The “People’s Choice” for Five Years: PrideStaff Fresno Wins The Fresno Bee’s Best Employment Agency Award

March 28, 2019

PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that their Fresno office was recently named winner of The Fresno Bee‘s 2019 People’s Choice Award in the Employment Agency category for the fifth consecutive year.

Over the past fifteen years, The Fresno Bee‘s People’s Choice Award has become a part of the Central Valley’s culture, serving as a way for the community to recognize and thank area businesses for their hard work. Winners of the annual contest were chosen by The Fresno Bee readers, who voted for their favorite companies in a wide range of business categories.

Sean Akin, Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Fresno, credits his entire staff for earning this mark of distinction for the fifth straight year. “We have an amazingly strong and dedicated team here in the Fresno office that goes the extra mile to create the right match between Central Valley employers and hard-working individuals,” said Akin. “Without the diligent efforts of such a talented staff, we couldn’t win this award year after year.

“The People’s Choice Award is extremely meaningful to us, because it shows how living our mission, ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ benefits the employers and job seekers we serve,” continued Akin. “Throughout the year ahead, we’ll continue providing the service and solutions that make us a top Fresno employment agency and recruiting partner.”

This latest honor comes on the heels of several other recent marks of distinction for Sean Akin and his team. Earlier this year, PrideStaff Fresno won ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards for the sixth consecutive year. In addition, Akin was named a 2019 winner of PrideStaff’s President’s Circle Award, honoring him for being one of the national staffing firm’s top revenue producers for 2018, as well as their 212 Degree Award, recognizing his office for delivering the highest level of client service while expanding the reach of their office. This is the second consecutive year Akin has earned both awards, reflecting the success his team’s continued dedication to service excellence creates.
