Kforce places in top five of Forbes’ 2017 America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms
Kforce customers discuss the meaningful impact made on their career and businesses
Kforce has earned a top five spot of the 250 firms listed as America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms by Forbes for the second consecutive year. In their announcement, Forbes stated that the list is based on recruiter, candidate, and HR manager feedback and is designed to showcase the most trusted firms in the industry.
Kye Mitchell, Kforce Chief Operations Officer said, “To be recognized by our industry partners is an incredible honor. It means that we are accomplishing our goal to have a meaningful impact on the lives we serve, and I’m grateful to our customers for giving us that opportunity.”
Kforce matches 36,000 highly-skilled professionals with more than 4,000 companies annually. These relationships allow the firm to find the right match for their clients and consultants to achieve success together.
“Kforce took me from a card table at a small med-tech startup to a high-profile environment with groundbreaking technology at a Fortune 10 company,” said Kforce Consultant Michael Armstrong. "The service I received throughout the recruiting process was above and beyond - I couldn't ask for more. Kforce answered every question, even the tough ones, and made sure I knew exactly what to expect in my new role. I speak with my Kforce contact frequently, and my expectations continue to be met.”
"I've worked with Kforce and filled two of the most important positions in my company based on the candidates that they sourced for us. If we hadn't used Kforce, I don't think we would be nearly as successful as we are now," said one management company and Kforce client.
In partnership with analytics firm Statista, Forbes ranked the list based on survey results from 4,500 candidates and HR managers and 30,000 external recruiters. Over the course of three months these individuals were surveyed via e-mail and asked to recommend up to ten recruiting firms. What resulted is a list of 14,500 nominations. Final rankings are based on the number of nominations as well as an assessment of survey responses in the areas of quality of selection, process, communication, candidate fit, understanding of company culture, and price-performance ratio for offered services.
