PrideStaff Fresno, Modesto and Visalia Offices Named to 2021 Best of Central Valley Business List

December 20, 2021

PrideStaff, a nationally franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that their Central Valley offices were named to the 2021 Best of Central Valley Business List by The Business Journal. This is the seventh consecutive win for PrideStaff Fresno and the fourth consecutive win for PrideStaff Visalia in the Best Employment Service category.

The Best of Central Valley program has evolved tremendously since its inception eight years ago. The program has grown from 22,000 votes cast in 2014, to more than 150,000 in 2021. This year, website visitors chose their favorite local businesses in 35 categories. An invite-only crowd of around 100 gathered at Fresno’s Elbow Room earlier this month to celebrate the accomplishments of those crowned the “cream of the crop” by The Business Journal’s readers.

“It’s incredibly meaningful to be voted a leading staffing agency in our market, especially since those votes come directly from members of the community we serve,” stated Sean Akin, Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Fresno and PrideStaff Modesto. “I’d like to thank everyone on our team for helping us be the Central Valley’s favorite for seven straight years. By truly listening to employers and job seekers, adapting our solutions to their needs, and living our mission to ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ we’ve been able to deliver great results and unmatched service to our customers.”

Blanca Covarrubias, Owner/Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Visalia, spoke to her office’s recruiting and service advantages as key factors in their success. “Today’s recruiting market is incredibly challenging, and my team has gone above and beyond to help employers find the talented people they need for temporary and direct roles,” stated Covarrubias. “It’s an honor to work with such great candidates and clients in the Central Valley. Thank you to all of the readers who voted for us.”

“Despite a multitude of pandemic-related restrictions and critical candidate shortages in their markets, Sean, Blanca and their teams have done a tremendous job acting as true partners to both clients and candidates – creating exceptional customer experiences and connecting great people with meaningful employment opportunities,” said PrideStaff Co-CEO, Tammi Heaton. “We are thrilled for our PrideStaff Central Valley locations for earning this recognition once again, and we look forward to supporting their continued success in 2022 and beyond.”
