PrideStaff Expands with New Staffing and Employment Agency in the Fort Myers Metro Area

June 9, 2020

PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce the opening of a new staffing and employment agency in the Fort Myers Metro area. The new office will offer a full range of staffing and employment services in a variety of professional and light industrial disciplines for employers and job seekers in Southwest Florida.

“Patrick and I are thrilled to be part of PrideStaff’s expansion in Florida, leveraging our firm’s technology, national resources and local market knowledge to connect great candidates with employers who need their talents,” said Lisa Gunther, Co-Owner/Strategic-Partner of the Fort Myers Metro office. “Ours is the fifth PrideStaff office in the state. We proudly live out our mission to ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.’ We are driven by our desire to help people improve their businesses and individual circumstances.

“Combining the personal service of local ownership with the resources and support of a national organization, the Fort Myers Metro office offers the best of both worlds to our client-partners,” continued Gunther. “We’re thankful for the opportunity to use our business experience, as well as PrideStaff’s award-winning business model, in a way that positively impacts our community.”

“We are excited to open the first PrideStaff office in Southwest Florida; Lisa and I have always been driven to help people,” said Co-Owner/Strategic-Partner Patrick Gunther. “Our new venture will allow us to fulfill our passion for helping people, while assisting local businesses in identifying candidates who meet their specific needs.

“It is a great feeling when we create the right alignment between candidates and clients. Everything just fits – and everyone succeeds,” continued Gunther. “Ultimately we look forward to being a big part of the Fort Myers business community.”

As a national staffing services organization, PrideStaff provides outstanding service and results by removing the guesswork from staffing. Their locally-owned offices seek to understand client needs and track results, measure feedback and keep it personal. Everything PrideStaff does is designed to serve client-partners and candidates better. The Fort Myers Metro office uses this approach to recruit superior professional and light industrial candidates for employers in their market.

The success of PrideStaff’s approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry. According to ClearlyRated, a business intelligence firm specializing in the staffing industry, PrideStaff earned a client Net Promoter® Score (NPS) as high as or higher than other well-known brands such as Amazon and Netflix. NPS is computed by subtracting a firm’s detractors from its promoters.
