PRO Unlimited, Inc.

Acquisition in 2017
PRO was founded in 1991, in response to what they believed was a critical need in the contingent workforce marketplace. The workplace at the time was in the early stages of a dramatic transformation.

This in turn led to a large scale increase in temporary employment staffing, and in the use of independent contractors, returning retirees, freelancers and consultants. A group commonly referred to today as the contingent workforce. While many companies addressed the need to recruit and place workers for this growing workforce, no one was responding to the ever increasing need to manage the overall process. For large corporations, the contingent workforce was quickly becoming one of the most critical and costly elements of their operation. An element that would increasingly present challenges from a management, tax and benefit liability perspective.
