MADISON, Wisc. – Baker Tilly Search & Staffing, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause LLP (Baker Tilly), announced today it has been named one of Inavero’s 2014 Best of Staffing® Talent Award winners. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fifth annual Best of Staffing Award provides the only statistically valid and objective service quality benchmarks for the staffing industry and reveals which agencies are delivering the highest satisfaction to the candidates they place in permanent and temporary positions.
“Baker Tilly Search & Staffing recognizes the importance of matching top talent with the right career opportunities, as well as helping clients identify and fill key gaps in their talent pool,” said Laura B. Huggett, CPA and president, Baker Tilly Search & Staffing. “We take great pride in providing exceptional service throughout the recruitment process and are honored to be recognized with this prestigious award.”
Less than two percent of the more than 12,000 staffing agencies in North America receive the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence. This year’s awards program again highlights a growing divide among the industry’s leaders and laggards, and identifies Baker Tilly Search & Staffing as one of the best staffing agencies for job candidates seeking temporary or permanent positions. Award recipients are determined using the Net Promoter® methodology1, and the 2014 Best of Staffing Talent winners achieved satisfaction scores nearly twice the industry average. Baker Tilly Search & Staffing received a Net Promoter score of 79.7 percent, more than double the industry’s average of 33 percent.
"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 chief executive officer 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, our 2014 award recipients have proven they have what it takes to deliver exceptional service to both clients and job candidates."
