SWPP Lifetime Achievement Award

SWPP recognizes leaders in the WFM industry with a special SWPP Lifetime Achievement Award. Candidates are evaluated in terms of major contributions to the field of workforce management throughout their careers in areas such as:

  • Service to the profession through SWPP with contributions to regional meetings, newsletter articles, tips of the week, web seminars, and/or the annual conference
  • Leadership in the WFM industry and/or SWPP
  • Contributions to the education of WFM professionals
  • Shaping of WFM technology

The award is for lifetime achievement rather than for a single contribution, no matter how monumental. Nominees should have a minimum of 25 years of distinguished service.
