Salkowski commented, “I am of course honoured to be included in the Staffing 100 North America list once again and would like to congratulate all those whose contributions to our industry have also been recognised. There has been a lot to overcome this year, with tough economic conditions, talent scarcity and global instability. I’m extremely proud to see our Guidant Global virtuosos partnering with customers to solve some of their biggest workforce challenges and help them build better businesses in a changing world. SIA’s recognition is a testament to the entire Guidant Global team and their dedication to helping our customers find a better way to work.”
Barry Asin, SIA president commented “Despite a devastating pandemic, war overseas, global inflation and a constantly evolving world of work, the staffing industry not only recovered but grew substantially past pre-pandemic levels. Seeing how the industry achieved such success merely requires a look at the Staffing 100 North America, who faced and leapt high over those obstacles. As we look ahead to an uncertain period, we salute those who guided the industry through an often turbulent 2022. Congratulations 2023 honorees!”
