Leading Philadelphia Staffing Firm Wins Major Industry Award

Philadelphia, PA – March 6, 2013 -Magellan Search & Staffing has added two key industry awards to their increasingly crowded trophy case, having been named to the 2013 Best of Staffing Client List and the 2013 Best of Staffing Talent List.

Fewer than 1% of all staffing agencies in North America earned the 2013 Best of Staffing award for providing remarkable service quality to their clients, or for providing an exceptional permanent and temporary talent experience. Magellan earned recognition in both of these key categories.  These awards define the staffing industry’s elite leaders in service quality and their commitment to client satisfaction based on the Net Promoter® Score methodology (a standard metric for measuring satisfaction).

Magellan Search & Staffing secured a place on the Client List by obtaining at least a 55% Net Promoter® Score showing extraordinarily high levels of client satisfaction.

The award announcement stated, “With average satisfaction ratings quadruple the industry average, the Best of Staffing Client winners truly stand out for exceeding client expectations. The average Best of Staffing Client winners received a score of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 74% of their clients.”

To earn a place on the Talent list, Magellan Search & Staffing obtained at least a 50% Net Promoter® Score showing extraordinarily high levels of job seeker satisfaction.

The award announcement continued, “With average satisfaction scores more than double the industry average, the Best of Staffing Talent winners lead the industry in providing an exceptional job candidate experience. The average Best of Staffing Talent winners received a score of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 73% of their job candidates placed into a job.”

“Making the Best of Staffing lists truly is a great honor for us at Magellan,” said Matthew Kenefic, Founder and President. “There’s such a sense of satisfaction being recognized for our vision, and the hard work we’ve invested in bringing it to fruition.”  Kenefic has won some impressive awards himself, being named to Philadelphia’s 40 Under 40 in 2012.

Joe Nicolas, CEO and Managing Partner of Magellan says, “There’s nothing like being recognized within your industry as a leader, not only in growth but in quality service to both clients and talent. That shows that we are committed to serving both with equal quality and commitment.”

At a time when there has been a great deal of attrition in the placement industry, Magellan has been recognized for growth and achievement in numerous awards. They continue to climb the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Top Recruiters List, coming in at number six in 2013, making the list for the third time in three years and fourth in five years. Even more impressive is their recent appearance on the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing privately held companies, growing at a rate of 165% from 2008-2011.

Other recent awards and recognition include:

Philadelphia’s Fastest Growing privately-held businesses in the Philadelphia region (2007, 2008, 2011)

Nominee for Best Places to Work firm in Philadelphia (2008, 2011)

PICPA 40 Under 40 (2012), Brandon Saylor, Managing Director of Magellan’s Accounting & Finance Division)
