PrideStaff Fresno Honored for Second Consecutive Year with 212 Degree Award for Top Performance

February 27, 2019

In a year already punctuated with multiple awards and accolades, Strategic-Partner Sean Akin is pleased to announce that his Fresno office was recently named the winner of PrideStaff’s 212 Degree Award for the second consecutive year. Presented at PrideStaff’s Annual Conference, this award is bestowed by the national, franchised staffing organization upon the PrideStaff office that continually provides extra effort and contributions to deliver the highest level of client service while expanding the reach of their local office.

“Accepting this award on behalf of my team, two years in a row, is an absolute thrill,” said Akin. “I’m truly honored to lead a team that consistently goes above and beyond for employers, job seekers and our field associates in the Fresno market.

“Every staff member here plays an instrumental role in driving our success,” continued Akin. “While each of us has unique responsibilities, however, we all live out PrideStaff’s mission, ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ every day. This shared mission, combined with PrideStaff’s proven formula for business success, has helped us earn the 212 Degree Award for top performance a second time.”

“It’s a privilege to bestow this high honor upon such a deserving team,” said PrideStaff COO Tammi Heaton. “The Fresno office continues to raise the bar by adding value to their services, strengthening relationships and broadening reach within their market. The success of their efforts is evident in both their financial performance and reputation within the local community.

“It’s incredibly difficult to earn this distinction once, and yet Sean and his team have managed to sustain unprecedented levels of performance, service excellence and expansion for a second straight year,” Heaton continued. “I look forward to the Fresno office continuing to build on their success.”

This award is just the latest in a string of accolades for the leading Fresno employment agency. Last month, Akin’s office was also named winner of The Fresno Bee‘s 2019 People’s Choice Award in the Employment Agency category for the fifth consecutive year. Winners of the annual contest were chosen by The Fresno Bee readers, who voted for their favorite employers in a wide range of business categories.

This places them in a truly elite group of staffing companies that lead the industry in satisfaction.
