PrideStaff Fresno and Visalia Offices Named to 2020 Best of Central Valley Business List

December 14, 2020

PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that their Fresno and Visalia offices were once again named to the Best of Central Valley Business List by The Business Journal. This is the sixth consecutive win for PrideStaff Fresno and the third consecutive win for PrideStaff Visalia in the Best Employment Service category.

While this year’s in-person recognition event was smaller, the accomplishments of the winners and finalists are cause for big celebration across the Central Valley. Awards are based on The Business Journal readers’ votes for their favorite local businesses, and the program has grown tremendously through the years, from 22,000 votes cast in 2014 to more than 130,000 in 2020.

“It’s an honor to be voted a leading staffing agency in our market, especially given the challenges we’ve all faced this year,” stated Sean Akin, Owner/Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Fresno. “We worked extremely hard to pivot our service delivery, developing new ways to meet employers’ and job seekers’ needs. Thank you to all the readers whose votes made us a winner for a sixth straight year.”

“Being named a top Central Valley employment agency by members of our community for three consecutive years is incredibly meaningful and motivating for my team,” stated Blanca Covarrubias, Owner/Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Visalia. “Everyone here at PrideStaff Visalia lives our mission to ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ and it’s heartening to see that both clients and candidates appreciate the lengths we go to in solving their workforce and employment challenges.”

“Though 2020 has been filled with change and uncertainty, Sean, Blanca and their staff have worked relentlessly to meet their community’s needs: adapting solutions, creating exceptional customer experiences and connecting great people with meaningful employment opportunities,” said PrideStaff Co-CEO, Tammi Heaton. “We are thrilled for both offices and look forward to supporting their continued success in 2021 and beyond.”
