Andover, MA (March 2, 2023) – ALKU CEO and Founder, Mark Eldridge, has been honored by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the Global Advisor on Staffing and Workforce Solutions. SIA unveiled its 2023 Staffing 100 North America, an annual list recognizing top staffing executives as the most influential industry leaders throughout North America. The list, sponsored by Indeed, is comprised of men and women who have guided the staffing industry to staggering growth amid a turbulent 2022. This is ALKU’s 8th time being named on the distinguished list, along with ALKU CEO and Founder, Mark Eldridge.

“I am honored and humbled to be recognized as one of SIA’s most influential leaders, but I must take a moment to congratulate my team,” said ALKU CEO, Mark Eldridge. “Despite industry obstacles, a global pandemic and devastating high-profile layoffs, our employees never took their foot off the gas. Demonstrating a strong and positive culture of long-term success, our employees here at ALKU grow together and continue to successfully emerge from one of the most difficult periods our world has ever seen.”

SIA is putting the spotlight on Eldridge’s many achievements this past year, including the inception of The ALKU Foundation, a nonprofit focused on promoting youth-serving programs in Massachusetts. To date, the specialized staffing and consulting firm has raised nearly $400,000 and its employees have dedicated more than 2,000 hours to community service.

Eldridge is Vice Chairman of Mass Mentoring Partnership’s board and is an active participant in SIA’s Growth Advisory Board. Additionally, under Eldridge’s leadership, ALKU generated $587 million in 2022 revenue.

As a result, ALKU is consistently recognized on various SIA lists, including but not limited to:

  • SIA’s Largest and Fastest Growing Staffing Firms
