ATLANTA (June 7, 2022) TrainingPros has once again been included on the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) list of US & Canada Diversity-Owned Staffing Firms. The list was created to provide a useful reference for companies looking to employ diversity-owned staffing suppliers and for staffing firms seeking diversity-owned subcontractors. Recent research from SIA revealed that 71% of large firms using staffing services had a program for diverse suppliers in 2021, and another 26% planned to put one in place within the next two years.


“We are proud to be on this list for the third year in a row, and to provide diverse solutions for large corporations when they are making supplier hiring decisions,” said Leigh Anne Lankford, president, and owner of TrainingPros. “Our specialized learning and development (L&D) staffing firm is committed to delivering innovation and excellence for our clients, and we appreciate being recognized for our commitment to diversity.” In 2020, Lankford led the meticulous process to certify TrainingPros as a woman-owned business through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.


Among the 192 firms included on SIA’s 2022 list, a record number – 122 were women-owned, up from 91 companies when TrainingPros was first named to the Diversity-Owned Staffing Firms list in 2020.
