Winning service quality scores indicate widening gap between industry leaders and laggards.

FRESNO, CA – PrideStaff Financial, a leading recruiting and placement firm for the financial industry, today announced they have each been named to Inavero’s 2013 Best of Staffing™ Client and Talent List. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fourth annual Best of Staffing list provides the only statistically valid, objective, service quality benchmarks in the industry and reveals which staffing agencies are delivering exceptional service to their clients and job seekers.

This year’s client list highlights a growing divide among the industry’s leaders and laggards, and identifies PrideStaff Financial as one of the best staffing agencies for companies to call when they are looking to hire accounting and finance professionals. In addition, being named to the talent list highlights PrideStaff Financial dedication to job seekers and identifies PrideStaff Financial as one of the best staffing agencies for job candidates to call when they are in need of employment.

“We understand that recruiting and retaining highly skilled accounting and professionals is the key to our success,” said PrideStaff Financial Vice President Ryan Williams.  “We leverage our years of accounting and finance experience to offer sound career advice and great career opportunities to the job seekers we counsel.”

“By facing a strong focus on our candidate experience, we’re able to attract higher caliber talent, ” continued Williams.  “Through attracting top-tier talent, we’re able to match the right-fit candidate with our clients more quickly.  This has helped us earn the Best of Staffing Client list this year. “

Less than one percent of all staffing agencies in North America receive the Best of Staffing award for service excellence. Utilizing the Net Promoter® methodology, the 2013 Best of Staffing Client winners achieved satisfaction scores quadruple the industry average. This stark contrast in scores is a clear indication that the firms who have earned their way onto the 2013 Best of Staffing list truly stand out for their service quality. PrideStaff Financial received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 77.5% percent of their clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 39 percent. 

“Few things are more important to companies than the employees you hire,” said Inavero Founder and CEO, Eric Gregg.  “The same holds true for candidates on their quest for employment. Staffing agencies have proven to successfully connect companies with permanent and temporary employees. Since the end of the recession, the staffing and recruiting industry has created more jobs than any other single industry in the country**, yet so many companies and job candidates don’t take advantage of this expertise and resource. Our hope is that both companies and talent use the Best of Staffing lists as a benchmark to help select a staffing agency that can either secure the talent or employment opportunity they need.”
