BOSTON, Feb. 27, 2014

BOSTON, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Randstad US announced today that four of
its specialized verticals have individually been named to Inavero's 2014 Best
of Staffing™ list of award winners. The fifth annual Best of Staffing Award,
presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, gives the industry's only
statistically valid and objective service quality benchmarks. The award gives
an overall look at which staffing agencies are delivering the highest
satisfaction levels to their clients, as well as 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 Randstad 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 in their service quality. The winning Randstad verticals
received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 64.8 percent of their
permanent and temporary employees, significantly higher than the industry's
average of 53 percent. Also, 65.7 percent of Randstad clients rated them as a
9 or 10, compared to just 35 percent for the average staffing agency.

"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."
