Gary Nelson Highlighted as Staffing Star in SIReview’s Who’s Who: The Staffing 100

Sonoma, California, October 24, 2011 – Nelson is delighted to announce founder Gary Nelson’s inclusion in SIReview’s Who’s Who: The Staffing 100. As SIReview put it, “The Staffing 100 is not a ranking; rather, it’s a list of influential staffing leaders chosen after a thorough review of nominations made by [clients], our advisors and the Staffing Industry Analysts’ team.”

Nelson has had a banner year leading up to this inclusion in the top 100. The Bay Area News Group listed the company as one of the 2011 Top Work Places, North Bay Biz awarded Nelson Best Job Placement Service 2011, and Staffing Industry Analysts and San Francisco Business Times also included Nelson among their “Best Staffing Firms” and “Best Places to Work.” Likewise, WorkforceLogic, a division of Nelson,earned Top Overall Performer VMS/MSP from Staffing Industry Analysts and HRO Baker’s Dozen ranking as a winner in customer satisfaction and breadth of service.

“I couldn’t be more proud of my father,” said son and Executive VP of Staffing Services, Craig S. Nelson. “I believe the thing that makes him stand head and shoulders above the rest is his spirit of innovation and willingness to change. He is always focused on meeting the changing needs of our customers. In the 90s, he saw that staffing was trending toward managed services and vendor management, and, rather than contracting out that business, he hired VMS/MSP experts to develop software that incorporated his 30-some years of staffing experience. The result was WorkforceLogic, a stand-alone business unit that is now relied upon by companies globally.”

When asked how he felt about being named a Top 100 influential leader, Gary Nelson (a staunch San Francisco 49er fan) said, “When the 49ers named us their Preferred Staffing Provider, I thought my year was made, but this is the icing on the cake! I am honored to be in this publication with colleagues who have helped shape the staffing and contingent workforce management industries.”
