TACOMA, Wash.—April 29, 2021—Taking the international stage, staffing leader PeopleReady was recognized for its We Are Ready™ branding refresh and creative efforts with top honors in the 2021 Hermes Creative Awards. The global awards program, which is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) and recognizes outstanding creative work, announced PeopleReady as an early winner from a field of nearly 6,000 expected entries.
