  3. 3. As the economy slowly continues its recovery, organizations will continue to rely on the staffingindustry to help them maintain the flexible and skilled workforce they need to meet ever-shiftingdemands. The number of temporary job placements in January increased by 7% compared to the sameperiod in 20111, and cautiously optimistic economic projections continue to point toward opportu-nity for exceptional staffing and recruiting firms. The industry will likely continue to see demand fromtheir clients, though with growth expected to remain slow, only top firms will continue to outpace theindustry. In the next 3 to 5 years clients will expect their staffing partners to not only continue deliver-ing top talent quickly, but also provide recruiting expertise during this time of change.The Best of Staffing™ Program The CriteriaInavero’s Best of Staffing Award, presented Participating staffing and recruiting firms wereby CareerBuilder, showcases staffing firms required to survey clients they had worked withthat provide exceptional levels of service to during a recent consecutive 3 month period.their clients. Many staffing firms claim to Inavero’s three-question survey asked survey recipi-have the best client service, but very few ents to rate their satisfaction with the firm. A mini-can actually prove it. The staffing firms who mum response rate of 20% (with at least 15provide a truly remarkable experience now responses) or 500 responses per brand were requiredhave a means to prove their commitment to to ensure the score’s validity. The Net Promoterexcellence. Score® (NPS) methodology, made famous by authorParticipation in the Best of Staffing Client and former Bain consultant, Fred Reichheld, wascompetition has doubled each year since used as the basis for gauging client satisfaction.its inception, and continues to award fewerthan 1% of all staffing firms with this recog-nition. Those recognized on the 2012 Bestof Staffing Client list earned the distinctionbased on the strength of more than 176,000survey responses. Each response is a mea-sure of the experience that clients had withthe staffing firm they work with. Client Experience Recent research by Inavero found that Best of Staffing Client winners were more than 3 times as likely to identify ‘culture match’ as the most important attri- bute to ensuring a successful placement. Those who didn’t make the list were more likely to identify matching technical skills as the most important attri- bute. Great firms understand what clients have long believed – culture fit is as important, if not more important than merely matching a set of skills to an applicant – and those firms who do it well are rewarded with loyal clients. During a highly volatile time for staffing firm clients, the level of responsiveness staffing firms have with their clients plays a significant role in how happy clients are working with a staffing firm. We found that more than half of Best of Staffing Client winners get back to their clients within an hour. This com- pares to only 25% for those who didn’t make the list.
