MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Staffing Industry Analysts, the global advisor on contingent work, announced today that Jeff Rosensweig, international business and finance professor; Chester Elton, co-author of The Orange Revolution; and Chris Brogan, social media guru will headline Staffing Industry Analysts' Executive Forum. The conference, now in its 21st year, will be held March 13-16, 2012 at the Red Rock Resort, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada, where more than 800 staffing executives are expected to attend. "We have seen year-over-year growth in attendance, stated Barry Asin, President of Staffing Industry Analysts. "We believe the growth of the conference highlights the rebound seen in contingent work, and the need for industry leaders to connect with others in the staffing community."

At the Executive Forum, Staffing Industry Analysts will present Jai Shekhawat, CEO and co-founder of Fieldglass Inc., with the 2012 Peter Yessne Staffing Innovator Award. "Innovation shapes itself in many ways. The growth and adoption of vendor management systems (VMS) has been one of the most striking and enduring innovations in staffing over the past decade. Jai Shekhawat has been leading the cutting edge of that development. This innovation has shown how technology could be used to connect suppliers and buyers of contingent labor while increasing usage and quality," Asin said. "Corporations require solutions that not only provide data, but reduce complexity. Of the nearly 100 highly qualified nominations we received for the Peter Yessne Staffing Innovator Award, Jai Shekhawat stood out this year for providing outstanding innovation in this area," continued Asin.
