Shah will expand Randstad Sourceright's extensive corporate diversity resources and will provide strategic guidance to MSP clients on next generation diversity and inclusion initiatives for their contingent workforce programs.

"With heightened calls for social justice, business leaders have realized that diversity candidate sourcing and tracking must be applied in the contingent space. Organizations are leading more concerted efforts to build diverse and inclusive workforces, and it is critical that contingent, temporary and project-based employees are taken into account as well," said Sue Marcus, regional president of Total Talent Solutions for Randstad Sourceright. "The creation of this role will allow us to innovate and lead in the area of diversity and inclusion for contingent talent. Vaishali's experience and depth in talent acquisition and corporate wellness make her the perfect person to lead our D&I initiatives for our industry leading MSP programs."

Shah has more than 20 years of experience in the consulting, HR and talent acquisition space with Ericsson, Adecco, Citi and McKinsey & Company. Prior to joining the Randstad team, Shah founded FabAmerica and yoga4restofus, a corporate wellness consultancy.

"Building agile, diverse, inclusive and welcoming workplaces should not only be limited to permanent hires. For a company to truly deliver on their diversity and inclusions strategies, it must encompass every type of talent – from temp to perm," said Shah. "I am thrilled to join the team at Randstad Sourceright to help our clients develop strategies to attract the best and most diverse contingent talent possible and ensure those individuals are able to bring their authentic selves to work every day."
