Inavero Announces Official 2011 Best of Staffing™ Talent List
Inavero, a Portland based satisfaction research firm, announced its 2011 Best of Staffing™ Talent list today. Best of Staffing, presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, is the nation's only satisfaction award that recognizes staffing firms who provide an exceptional experience for the talent they help find jobs. Fewer than 1% of North American staffing firms have been named to the 2011 Best of Staffing Talent List.
Staffing firms competing to make the Best of Staffing list underwent a rigorous survey process followed by careful analysis of responses to determine satisfaction levels. The average Best of Staffing competitor received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 74% percent of their talent, significantly higher than the industry's average of 50%. Best of Staffing participants secured a place on the list by earning an average Net Promoter Score® that was nearly double the national staffing industry benchmark for talent who had been placed in a job.
According to recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, staffing firms have created more new jobs since the end of the 'Great Recession' than any other industry, accounting for 91% of the total job growth. "There is still so much work to be done," said Eric Gregg, Inavero's Founder and CEO. "The most recent BLS report shows 14 million unemployed, nearly half whom have been out of work for six months or more. Job seekers are using staffing and recruiting firms now more than ever before, and it's our hope the Best of Staffing List will help guide them to the firms who have truly created an exceptional experience for the talent they are helping put back to work.
