Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Advanced Resources, a Chicago staffing agency and talent solutions provider, announced today it has been named as one of Inavero’s 2014 Best of Staffing® Award winners.
Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fifth annual Best of Staffing 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. Yet again, this year’s award outcome highlights a growing divide among the industry’s leaders and laggards, and identifies Advanced Resources as one of the best staffing agencies for companies and job candidates to call when they are in need.
Less than two percent of all staffing agencies in North America receive the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence. Utilizing the Net Promoter® methodology, the 2014 Best of Staffing winners achieved satisfaction scores more than double the industry average. This stark contrast in scores is a clear indication that the firms who have earned the 2014 Best of Staffing Award truly stand out for their service quality. Advanced Resources received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 57 percent of their permanent and temporary employees, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 53 percent. 68 percent of their clients rated them a 9 or 10, compared to just 35 percent for the average staffing agency.
Advanced Resources not only achieved excellent satisfaction ratings; they are one of only six staffing agencies in the U.S. to win both Best of Staffing – Client and Best of Staffing – Talent for the past five consecutive years. This places Advanced Resources in an elite category: a Diamond Award winner.
“We are extremely proud to be a Diamond Award winner and to be one of the few companies in the U.S. to win both talent and client for Best of Staffing for five straight years,” said Rich Diaz, President of Advanced Resources. “This award is based upon feedback from our valued clients and temporary associates and it is truly a testament to Advanced’s focus on experience excellence. We are proud and honored to be recognized for our efforts in this way.”
"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. The 2014 Best of Staffing Award was earned by fewer than 2% of the more than 12,000 staffing firms in the U.S. and Canada. 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."
