Staffing Industry Analysts Inducts Late PrideStaff Founder and Long-Term CEO, George Rogers, Into Staffing 100 Hall of Fame

February 18, 2022

PrideStaff, a nationally franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that their late leader and visionary, Founder and long-time CEO George Rogers, was recently inducted into Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Staffing 100 Hall of Fame.

SIA initially created the Staffing 100 North America list to recognize influential individuals who chart a course for the future of the staffing industry. After several years, SIA discovered that there was a group of people who made this list year after year – including Rogers, who was named to the Staffing 100 North America list for five consecutive years. In 2017, SIA created an even more selective list, the Staffing 100 Hall of Fame, to honor this distinguished group of consistent standouts in the workforce ecosystem. This unranked list includes CEOs, entrepreneurs, consultants, technologists, innovators and others who spearhead growth for their organization and the industry, and who exhibit the qualities of empowerment, persistence, integrity, strong leadership and the relentless pursuit of excellence.

“I am thrilled, but not at all surprised, that Staffing Industry Analysts has chosen to honor George in this way,” stated PrideStaff Co-CEO Tammi Heaton. “His passion for helping others and entrepreneurial spirit drove him to build an industry-leading franchise organization that makes a real difference to the employers, job seekers and local communities that we serve.”

“George was a true pioneer in the staffing industry who achieved tremendous success by embodying PrideStaff’s core values of integrity, trust, reliability, respect, innovation, and, of course, pride,” continued Heaton. “He is deeply missed, and Co-CEO & CFO Mike Aprile and I are proud to carry on his legacy of innovation and service excellence at the leading edge of a dynamic industry that positively impacts so many people.”

As The PrideStaff Companies’ Founder and late long-term CEO, Rogers lived out his passion for providing people with opportunities to create meaningful careers. From its Home Office in Fresno, Rogers steadily built his single-office staffing firm into a nationwide, commercial franchise with a mission to “Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.” Over the years, Rogers’ vision for growth and development also resulted in the launch of four additional divisions – PrideStaff Financial, Rx relief, Insurance Relief, and G.A. Rogers & Associates – each dedicated to serving niche areas within the staffing and recruiting industry. Today, the PrideStaff system operates over 85 franchised and company-owned locations across the country and continues to expand each year.

By investing in client and talent experience, PrideStaff has become the only staffing firm in the U.S. and Canada with over $100 million in annual revenue to earn ClearlyRated’s coveted Best of Staffing® 10-Year Client and Talent Diamond Awards for the last three consecutive years. The 10-year Diamond Award is earned by fewer than 0.5 percent of all staffing firms, placing PrideStaff in a truly elite group of companies that lead the industry in satisfaction.
