This year, Staffing Industry Analysts debuted their first ever 2017 Hall of Fame list. This includes leaders that have been on SIA’s yearly Staffing 100 list since it’s induction year in 2011. It includes some of the most influential leaders in the staffing industry from across North America. We are thrilled to announce that our president, Joyce Russell, was included on this prestigious list!
Joyce has been a part of the Adecco family for over 25 years now. She began her career with our company working as a Branch Manager in Charlotte, North Carolina. She assumed the role of President and Chief Operating Officer for Adecco Staffing USA in December 2006. Today, Joyce is described as the most senior-ranking woman in the United States staffing industry. One of the secrets to Joyce’s success is her highly infectious positivity and her ‘can do’ attitude. She spends the vast majority of her time as president traveling across the country to meet with clients and Adecco colleagues, and there is no one with a personality that is better suited for that type of role. It is her upbeat disposition that has kept her and our company successful throughout her tenure. Joyce has experienced numerous changes to the state of the economy and the staffing industry, however, her thorough understanding of the business and people has led to unwavering success for Adecco.
Outside of her role as our president, Joyce is a member of the Committee of 200, a group whose mission is to advance the leaderships roles for women in business. She is also a panelist and participant in Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summits. Being a champion for women, Joyce was proud to announce that Adecco was recognized as a 2017 Top Company for Executive Women by the National Association for Female Executives.
We could not be prouder of Joyce and wish to congratulate her on this well-deserved honor!
