Theresa Rilli, senior VP contingent workforce strategy, at Atrium, has been in staffing for her entire professional career. Starting as a recruiter, Rilli climbed her way up the ladder and has held her current role for almost a year and a half. “My career has been so dynamic because of our growing client base and the things that we do. I never feel like I’m standing in one place,” she says.
While Rilli has accomplished much in the last few years, one of the things she’s most proud of is that, despite the pandemic, 2021 was a standout year for Atrium in terms of revenue and growth in all five service offerings, resulting in record-setting annual revenue. In particular, the MSP and direct sourcing spaces — the firm’s newest service offerings — demonstrated their strongest year-over-year growth since inception. The firm also implemented key technologies, including a robust contract management system, to provide efficiency and automation for independent contractors, suppliers in the MSP programs and Atrium clients.
The ever-changing world of staffing keeps Rilli excited about contingent labor management. “There’s this great opportunity when you work in this industry to feel like you work at a lot of different places, and you get interesting, diversified exposure that I don’t believe you get in a more traditional corporate career.” She adds that she looks forward to the future of staffing, as talent acquisition and diversity recruitment strategies are now at the forefront of everyone’s minds.
