Sterling is proud to announce that we have once again earned ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing Diamond Award for Client and Talent, plus the Best of Staffing Employee award for internal employee satisfaction.

ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Award is the only award in the U.S. and Canada that recognizes staffing agencies for service excellence based on Net Promoter Score (NPS) ratings from clients, placed talent, and internal employees. Winners who earn the Diamond Award distinction have won Best of Staffing for at least 5 years in a row, consistently earning industry-leading satisfaction scores. 2022 marks the ninth year that Sterling has received the Best of Staffing awards for client and talent and the second year in which we have earned the Best of Staffing Employee award (this award was introduced in 2020).

Fewer than two percent of all staffing agencies (U.S. and Canada) earn the Best of Staffing designation. On average, clients and candidate of winning firms are twice as likely to be completely satisfied compared to those working with non-winning firms.

“Winners of the 2022 Best of Staffing award have demonstrated their commitment to delivering exceptional service, even as COVID-19 has forced them to reimagine and rebuild their approach to business,” said ClearlyRated’s CEO and Founder, Eric Gregg. “These service leaders have kept the client, talent, and employee experience at the heart of their business strategy, and it’s my honor to celebrate and showcase the 2022 Best of Staffing winners alongside feedback from their actual clients!”

“We’re honored to be Best of Staffing for the ninth consecutive year,” said Rama Kavaliauskas, Sterling President. “Our focus on providing exceptional client and candidate experiences has always been a priority, and we’re committed to continuing to deliver on that promise. We’re also grateful for the Best of Staffing Employee award, which recognizes our commitment to workplace excellence. This is so important to us, especially since we’re an employee-owned ESOP business.”

Participants in the Best of Staffing surveys also had the opportunity to share comments. Here is a small sampling of the feedback we received. Thank you to all who participated and thank you for the business and trust you share with Sterling!

“Prompt, succinct attention to my staffing shortage keeps my department going. Sterling’s knowledge of their talent “bench” related to my immediate needs certainly helped reduce my productivity downtime with the added benefit of an experienced individual to identify and challenge some systemic issues plaguing engineering for years.”

“I have worked with Sterling Staffing and Sterling Engineering on many projects and needs for over 30 years. I consistently get good results and they are good people to work with.”

“Sterling offers strong recruiting, follow-up during the interview process, and excellent management of staff once they are placed within my company.”

“Sterling has always been very responsive; they take the time to learn our needs and find the skills and competencies we need our candidates to possess to be successful. Further, they are able to send the candidates that match the requirements in the salary range we need.”

“Sterling checks on you and prioritizes your comfort with the company you work for and always makes sure you’re happy. If necessary, communication will be made during off hours to ensure whatever issue gets resolved.”

“My recruiter was very good at communicating with me. He helped me get ready for my interview and gave me a lot of pointers throughout the whole process. I could tell he was genuinely happy and excited for me when I got the job, and if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be where I am now.”

“I’ve worked with Sterling for almost 2 years now and I see how professional the people are and how professionally they conduct and promote the company business. Special thanks to my recruiter for his knowledge, fast response, and help … anytime I needed it. Much appreciated!”
