TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Adecco Employment Services Limited
announced today that their President and Country Manager, Sandra
Hokansson has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Most Powerful Women
for 2012, adding further distinction to an impressive eight-years at
the helm of the workforce solutions leader.
"This award is an opportunity to highlight not only Sandra's great
success as a leader, but the whole culture of leadership at Adecco,"
said Bob Crouch, CEO, Adecco Group North America. "To be the world
leader in workforce solutions, it takes world-class leadership. Sandra
is a prime example of that leadership."
In 2010, to successfully navigate Adecco Canada through the economic
downturn, Sandra developed a five year growth strategy which laid out
strategic priorities for the organization. One year later, this plan
allowed the company to realize revenue growth rates above the staffing
industry average. Since then, Adecco Canada continues to record solid
financial performance and has also demonstrated the ability to pioneer
the development of innovative workforce solutions that respond to the
evolving needs of their partnership accounts.
Strong meaningful leadership however is not built on numbers alone. In
addition to the financial success that Sandra has been able to drive at
Adecco Canada, her ability to build a strong employee base has also
contributed to her selection for this award. Sandra's commitment to
promoting talent from within has seen over 30 internal promotions
within a 12 month period alone. By fostering a positive environment
that encourages career progression, both retention rates and employee
satisfaction have grown.
This award is handed out by the Women's Executive Network to the top 100 women achievers and leaders in Canada's private, public
and not-for-profit sectors. Winners are selected based on their
strategic vision and leadership, their organization's financial
performance, and their commitment to their communities. Winners will be
recognized at the 2012 Top 100 Awards Gala on December 5th at the
Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.
