Nomination Processes and Deadlines

SIA’s editorial lists, featured online and in the print and digital editions of Staffing Industry Review magazine and CWS 3.0 newsletter, recognize and honor leaders across the ecosystem for their achievements and contributions to the world of work. Nominations are accepted from the industry, from industry observers and, for certain lists, through data gathered via surveys. 



Calls announcing open nomination periods will appear in the Global Daily News and online as well as CWS 3.0 for all of the lists included below. General deadlines are listed below but are subject to change.

For the following lists, we solicit nominations and then choose honorees based on those nominations.

Nominees for each of these lists could be in any role if they are in the workforce solutions ecosystem — the center of which is staffing — for example, managing a branch or handling compliance in an online staffing platform, she or he could be a lawyer or operate an MSP, or she or he could be a consultant. No vendors to the industry, please. The key criteria that we are looking for include 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 submit nominations as well; here’s an opportunity to call out to those workforce solutions providers. Nominate those providers 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, including the impact they have already made, what revenue they have been responsible for or other quantifiable justification for their nomination. No resumes please. You are welcome to nominate as many people as you’d like!

Contingent Workforce Program Game Changers

SIA introduces the Contingent Workforce Program Game Changers list. To qualify, the nominee MUST be an employee of the buyer/enterprise organization; for example, a VP of HR sponsoring the program, an individual in the finance department responsible for program compliance, head of talent acquisition accountable for managing the contingent workforce or a procurement guru whose team handles the staff augmentation and statement-of-work contracts. The nominee can be in a different role from those mentioned above but should be impacting his or her company’s CW program in some quantifiable way. (Consultants on assignment or MSP/VMS program office personnel are NOT eligible.)

While we encourage individuals to nominate themselves or their peers for consideration, we welcome nominations from all corners of the ecosystem. We encourage providers to submit client candidates whom they feel demonstrate true innovation and authentic partnership.

The nomination must include nominee’s name, title, company name, email address and phone number. Include your own contact information as well. It should include a brief description of the program, including scope and mission statement if available.

Staffing Industry Analysts Global Power 150 Women in Staffing

We are seeking those remarkable female leaders whose talents, achievements and passion drive their success. Although evidence suggests that women dominate the staffing industry in branch offices, a very small number make it to boardrooms. With the list, which covers 100 women from the Americas and 50 international women, we aim to honor those female leaders making a difference.
Deadline: Nominations for the 2019 program are now closed. Register your interest for the 2020 program here.

Staffing Industry Analysts Forty Under 40

We are looking for the promising up-and-comers in North America, those whose potential influence on the industry is strong. Again, anything that you can quantify is very useful, for example, size of operations, departmental influence, new ways of doing things that resulted in savings, identifying new sources of revenue, etc.
