ISG Advisors Recognized as 2021 HRO Today Superstars for Sparking Innovation Amid the Pandemic

Stacey Cadigan and Debora Card recognized as top HRO experts

The editors of HRO Today magazine named advisors from Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, among the publication’s 2021 Superstars—leaders who, amid the pandemic, have helped usher in a new age of work that will make companies sharper and more prepared than ever before.

Stacey Cadigan, partner, was named an HR Superstar for the sixth consecutive year, and Debora Card, partner, was honored for the eighth consecutive year. HRO Today defines HR Superstars as “top industry leaders redefining what it means to be an executive who effortlessly exhibits agility and efficiency.”

“Human Resource leaders across every industry faced challenges and demonstrated their value in countless ways during 2020 and 2021,” said Todd Lavieri, vice chairman and president, ISG Americas and Asia Pacific. “We congratulate Stacey and Deb on this well-earned recognition for the quality of their work guiding enterprises with technology support and solutions for the critical, real-time decision-making these extraordinary circumstances have required.”

“HR leaders have spent the last two years solidifying their reputations as innovative problem solvers and resourceful strategists. With the pandemic’s dust settling, HR is being regarded as the backbone of many organizations, as executives skillfully acquired, equipped, comforted, and directed their workforces amid the unknown,” the editors of HRO Today said in announcing the awards. “HR professionals made it possible for businesses to navigate the pandemic and shape the modern world of work.”

ISG HR Technology and Transformation Services is a leading independent advisor on all aspects of HR transformation, working closely with clients as they create a business case for technology investment, select the best platform and services for their needs and manage organizational and process change.

Cadigan leads the ISG HR Technology business, and has particular expertise in recruitment process outsourcing, HR technology and talent management. She co-authors the annual ISG Survey on Industry Trends in HR Technology and Service Delivery report, which tracks how market trends are evolving based on prior research and examines the maturity of organizations as they make their way along the digital transformation journey.
