Leading Philadelphia Staffing Firm Wins Major Industry Award


Best of Staffing Client 2014Philadelphia, PA – March 6, 2014 –Magellan Search & Staffing has added another key industry award to their overflowing trophy shelf, having been named to Inavero’s 2014 Best of Staffing™ Client List.

Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fifth annual Best of Staffing Award provides the only statistically valid and objective service quality benchmarks for the industry, revealing which staffing agencies deliver the highest quality of service to their clients. In a year when the staffing industry’s client service quality scores are trending down once again, the Best of Staffing winners scored well above industry service benchmarks. Magellan Search & Staffing is one of the best staffing agencies for companies to call when they are looking to hire temporary or permanent employees.

Fewer than two percent of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada receive the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence utilizing the Net Promoter® methodology  (a standard metric for measuring satisfaction). To make the list, a company must achieve a 55% score (the industry average is 35%).

Magellan Search & Staffing secured a place on the 2014 Client List by obtaining a 78.6% Net Promoter® Score showing extraordinarily high levels of client satisfaction.

The award announcement stated, “The stark contrast in client satisfaction scores compared to the industry average is a clear indication that the firms who have earned the 2014 Best of Staffing Client Award truly stand out for their service quality.”

“Making the Best of Staffing list for Clients in 2014 truly is an exceptional honor for us at Magellan,” said Matthew Kenefic, founder and president. “Being recognized for our vision for providing excellent service to our clients helps us know we’re on the right track.”

Joe Nicolas, CEO and managing partner of Magellan says, “There’s nothing like being recognized within your industry as a leader especially in quality service to clients. We will continue our commitment to quality to ensure we remain on next year’s list.”

At a time when there has been a great deal of attrition in the placement industry, Magellan has been recognized for growth and achievement with numerous awards. They continue to climb the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Top Recruiters List, coming in at number six in 2014, making the list for the fifth time in six years . Even more impressive are their recent appearances on the 2013 and 2012 Inc. 500|5000 lists of the nation’s fastest-growing, privately held companies.

Other recent awards and recognition include:

  • SmartCEO Future 50 Award, 2014
