Cincinnati, Ohio – Tony Munafo, President and CEO of Prolink, has been named to Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2023 Staffing 100 North America list for his innovative staffing approach and business evolution.
SIA is the global research and advisory firm focused on staffing and workforce solutions. Now in its 12th year, the annual list recognizes influential staffing leaders throughout North America who helped their businesses successfully emerge from one of the most difficult periods in recent world history. The list shines a spotlight on those executives making the world of work, work better.
Under Munafo’s leadership, Prolink has evolved to become a people-centric organization. Munafo believes that when the focus is on developing people, they are empowered to develop the business. In 2022, Prolink launched a Culture Office that focuses on preserving and enhancing the company’s culture and living out its core values every day.
“The industry is evolving, and Prolink will be at the forefront of that evolution. We want to be the employer of choice,” Munafo said. In addition to embracing a permanent, virtual-first business model, with most employees working remotely or in a hybrid arrangement, Munafo led Prolink through the pandemic by investing in technology and expanding their solutions, which poised the company to thrive while supporting healthcare organizations and other workforces around the country.
“Despite a devastating pandemic, war overseas, global inflation and a constantly evolving world of work, the staffing industry not only recovered but grew substantially past pre-pandemic levels. Seeing how the industry achieved such success merely requires a look at the Staffing 100 North America, who faced and leapt high over those obstacles,” said Barry Asin, SIA President. “As we look ahead to an uncertain period, we salute those who guided the industry through an often turbulent 2022. Congratulations 2023 honorees!”
This year’s Staffing 100 North America executives led their companies through strong 14% growth in 2022 to $212.8 billion in revenue for the staffing industry. For comparison, in what was considered an outstanding 2019, the United States staffing industry generated $153.1 billion in revenue. The 2023 Staffing 100 North America list is sponsored by the leading worldwide job site, Indeed.
“We’re thrilled to see how well these staffing leaders delivered this past year despite the many obstacles that were thrown their way. This is a reflection of their dedication to help people find the right jobs in a historically tight labor market, while supporting their business partners and clients,” said Priscilla Koranteng, Indeed’s Chief People Officer. “At Indeed, we celebrate this year’s Staffing 100 North America and thank them for moving our industry forward in an incredibly competitive market.”
The 2023 Staffing 100 North America honorees will be recognized during SIA’s Executive Forum North America, from March 6-9, 2023, at the iconic Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach.
