Job Seekers and Employers Vote The BOSS Group "Best of Staffing" for a Third Consecutive Year

The BOSS Group Makes Inavero's 2013 Best Of Staffing(TM) Client and Best Of Staffing(TM) Job Candidate Lists; Winning Service Quality Scores Are More Than Double the Industry Average, Indicating a Widening Gap Between Industry Leaders and Laggard

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - February 20, 2013) - In an industry generally troubled to produce high marks for customer satisfaction, creative staffing provider The BOSS Group announced it has been named to Inavero's 2013 Best of Staffing™ lists of award winners. 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 The BOSS Group as one of the best staffing agencies for companies and job candidates to call when they are in need.  As The BOSS Group celebrates its 25th anniversary, this achievement illustrates the company's longstanding commitment to service excellence.

Less than one percent of all staffing agencies in North America receive the Best of Staffing award for service quality. 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. The BOSS Group received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 65.5 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 76.3 percent of their clients, significantly higher than the industry's average of 39 percent.

"We're proud to be the only creative staffing provider with multi-geographic reach to be recognized by Inavero in both the client and talent award categories in the past three years," said the company's president, Conor Smith. "We feel our high net promoter ratings from clients and talent alike are a direct reflection of the success of The BOSS Group's proprietary creative talent assessments.  Our assessments are the best in our industry and give us clear advantage in making quality placements, leading to satisfied clients and satisfied talent. It's one way that we're making a difference in people's lives through the connections that we make." The BOSS Group has seven offices nationwide in major metropolitan areas throughout the US and supplies qualified interactive, creative and marketing professionals to over 400 organizations across virtually every industry segment.

"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."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting.

Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, will explore the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
