Recognized for Exceptional Service to both Clients and Candidates

Boston, Mass.,
— Randstad US, Professionals announced today that four of its specialized staffing verticals have individually been named to both the Inavero’s 2012 Best of Staffing™ Client list and the Best of Staffing™ Talent List, presented by CareerBuilder.

Best of Staffing™ Client List:
- Randstad Finance and Accounting 
- Randstad Technologies
The Mergis Group
- Randstad Human Resources

Best of Staffing™ Talent List:
- Accountants International
- Randstad Engineering
- Randstad Finance and Accounting
- Randstad Human Resources

Best of Staffing, presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, is the nation’s only award that recognizes staffing firms that receive remarkable reviews from their clients, as well as candidates. Fewer than one percent of North American staffing firms have been named to the 2012 Best of Staffing lists.

“We are incredibly proud to see so many of our professional businesses listed on both Best of Staffing lists,” said Dan Foley, President of Randstad US, Professionals. “These rankings speak volumes to the quality of our internal employees and their commitment to consistently delivering service excellence, the highest level of quality support, and an unmatched customer and candidate experience.”

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. Best of Staffing participants secured a place on the lists by earning an average Net Promoter ScoreÒ that was nearly double the national staffing industry benchmark for client satisfaction.

“The staffing industry continues to play a key role in helping to revitalize the economy,” said Eric Gregg, Inavero’s Founder and CEO. “Staffing firms give growth-minded organizations a more flexible alternative to recruiting their own employees, letting both the employee and employer determine if the fit is right for a more permanent position. Both sides receive tremendous value in a flexible, yet meaningful working relationship, and as they engage with staffing firms to help achieve those goals, the service experience they have is very important to their success. The Best of Staffing lists are a resource for businesses and talent who are trying to find staffing firms that provide exceptional service.”
