FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Patricia Griffin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ICon Professional Services, has been named as one of the 100 most influential people in the staffing industry by Staffing Industry Analysts, the leading global advisor on the contingent labor industry, for the second consecutive year. The annual Staffing 100 list showcases influential executives and thought leaders who have made a difference not just to the industry but to the millions of people they have helped to find work.
“I’m honored to be recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts again this year,” Griffin said. “For 17 years, our entire team of experts at ICon has focused on providing companies with contingent workforce management solutions, including 1099 contractor compliance. I’m incredibly proud to lead our team in achieving a 100% track record in defending worker classification audits.” She added, “As our recent study shows, there is still work to be done on the classification front as 69% of executives surveyed said they have great confidence they would pass an audit, but in reality, only 55% percent actually reported passing. We’re committed to helping companies recognize these blind spots.”
As Founder and CEO, Griffin oversees the strategic direction, vision and development for ICon. A consummate staffing professional, Griffin combines a passion for technology with a propensity for action to develop and launch new solutions that set the standards in the industry—from her early career at Adecco through the ongoing achievements at ICon. Under Griffin’s leadership, ICon has been continually recognized for its growth and success, including "HR Product of the Year" by Human Resource Executive magazine, "6th Fastest Growing Privately Held Company" in the Silicon Valley (2000) by the Silicon Valley Business Journal, "Top 500 Women-Owned Business Nationwide" by Working Women magazine, and "Largest Women-Owned Business" in Silicon Valley. Griffin has also received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and the San Francisco Business Times Women in Leadership Award.
