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."  

®Net Promoter, NPS, and Net Promoter Score are trademarks of Satmetrix Systems, Inc., Bain & Company, and Fred Reichheld. Net Promoter Score is calculated by taking the percentage of respondents who, on a scale of 0 to 10, rate their likelihood to recommend the staffing agency with a score of 9 or 10 (promoters) and subtracting the percentage who rate the staffing agency a 6 or lower (detractors).

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
