Report: Women’s Representation in Staffing Leadership Grew in 2022

The percentage of women who serve as chief executive officers and owners in the staffing industry more than doubled from 2020 to 2022, according to a new survey released by the Women Business Collaborative with support from ASA, National Association of Personnel Services, Staffing Industry Analysts, and TechServe Alliance. The percentage of female CEOs and owners in the staffing industry reached 42% in 2022, up from less than 20% in 2020.

“Women’s voices continue to grow in the staffing industry, but we still have work to do to reach full gender parity,” said ASA chair Threase Baker.
