NASHVILLE, Tennessee—February 15, 2017HealthTrust Workforce Solutions is proud to announce that President and Chief Executive Officer Brendan Courtney has been named one of the 100 “most influential people in the staffing industry” for the second consecutive year by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) in its annual North American Staffing 100 List.

The list represents a selection of movers and shakers in the $145 billion staffing industry who are breaking records, creating new work models, placing people in jobs and helping the world move forward. As the leading global advisor on the contingent labor industry, SIA selects individuals for the list who have made a significant difference to the industry over the past year, influencing perceptions of talent and how it can be used.

According to SIA, “Under President and CEO Courtney’s leadership, Parallon Workforce Solutions in 2016 rebranded as HealthTrust Workforce Solutions to reflect being part of the expanding portfolio of service offerings managed by HealthTrust. The company also bolstered its education business considerably since receiving SIA’s first Healthcare Staffing Summit Innovation Award in 2015 for its StaRN program, which is on track to educate more than 5,000 learners in 2017. Since joining the firm in 2013, Courtney’s focus on a clinician-centric culture and strategic partnerships has paid off with four consecutive years of double-digit growth. HealthTrust is the third largest per diem nurse staffing firm in the U.S. and the eighth largest healthcare staffing firm overall. It is also a leading healthcare staffing managed services provider with more than $1 billion in MSP spend.”
