The Bostonian is honored as an influencer on the future of work
BOSTON – February 15, 2018 – Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, has unveiled its seventh annual list of North American staffing leaders, celebrating those individuals whose passion and contributions have made a positive impact on the lives and livelihoods of workers and job seekers across the economy. The 2018 Staffing 100 list, comprised of 100 notable influencers features Catalant CEO and Co-Founder, Rob Biederman.
Biederman was added to the list for helping companies revolutionize the way they think about talent. By offering a network of 50,000 independent experts and solutions for managing other pools of talent, Catalant is allowing companies to create a talent ecosystem based on skills rather than geography. This work along with the book, Reimagining Work: Strategies to Disrupt Talent, Lead Change, and Win with a Flexible Workforce, he recently co-authored secured a spot for him on this list.
“My inclusion on the list is a testament to the team we’ve built at Catalant and their efforts to help companies reimagine work,” said Rob Biederman. “We’re hearing from executives in the Fortune 500 that they are looking to manage talent differently. Increasingly, they realize that the nature of work is changing dramatically. So we partner with their companies to design solutions that engage the right people inside or outside their company, at the right time, without the constraints of job descriptions, office walls or geographic boundaries.”
The list is not a ranking but a way to recognize those championing the Workforce Solutions Ecosystem and driving its growth. Biederman is joined on the list by, CEOs, entrepreneurs, technologists, workforce specialists, legal advisors, data scientists and more, from a range of different kinds of companies and niches–from traditional staffing to human cloud platforms to MSP/VMS to RPO.
“The 2018 Staffing 100 honorees touch all sectors of the workforce solutions ecosystem, elevating it through their commitment, innovation and expertise,” said Subadhra Sriram, Publisher and Editor, Media Products, SIA. “I am once again excited to acknowledge an important group whose work is leading our industry into the future.”
The Staffing 100 website for the North American, Latin American and Hall of Fame 2018 lists debuts this today. Those named to the lists are being honored at a private reception at SIA’s Executive Forum North America: Future Forward in Miami later this month. The list, along with the full profiles of those recognized, is also featured in the January/February 2018 issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine.
