BOSTON, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Randstad US, Professionals announced
today that three of its specialized staffing verticals have individually been
named to Inavero's 2013 Best of Staffing™ lists of award winners. Presented in
partnership with CareerBuilder, the fourth annual Best of Staffing lists
provide the only statistically valid, objective, service quality benchmarks in
the industry and reveal which staffing agencies are delivering exceptional
service to their clients and the permanent and temporary employees for whom
they find jobs. This year's lists highlight a growing divide among the
industry's leaders and laggards, and identifies Randstad US as one of the best
staffing agencies for companies and job candidates to call when they are in

"We are thrilled to have several of our professional businesses recognized by
both Best of Staffing lists again this year," said Dan Foley, President of
Randstad US, Professionals. "These rankings are a true reflection of the
dedication to best-in-class service that our internal employees share, which
allows us to deliver the highest quality experience for customers and
candidates alike."

Less than one percent of all staffing agencies in North America receive the
Best of Staffing award for service excellence. Utilizing the Net Promoter®
methodology, the 2013 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 their way onto the 2013 Best
of Staffing lists truly stand out for their service quality. The winning
Randstad verticals received average satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10
from 69 percent of their permanent and temporary employees, significantly
higher than the industry's average of 48 percent. They additionally received
satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 72 percent of their clients,
significantly higher than the industry's average of 39 percent.

"Few things are more important to companies than the employees you hire," said
Inavero Founder and CEO, Eric Gregg. "The same holds true for candidates on
their quest for employment. Staffing agencies have proven to successfully
connect companies with permanent and temporary employees. Since the end of
the recession, the staffing and recruiting industry has created more jobs than
any other single industry in the country**, yet so many companies and job
candidates don't take advantage of this expertise and resource. Our hope is
that both companies and talent use the Best of Staffing lists as a benchmark
to help select a staffing agency that can either secure the talent or
employment opportunity they need."
