Winning service quality scores are more than double industry average,indicating widening gap between industry leaders and laggards.
BETHESDA, MD – February 13, 2013 – Proposal Development Consultants, leading provider of qualified proposal contractors, announced it has been named to Inavero’s 2013 Best of Staffing™ lists of award winners, for the second consecutive year. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fourth annual Best of Staffing lists provide the only statistically valid, objective, service quality benchmarks in the industry and reveal which staffing agencies are delivering exceptional service to their clients and the permanent and temporary employees for whom they find jobs. This year’s lists highlight a growing divide among the industry’s leaders and laggards, and identifies Proposal Development Consultants as one of the best staffing agencies for companies and job candidates to call when they are in need.
Less than one percent of all staffing agencies in North America receive the Best of Staffing award for service excellence. Utilizing the Net Promoter® methodology, the 2013 Best of Staffing winners achieved satisfaction scores more than double the industry average. This stark contrast in scores is a clear indication that the firms who have earned their way onto the 2013 Best of Staffing lists truly stand out for their service quality. Proposal Development Consultants received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 77.8 percent of their permanent and temporary employees, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 48 percent. And, received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 96 percent of their clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 39 percent.
Proposal Development Consultants is the only proposal staffing solutions provider to be recognized with Inavero’s Best of Staffing award. “Earning a net promoter score of 96 out of a 100 from our clients and 78 out of 100 from our contractors is impressive, considering 2012 Net Promoter leaders such as Virgin Airlines, Apple, Amazon and Costco benchmarked in the seventies” said PDC Sr. Director of Marketing Jenna Stone. “Our high marks are a reflection of the personalized service that the entire Proposal Development Consultants team prides ourselves on. It’s rewarding to be able to connect valuable, experienced proposal contractors with the organizations who are in need of their skills. Our knowledge of the proposals employment market enables us to make these best-fit connections, and we’re receiving positive feedback all around.”
“Few things are more important to companies than the employees you hire,” said Inavero Founder and CEO, Eric Gregg. “The same holds true for candidates on their quest for employment. Staffing agencies have proven to successfully connect companies with permanent and temporary employees. Since the end of the recession, the staffing and recruiting industry has created more jobs than any other single industry in the country**, yet so many companies and job candidates don’t take advantage of this expertise and resource. Our hope is that both companies and talent use the Best of Staffing lists as a benchmark to help select a staffing agency that can either secure the talent or employment opportunity they need.”
