companies with contingent workforce programs looking to use diversity staffing suppliers to meet their diversity quotas and for staffing firms seeking diversity subcontractors. These firms also help attract a more diverse workforce.
