January 28, 2019

With unemployment remaining near historic lows and 10 percent projected job growth in the accounting sector between 2016 and 2026, PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that their Akron office has added a PrideStaff Financial Division to their existing operations.

Building on the tremendous success of PrideStaff Akron, PrideStaff Financial Akron will specialize in accounting and financial staffing, offering expanded services for area companies seeking accounting and finance specialists. Owner/Strategic-Partner Kevin Pratt will be heading the new PrideStaff Financial Division, and he is looking forward to serving new clients and job seekers. “PrideStaff is an exceptional user of technology, which we will leverage to better serve our clients and candidates in the high-demand accounting and finance sector. Even in this difficult hiring climate, our technology and processes have helped us source and place qualified talent quickly and cost-effectively,” said Pratt. “Our team complements advanced recruiting technology with local market connections and in-depth candidate interviews to create great matches between the individual and our clients’ needs.”

“Deborah Wood, Staffing Consultant for PrideStaff Financial Akron, and I are excited to expand our current offerings,” continued Pratt. “Our new staffing and placement capabilities will help us connect qualified professionals with employers who need their talents for career-building job opportunities – driving success for everyone in the employment equation.”

As a national staffing services organization, PrideStaff Financial provides outstanding service and results by removing the guesswork from staffing. PrideStaff Financial was developed to meet the specific staffing needs and challenges associated with accounting and finance, from accounts payable and receivable staffing to executive recruiting.

The success of PrideStaff Financial’s approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry. According to Inavero, a business intelligence firm specializing in the staffing industry, PrideStaff Financial earned a client Net Promoter® Score (NPS) as high as or higher than other well-known brands such as Amazon and Netflix.
