PRO Unlimited rebrands to Magnit

Integrated Workforce Management (IWM) platform provider, PRO Unlimited, has changed its name to Magnit, effective immediately.

The move is part of a larger rebranding effort to showcase the company’s commitment to stewarding the next era of work. The new name comes with a tagline—The Evolution of Work—which speaks to the company’s mission to empower every worker and organisation across the globe to be exceptional at work.

Kevin Akeroyd, CEO of Magnit explained: “The nature of work itself is changing, and our company is evolving alongside it. For the past 30 years, PRO Unlimited has been known for its work shaping the direction of the contingent workforce industry alongside some of the world’s most notable brands. We have evolved from a professional services company into an industry-leading integrated workforce management platform, connecting companies with the best talent while helping them get ready for the evolution of work. We believe Magnit fully embodies who we are today and reflects our vision for the future.”

The platform allows business leaders to think more strategically when managing contingent workers, which can reduce programme spending by up to 40 per cent. It eliminates the complexity of deploying disparate point products while giving companies ultimate flexibility. Furthermore, the company’s commitment to vendor neutrality puts it at the centre of the evolution of work, delivering lower costs to employers.

Magnit is also introducing a new brand identity to complement its name change. It includes an updated logo and orange and blue colour palette that’s indicative of the bold new direction of the company. The company has already started sharing its new identity with its 3,000 workers globally. It will continue its transition from PRO Unlimited into Magnit over the coming months, rolling out the new identity to clients, within its offices, and through a new website, Magnitglobal.com.

Vidhya Srinivasan, Chief Marketing Officer at Magnit commented: “Today marks the start of a new era for our business. The Magnit logo is a bold, human form with a magnetic force, representing our ongoing work to draw people together. We are a unified company with a simple goal: to shape and deliver the next chapter in workforce management for employees, clients, suppliers, and partners. Our new identity speaks to this goal by emphasising our ongoing efforts to connect companies with today’s dynamic workforce.”

Creating a positive visitor experience in a Hybrid world of work

While some personnel are finally returning to the office – the great majority of organisations (up to 83 per cent) anticipate a hybrid mix of on-premises and working from home to continue for the foreseeable future.

This means that when it comes to providing access to the workplace, where once it was simply enough to maintain a welcoming reception for visitors, organisations today must also keep a close eye on access permissions in real-time to keep buildings safe and secure while ensuring they comply with compliance.

Pitney Bowes Smart Access Management in association with FMJ has produced a new White Paper which explains how to create a welcoming, actively managed environment for authorised people.

It explains how new Smart Access Management™ (SAM) delivers a complete, real-time and data-driven view of all your people, visitors and contractors, to help give you greater control and visibility.
