Nelson Wins Inavero’s 2014 Best of Staffing Awards for Client and Candidate Satisfaction

Share Article

Inavero winners rise above the staffing industry with satisfaction scores more than double the industry average.

Nelson announced today it has been named as one of Inavero’s 2014 Best of Staffing Award winners on both the Client side and the Talent side. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, this award provides the only statistically valid and objective service quality benchmarks in the industry, revealing which staffing agencies are delivering the highest satisfaction levels to their clients and the permanent and temporary employees for whom they find jobs. Less than 2% of all staffing agencies in North America have been named to either list, and fewer still make both lists as Nelson has done, excelling in both categories.

“We’re proud and honored to be part of the elite 2% of staffing firms in the US and Canada, chosen by the people we serve, to win two Best of Staffing awards,” said Donna Farrugia, CEO. “It’s a very real confirmation that the work we do building relationships and understanding the needs of our clients to quickly and effectively fill open positions is appreciated and rewarded.”

Staffing firms competing to make the Best of Staffing lists underwent a rigorous survey process followed by careful analysis of responses to determine satisfaction levels. Nelson secured spots on both lists by earning an average Net Promoter Score considerably higher than the national staffing industry benchmark for client and talent satisfaction.

"The staffing industry is helping organizations bridge the skills gap and add jobs today more than at any other point in U.S. history,” said Inavero Founder and CEO, Eric Gregg. “Between the well documented skills gaps and economic uncertainty, partnering with a top staffing agency is more important now than ever. In an era of scarce qualified talent, hard to fill positions, and ever-increasing expectations, these firms have proven they have what it takes to deliver exceptional service to both clients and job candidates. We're proud of the accomplishments of our 2014 award recipients."
