Pierce is one of eight recipients of national award
Cincinnati, OH, August 2, 2022 – BelFlex Staffing Network (BelFlex), a staffing and flexible workforce solutions firm in the commercial sector, today announced that Kristy Pierce, Senior Director of Finance and Accounting at BelFlex, has been awarded a Women in Leadership Scholarship by the American Staffing Association.
“The entire BelFlex team is incredibly proud of Kristy and thrilled she’s received this well-earned recognition. She’s been a tremendous asset to the company and is especially effective at identifying accounting and financial technology solutions that build connections between front-office business operations and back-office functions,” said Bob Baer, Chief Operating Officer, BelFlex. “This has given her a big picture view of BelFlex, which is critical for ensuring that we’re building a sustainable company that can succeed and support its employees and clients, especially during complex economic times.”
Pierce has worked in accounting for over 10 years. She joined BelFlex in 2019 and was appointed to her current position in June of 2022. Pierce leads all strategic financial initiatives, focusing on establishing internal controls and policies, budgeting, forecasting, risk assessment, community outreach, financial planning and analysis, and more. One of her significant achievements was moving the accounting department away from a paper-based practice and into a digital system which has streamlined all of its processes.
“The Women in Leadership Scholarship program recognizes the most promising rising stars in the staffing and recruiting industry,” said Minnette Hostetler, chairman of the ASA Women in Leadership Scholarship program task force. “We look forward to helping Kristy grow her career by participating at Thrive: Live and Staffing World this October.”
Each recipient will attend two ASA events at no charge: THRIVE: Live at Staffing World 2022 preconvention program, Oct. 24-25, and Staffing World®, Oct. 25-27. Both events are taking place at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.
These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of Assurance, founding sponsor of the ASA Women in Leadership Interest Group and Women in Leadership, with special recognition to the authors of Together We Rise. Generous proceeds from the Together We Rise book sales supported additional scholarships this year. The book can be purchased online.
