Former ManpowerGroup executive Jeffrey Joerres is the newest inductee into the ASA Leadership Hall of Fame, which was created in 1985 to recognize outstanding contribution and dedicated service to ASA and the staffing and recruiting industry. Joerres was celebrated Oct. 19 at Staffing World, the association’s annual convention and expo (a virtual event in 2020).
Under Joerres’s leadership, ManpowerGroup experienced rapid growth, expanding the footprint of the organization to 3,100 offices across more than 75 countries with revenues in excess of $20 billion. He retired in December 2015 after serving as chairman and chief executive officer for 15 years. He joined the organization in 1993, and also held other key leadership roles in sales, marketing and operations.
“I am delighted to welcome Jeff Joerres as this year’s inductee to the ASA Leadership Hall of Fame,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “Jeff is a visionary and inspiring thought leader who contributed to the advancement of ASA and the entire staffing industry. Over the years, he effectively led efforts to promote and advance industry interests in global staffing markets—large, small, and emerging. Jeff’s passionate commitment to equity, integrity, innovation, and professionalism have benefited the entire staffing industry, the clients it serves, and the millions of people it places and employs every day.”
