The Salem Group Wins ClearlyRated's 2019 Best of Staffing Client Diamond Award

OAKBROOK TERRACE, ILLINOIS – FEBRUARY 8, 2019 – The Salem Group, a leading staffing and workforce management company in the Chicagoland area, announced today that they have earned ClearlyRated's Best of Staffing® Client Diamond Award after winning the Best of Staffing Client Award at least five years in a row for providing superior service to their clients. This distinction is given to just .007% of Staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada! Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing Client Diamond winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based entirely on ratings provided by their clients. On average, clients of winning agencies are 220% more likely to be completely satisfied with the services provided compared to those working with non-winning agencies. 

Focused on helping US companies find the right people for their job openings, The Salem Group received high satisfaction scores from 79.2% of their clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 35%. With fewer than 2% of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada earning the Best of Staffing Award, just 35% of the 2019 Best of Staffing winners earned the Diamond Award distinction. The winners of this award truly stand out for exceeding client expectations.

“When you think of The Salem Group, we want you to think: selection, speed and innovation,” said Dori Lorenz, President and CEO of The Salem Group. “We are honored to serve so many exciting, leading strategic client partners and to bring great opportunities to our assignment employees. The past year has been one of innovation for The Salem Group; we debuted our breakthrough service offerings STAFFLINEsm, Staffing by the Numberssm, and Win the Talent Racesm and we cannot wait to exceed all our client’s expectations in the year to come. We aren’t slowing down.”

"In today’s historically tight labor market, hiring managers, procurement professionals, and HR managers need a clear and reputable way to vet potential staffing and recruiting partners,” said ClearlyRated’s CEO Eric Gregg. “Best of Staffing Client Diamond winners have set themselves apart from the competition by demonstrating their ongoing commitment to client service, consistently investing in a survey and feedback program that brings transparency to the client experience at their firm. I’m thrilled to showcase these service leaders alongside their validated client ratings and testimonials on!”
