MBO Partners Joins SIA in Honoring Industry Professionals

Mountain View, California – May 15, 2019 – Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, has announced its second annual Contingent Workforce (CW) Program Game Changers list. The list recognizes individuals – professionals working in contingent workforce management roles around the globe – making a significant contribution to the management and evolution of contingent workforce programs within their organizations and industry-wide. This year’s list is sponsored by independent workforce leader MBO Partners.

Nominations for the list will be accepted through July 15, 2019. Selection and 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 contingent work. Finalists will be announced this September.

“We are excited to honor a remarkable set of CW professionals again this year,” said Ursula Williams, COO at SIA. “The list celebrates not only those impacting his or her company’s contingent workforce program in a quantifiable way, but those individuals who do so through true innovation and authentic partnership, adding value for the entire ecosystem.”

“There has never been a greater need for innovation and organizational courage than right now. Economic uncertainty, demographic change and rapid advancements in technology are disrupting existing business models and traditional ways of working,” said Bryan T. Peña, chief of market strategy at MBO Partners.

“Many organizations are slowly coming to recognize that ‘business as usual’ is just not good enough when it comes to engaging the in-demand talent that can truly create competitive advantage. These visionaries being recognized in the CW Game Changers list have driven their programs to the next level—as recognized by their peers—and in doing so created a new talent vision for the 21st century and beyond. MBO Partners is honored to join SIA in recognizing this group of elite professionals who are blazing a trail to the workforce of tomorrow.”

Those named to the list are being honored during SIA’s CWS Summit North America, taking place September 9-10, 2019 in San Diego, CA.
