New Jersey SmartCEO Names People Science Founder and CEO Christine Nichlos a 2016 Brava Award Winner

Dedicated RPO Thought Leader Honored for Being the Driving Force Behind People Science's Tremendous Success

SHREWSBURY, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2016) - People Science, a talent acquisition business whose offerings include recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), recruiting advice, direction and solutions, and contract staffing services, today announced that company founder and CEO, Christine Nichlos, has been named by New Jersey SmartCEO as a winner of the 2016 Brava Award. The annual award celebrates the achievements of 40 of the top women business leaders in New Jersey.

"When I started People Science nearly 20 years ago, it was with the intention that we could help businesses be more successful by closing the gap between the positions they offer and the talent they can find and hire. Our success as a company is due to our ability to do just that, bringing disruptive, proactive approaches to address critical staffing needs," said Nichlos. "I am thrilled to accept this award from SmartCEO for my work achievements, and I am especially honored to be recognized alongside such esteemed company as my fellow award recipients."

Nichlos founded People Science in 1997 because she recognized that many companies were ill-prepared for the complexities of acquiring talent efficiently and cost effectively. Despite enduring three economic recessions, success came quickly for Nichlos and her team, which is a testament to her strong leadership capabilities and quick understanding of clients' individual business issues. A well-regarded thought leader and speaker in the RPO space, Nichlos has built her career on driving dramatic business results.

With Nichlos as the driving force at People Science, the company has flourished over the past two decades and is now recognized industrywide for its ability to solve companies' toughest hiring challenges. Drawing on the vast experience of its team of thinkers and doers, People Science applies proven information systems, processes and methodologies as it provides exceptional services and outcomes to its clients in the U.S. and abroad. The company has continued its innovative ways with the recent introduction of HireGate, which is a mobile-native, cloud-based solution that extends the life of existing enterprise applicant tracking systems (ATS).

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Nichlos lends her support to a number of charitable organizations, including the USO and the American Red Cross. As a proponent of a positive candidate experience, she not only promotes a quality candidate experience among People Science's clients, but also supports the annual Candidate Experience Awards, which aim to enhance and elevate the candidate experience.

"Brava winners possess the hallmark qualities of successful leaders -- vision, passion, compassion, dedication, perseverance. Each winner in this year's class exhibits these qualities in all facets of her life, from running her business to tending to her family and donating time and resources to philanthropic initiatives," said Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, president of SmartCEO. "We are honored to recognize a group of women who are truly making a difference in the world."

This year's class of New Jersey Brava Award winners collectively generates more than $2.83 billion in annual revenue and employs 14,457 individuals. The winners will be profiled in the July/August issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on June 23, 2016.

More than 350 local executives and guests are expected to gather and celebrate the noteworthy achievements of the award recipients at this year's ceremony. Past Brava winners will also be in attendance to welcome the new class of winners into the Brava community. The event will kick off with a cocktail reception, followed by a video-packed awards ceremony and a final, inspirational toast to the female leaders of New Jersey.
