Parker Staffing, an award-winning national temporary and permanent staffing agency, today announced that Seattle Business magazine has honored its president, Debbie Crandall, at the annual Executive Excellence Awards. Crandall was recognized on January 23, 2020, at a special event held at the Museum of Flight alongside leaders from corporations and nonprofits across Washington state.
At the banquet, Crandall spoke about what it meant to be honored after 25 years in the staffing industry and offered this advice to up and coming leaders:
If I could go back 40 years and ask myself for some advice, I’d say become a student of people, because people make you successful. People run your company. If you understand what motivates them and what brings them to work every day, and you can get them to follow you, then it will come back to you ten-fold.
A full list of honorees for this year’s awards follows, and Parker Staffing salutes their achievements and drive for excellence.
