Eagle President Earns Industry Recognition Twice in Six Months
Ottawa, ON, March 11, 2016 – Hot off the heels of being named in the Global Power 100, Janis Grantham, President and COO of Canadian professional staffing company Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle), is being recognized as one of the 100 most influential people in the staffing industry by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). The announcement was made in SIA’s publication of its annual Staffing 100 List, released on their website last month.
The Staffing 100, this year sponsored by erecruit, is compiled annually by SIA to showcase the most passionate members of the industry in North America, including strategists, entrepreneurs, reformers, researchers and business people. Members of the list are known for making a difference not only in the staffing world, but also in the lives of the thousands of people across the continent for whom they find employment.
“The Staffing 100 is an acknowledgment of those individuals shaping the world of work, and a commendation by their peers of their accomplishments in actively driving the industry,” said Subadhra Sriram, Editor and Publisher at Staffing Industry Analysts. “Some have lent their vision to new pathways for managing talent and engaging solutions across the workforce ecosystem and with respect to the human cloud. Others have taken on challenges, have shown impressive growth or have been instrumental in key legislation; all included, be they veterans to our list or first-timers, raise the bar for the industry as a whole.”
“Individual recognition like this is very much appreciated, but success is really only achieved through the accomplishments of an entire organization, so thank you to the Eagle team for the great work you do every day,” commented Grantham about the award. “It is also important to recognize and thank Staffing Industry Analysts, because awards like these shine a positive light on an industry that provides companies with their most important resource, people.”
As mentioned above, Grantham was also recognized on the first ever Global Power 100 in the fall of 2015, which recognizes women in staffing around the world. As a co-founder of Eagle, she has also been named in the PROFIT/Chatelaine W100 as one of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs, where she has been listed for the past 14 years; 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.
About the Staffing 100
The North America Staffing 100 list is not a ranking, but simply an aggregation of the 100 individuals who have influenced the world of contingent work. The list typically includes but is not limited to: entrepreneurs who have created new and lasting models, CEOs who run large staffing companies both public and private, individuals who have had major impact or influence through M&A, or by leading the charge through legislative change. The editorial team at Staffing Industry Analysts reviews the nominations and makes the final determination of who makes the list. Nominations are reviewed carefully and recommendations are accepted from all quarters of the industry.
