TrueBlue CEO Steve Cooper has been named to the inaugural class of Staffing Industry Analysts’ Hall of Fame, joining a list of leaders who have had a profound impact on the staffing industry. 

In addition, the Tacoma headquartered firm’s President and COO Patrick Beharelle and (TrueBlue subsidiary) PeopleScout President Taryn Owen were named to SIA’s Staffing 100, which was announced in the latest issue of Staffing Industry Review.

“This is a terrific honor,” Cooper said. “We work hard to set a standard for the industry, both in terms of finding new ways to connect people and work and in conducting our corporate governance in an honest and ethical manner. 

“The fact that Patrick and Taryn were both also named to the Staffing 100 list is a testament to TrueBlue’s leadership and innovation in our industry,” Cooper added in a news statement.

SIA describes the Staffing 100 as industry leaders who “will continue to break records, create new models of work, place people in jobs, help legislate and move the world of work forward.” This year, it created the Hall of Fame, which includes selected industry influencers who have been included on the Staffing 100 list for at least five consecutive years.
