AMERICA’S BEST: PrideStaff Makes Top 50 on Forbes’ List of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms for Third Consecutive Year

April 4, 2019

By capitalizing on more than 100 consecutive months of job gains, PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that they were awarded a top-50 spot on Forbes’ 2019 List of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms for the third consecutive year.

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 25,000 recruiters and 5,000 job candidates and human resources managers across the country who worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Statista used more than 17,000 nominations collected to compile two lists of America’s best recruiting firms. The Best Executive Recruiting Firms list ranks 200 firms that specialize in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000; the Best Professional Recruiting Firms list consists of 250 professional search firms that place individuals in roles with salaries up to $100,000. For the third year in a row, PrideStaff claimed a top-50 spot on the Professional Recruiting list.

“Being named to Forbes’ list of Best Professional Recruiting Firms is especially meaningful, because rankings are based on nominations from recruiters, human resources professionals and job candidates who have worked with staffing and recruiting firms,” said PrideStaff COO Tammi Heaton. “Forbes’ and Statista’s goal with creating this list is to help employers determine which agencies best suit their search; claiming a top-50 spot for a third consecutive year is a reflection of the exceptional results we deliver – and a true honor.

“PrideStaff stays at the top of our industry by living out our mission ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ every day,” stated Heaton. “By continually improving the processes, technology and support we give to our Strategic-Partners, they help employers attract the qualified people they need more quickly and cost-effectively.”

This accolade is just one of many that PrideStaff has received in the past year. In addition to being named a six-time Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Award winner, PrideStaff was also ranked on Staffing Industry Analysts’ list of Largest Staffing Firms in the United States for the fourth consecutive year, and named to five Entrepreneur “Top Franchise” lists, including the Franchise 500®. Heaton attributes much of this success to PrideStaff’s proven processes and hard-working, dedicated leadership team.
