Mondo and its first female President, Stephanie Wernick Barker were honored with three awards at this year’s Stevie® Award ceremony held in Las Vegas Nevada, making this the first time Mondo and its president have been recognized by this reputable organization.

About the Stevie Awards

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run worldwide. 

The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year: Mondo, and its President, Stephanie Wernick Barker are placeholders in three categories.

Mondo’s company growth through the pandemic

Mondo, launched in 2000, was once a small yet contending staffing house that found success in local talent acquisition; enough success to attract the attention of its national parent company, Addison Group — Mondo was officially acquired in 2018.

Under Stephanie’s leadership in 2019, a time when most companies were being forced to cut back in efforts to survive a global shutdown, Mondo’s revenue grew 81% and Mondo has experienced year-over-year revenue growth of 21%.

Mondo, is the largest national staffing agency specializing exclusively in high-end, niche IT, Tech, Creative, and Digital Marketing talent.

Mondo by the numbers

According to the “US Staffing Industry Forecast: September 2022 Update” report by Staffing Industry Analysts, this year’s domestic staffing revenue will see a 14% increase by year’s end, reaching a staggering record of $212.8 billion.

The staffing industry forecast includes organizations whose purpose is to locate and/or supply workers for other organizations, and the largest revenue segment of this industry is agency work, comprising approximately 75% of the market in 2020

Mondo has steadily gained and sustained industry recognition, receiving commendations for its exceptional female leadership and its people-first culture including the aforementioned Silver for “Women-Run Workplace of the Year” as well at this year’s Stevie Awards.

Quote from Meagan Humphrey, Mondo Senior Vice President:

“I know it is common to use the word ‘team’ to describe the workplace, but at Mondo, we are so literal about being a team. Each and every one of our teammates, the majority of which are incredible women, step up and jump in when needed.

Mondo’s growth and successes are all the direct result of the entire team’s willingness to be transparent, to identify areas of opportunity, and to innovate by leveraging one another and our experiences as a team.

Recognitions, as esteemed as the Stevie Awards, shine a spotlight on what Mondo DNA is all about”
