Proposal Development Consultants Wins ClearlyRated’s 2019 Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards

February 07, 2019

ROCKVILLE, Md. – February 7, 2019 – Proposal Development Consultants, a leading staffing provider of qualified proposal contractors, permanent candidates, and surge support, announced today it has received ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards. The company has won the Best of Staffing Client Award for eight years running and the Best of Staffing Talent Award for five consecutive years, consistently earning industry-leading satisfaction scores from its clients as well as the talent it has placed. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based entirely on ratings provided by clients and job candidates. On average, clients of winning agencies are 2.2 times more likely to be completely satisfied with the service provided compared to those working with non-winning agencies.

Proposal Development Consultants received satisfaction scores of nine or 10 out of 10 from 82% of clients and 85% of job seekers, significantly higher than the industry’s average. 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. Proposal Development Consultants is the only proposal staffing solutions provider to be recognized with ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing awards.

“Service excellence and employee centricity are the principles that guide us each day – this recognition validates that we remain on track, continually delivering value to our clients and the talent we place,” said Conor Smith, CEO, Proposal Development Consultants. “It is incredibly gratifying to our team to win both the Best of Staffing Client and Talent Diamond Awards this year.”

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