San Diego, CA, /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Staff Smart, Inc. (“Staff Smart”), a national IT/technical staffing, recruitment, and talent management agency, announced today they have won Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Talent Award for providing superior service to job seekers. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, Inavero’s Best of Staffing Talent winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based completely on ratings provided by the permanent and temporary employees they’ve helped find jobs.
“Staffing firms are giving top companies a competitive advantage as they search for talent in North America,” said Inavero’s CEO Eric Gregg. “The 2017 Best of Staffing winners have achieved exceptionally high levels of satisfaction and I’m proud to feature them on BestofStaffing.com.”
