Eagle's President Named One of the World's Most Influential Women in StaffingOttawa, ON, September 9, 2015 – Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle) is pleased to announce that the professional staffing company’s President and COO, Janis Grantham, was named this month in Staffing Industry Analysts’ first ever Global Power 100, Women in Staffing List.  The complete list was released in the September issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine and identifies game changing women in the staffing industry from around the world, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America and the Middle East.

This is the first time in Staffing Industry Analysts’ 25-year history that the organization has compiled such a list. Initially seeking 50 women and quickly realizing it had to be expanded to 100, SIA sought the staffing industry’s best and brightest innovators, entrepreneurs, thinkers and rising stars. “There is a war under way for talent. Jobs for the credentialed in certain fields are plentiful. But for many others less qualified it’s a struggle,” said SIA’s Subadhra Sriram in her initial call for nominations. “How do you lead in a job market when everyone is a free agent? This list will call out those women in staffing worldwide who are forging new paths and creating innovative models of work.”

The list includes CEOs and Senior Managers, as well as women in a variety of roles who have a made a quantifiable impact to ensure success in the team, branch, brand, events or products. According to the Global Power 100 website, among those included are policymakers, businesspersons, technologists, crusaders, and leaders who share the common goal of a love for promoting and shaping talent.

“The staffing industry is a competitive business and benefits economies all around the world,” said Grantham. “It’s encouraging to see so many strong women leaders throughout our industry and an honour to be named among them. Congratulations to everyone on this year’s Global Power.”

In addition to being named on the Global Power 100 in 2015, Grantham is also named in the PROFIT/Chatelaine W100 as one of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs, where she has been listed for the past 14 years. She has also been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Powerful Women by the Women’s Executive Network and Business Woman of the Year in the Consumer’s Choice Awards.
