PrideStaff Fresno Wins The Fresno Bee’s “People’s Choice Award” for Third Straight Year

March 29, 2017

PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that their Fresno office was recently named winner of The Fresno Bee’s 2017 People’s Choice Award in the Employment Agency category. This is the third consecutive year PrideStaff Fresno has received this award.

Now in its thirteenth year, The Fresno Bee’s People’s Choice Award is a way for the Central Valley to thank area businesses for their hard work. 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.

Sean Akin, Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Fresno, is thrilled to receive this mark of distinction for a third straight year. “This award is especially meaningful because it comes from the people, our valued clients and candidates,” said Akin. “Helping business professionals to solve workforce challenges and job seekers to find rewarding employment is what gives us purpose – and makes us the Fresno community’s top employment agency and recruiting partner.

“PrideStaff’s mission is to ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most’,” continued Akin. “Creating exceptional experiences is what sets our employment agency apart in Central Valley employers’ and job seekers’ minds. By focusing on what clients and talent value most, PrideStaff Fresno will continue making meaningful contributions to our local community, and a real difference in people’s lives.”

This latest honor comes on the heels of two other recent marks of distinction for Sean Akin and his team. Earlier this year, PrideStaff Fresno won Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards for the fourth consecutive year. In addition, Akin was named a 2017 winner of PrideStaff’s President’s Circle Award, recognizing him as one of the national staffing firm’s top revenue producers for 2016.
