Pontoon President Recognized on SIA’s 2019 Staffing 100 list

We are very honored that our President, Corinne Ripoche Van Hecke, has been named on Staffing Industry Analysts’ Staffing 100 list.

What’s the staffing 100 really about? It’s about people. People helping people. People who create jobs, place others in them and drive the world of work. The 2019 Staffing 100 honorees are those that create new models of work, drive efficiencies while running companies, influence legislation and introduce technologies that change how we work. They are the face of our industry.

The stars on this year’s list, sponsored by Indeed, have to contend with low unemployment, disruption from various technologies and an uncertain geopolitical environment. But what is striking is their commitment to their internal staff. As a group, they believe that hiring the right person while providing a conducive environment is great for the bottom line. The proof is their workers’ long tenures and company impact.

“President Corinne Ripoche Van Hecke and her team have transformed Pontoon from a regionally managed operation to an industry-aligned model delivered globally with local expertise. Pontoon is poised to be an undisputed player in the industry and a trusted advisor delivering excellence to all clients. Ripoche Van Hecke’s entrepreneurial spirit and customer focus are demonstrated through implementation of four initiatives: Be a Game Changer, Play Collective, Act Warrior and Be a Growth Hacker. In addition, she’s implemented Lean Six Sigma trainings, design thinking sessions for internal/external stakeholders and a renewed focus on partnering with customers to solve workforce challenges through MSP, RXO and on-site solutions.” – Staffing Industry Analysts.
