Russell Tobin Wins GOLD Award in PRO Unlimited’s 2019 Global Supplier Awards for Service

NEW YORK, NY—On September 1, 2020, PRO Unlimited—a global innovator of contingent workforce management software and services—awarded Russell Tobin with the 2019 Gold Award from its annual Global Supplier Awards for Service. These awards recognize staffing agencies that go above and beyond talent and program needs for PRO and its clients.  

“Candidly, finding out we won Gold was surreal,” says Tim Tobin, Russell Tobin’s Managing Director. “We started this firm over 10 years ago with a handful of people in a small office and now we’re a Gold Partner to one of the preeminent MSP service providers on the planet.”

Based off a proprietary 30-point scorecard system assessment, the supplier awards exemplify excellence in talent quality, compliance, and candidate experience, and ensure that their relationship with PRO and its clients is strong and sustainable through high-service standards. 

“Our extraordinary supplier partnerships have guaranteed that our clients gain access to the best talent possible in order to elevate their contingent workforce programs,” says Sam Jackson, Senior Manager, Global Supplier Partnerships at PRO Unlimited. “That’s why it’s so important to recognize our partners that have gone to great lengths to support our stakeholders in North America, EMEA, APAC, and Latin America.”

The staffing solutions firm, which has won the Silver Award for PRO’s Global Supplier Awards for Service in 2017 and 2018 (both in the U.S. and India), can now tick off 2019 for its three-peat win—now adding Gold to the mix. “One of our objectives was to become a strategic global partnerand this award validates that we’re on the right track,” Tobin says.  

Staffing suppliers value PRO’s program because of the fairness of its purely vendor-neutral modelAll orders are distributed at the same time to PRO’s supplier network based on category and location, allowing each supplier to have an equal opportunity to fill the ordersSuppliers can then focus their efforts on recruiting qualified candidates versus marketing their services to hiring managers.  

“We are thrilled that we continue to expand our supplier network year-over-year,” said Megan Joyner, Manager, Global Supplier Partnerships at PRO Unlimited. “Due to this tremendous growth, we are able to tap a vast pool of highly skilled professionals that enable our global client base to not only meet its business goals, but to win the war for talent.” 

Russell Tobin’s “Road to Gold” was not exclusive to one team’s role or any specific demographic. When asked what contributing factors led them to winning Gold for 2019, Tobin attributes the firm’s “commitment towards excellence to its latest achievement, adding that the organization’sunderstanding of how its service and partnership [to PRO] was paramount” to winning the award. “Many people, past and present, contributed on our behalf, and I’m feeling both humble and grateful for an abundance of reasons.”
