Akraya Inc. Wins Global Supplier Excellence Award from Magnit

The award acknowledges top staffing agencies that go above and beyond to support Magnit clients and the growing contingent labor market


BURLINGAME, CAAkraya Inc., an industry-leading Staffing and Consulting company with a focus on IT, Engineering, Creative, and Marketing talent, was announced among Magnit’s inaugural list of workforce agencies receiving a Global Supplier Excellence Award.

Magnit is an integrated workforce management (IWM) platform provider. This award uses an updated evaluation to holistically assess suppliers’ services and approaches to contingent staffing.

“We are honored by this recognition from a wonderful organization, and grateful for our relationship with Magnit,” said Bruce Schumikowski, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Akraya. “Sharing goals for DE&I while also providing the highest-quality workers makes our partnership beneficial for every party involved in the hiring process.”

Akraya demonstrated exceptional commitment to serving the needs of businesses using contingent workers. Magnit evaluated how the company’s overall performance, commitment to partnership, and compliance processes contributed to successful contingent labor programs.

“The industry is expanding, and the way businesses leverage and interact with staffing agencies is changing alongside it,” said Karen Maarouf, Senior Director of Global Supplier Relations at Magnit. “Partnership between agencies, workforce management vendors, and clients now sits at the center of the equation, with shared values and a shared vision for work’s evolution leading the way. The recipients of our inaugural Global Supplier Excellence Awards exemplify the new face of contingent staffing services, helping businesses adopt a new, more strategic approach to extended labor allocation.”

The list of honorees this year exceeded client expectations and also developed streamlined processes for recruiting from diverse candidate pools. Akraya’s Women Back to Work program helps companies that value diversity and inclusion tap into the often-overlooked talent pool of career-ready returners with technical backgrounds.
