Simara Campbell Twohill and Adam Robinson are two of the Game Changers from the class of 2015.
Read about them and the 23 other members of the exclusive group below.
This marks the fifth year of WorkforceGame Changers, an award program designed to recognize those in workforce management who are pushing the field forward with innovative people-management practices. Even though we’ve given out these awards five times, there’s still no set mold into which all the Game Changers fit.
Our winners have tackled issues such as talent acquisition, employee development, and benefits design and management in a variety of creative ways over the past five years.
The thread that ties them all together is that their efforts engage employees and help their respective companies succeed.
Workforce’s editorial staff selected 25 winners this year based on the applicants’ ability to drive measurable results within their organizations.
Much like last year’s winners, this group of workforce management practitioners and strategists in human resources-related fields — all under 40 years old — didn’t focus their efforts on a single industry trend.
Some addressed employee skills gaps while others concocted ways to integrate new technology platforms into their practices to make them more efficient and user-friendly. Still others worked to help their companies grow on a global scale.
In each instance, the Game Changer took a risk and worked to incite change in a field that is often bogged down by protocol and leaders content with the way things have always been done.
For the willingness to embrace the spirit of innovation, we recognize 2015’s group of well-deserving Game Changers.
Congratulations to all the winners.
