ATLANTA, Sep. 18, 2023 – We are pleased to announce that the American Staffing Association (ASA) has recognized Kathy Stanifer as its 2024 National Staffing Employee Industrial All-Star for her excellence and impact in the industrial space. Stanifer is a Non-Commercial Driver License (NCDL) driver for ProDrivers, an Employbridge company, where she supports a food bank in the Indianapolis area.
Each year, the American Staffing Association honors employees who exemplify the promise of staffing employment in the industry sectors of Engineering, Information Technology (IT) and Scientific; Healthcare; Industrial; Office – Clerical and Administrative; and Professional – Managerial as part of its National Staffing Employee of the Year award program.
“Kathy represents the Employbridge mission through her diligence and impeccable work,” said Steve Mills, President of Specialty Staffing at Employbridge. “She makes sure that each truck she uses is left in a better condition than when she found it. Kathy prioritizes safety, provides clear communication, works well with her fellow drivers, and never takes shortcuts.”
Among her peers, Stanifer is best known for providing timely in-route status updates, ensuring accurate daily dispatch recordings and for inspiring others with her positive attitude. Stanifer voluntarily cleans the fleet of trucks of a local food bank. Her outstanding work over the past year led to ASA’s recognition to start National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (Sept. 10-16) and National Staffing Week (Sept. 11-17).
“I am humbled to be recognized for the work I simply enjoy doing each day,” said Stanifer. “It’s not just me. I know our team’s work is making a difference in the community and that thought fuels me to do my best.”
In her spare time, Stanifer works with rescue horses providing quality care for surrendered and neglected pets; she even helps rehabilitate some to become service animals. She also cares for home-bound elderly patients by cleaning their homes and assisting with meals.
