What recruiting firms won’t tell you (and you need to know).

  1. Their recruiters are not professionally certified by the American Staffing Association.
  2. They have no quantifiable metrics to show customer satisfaction rates by Inavero Best of Staffing Client List.
  3. They don’t want you to call the local chamber and do a reference on their reputation.
  4. They don’t want you to request a certificate of liability insurance for coverage afforded to you.
  5. They never want you to…call us.

The Staffing Industry is crashing in client satisfaction and promotion scores.

Less than 1% of all staffing agencies in North America receive the Best of Staffing award for service excellence. Utilizing the Net Promoter® methodology, the 2013 Best of Staffing Client winners achieved satisfaction scores quadruple the industry average. This stark contrast in scores is a clear indication that the firms who have earned their way onto the 2013 Best of Staffing list truly stand out for their service quality.

JFC STAFFING COMPANIES MADE INAVERO’S 2013 BEST OF STAFFING™ CLIENT LIST: Receiving satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 87.4 percent of their clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 39 percent.

Winning service quality scores quadruple industry average, indicating widening gap between industry leaders and laggards.

The JFC Staffing Companies announced today it has been named to Inavero’s 2013 Best of Staffing™ Client list of award winners. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fourth annual Best of Staffing list provides the only statistically valid, objective, service quality benchmarks in the industry and reveals which staffing agencies are delivering exceptional service to their clients. This year’s list highlights a growing divide among the industry’s leaders and laggards, and identifies the JFC Staffing Companies as one of the best staffing agencies for companies to call when they are looking to hire temporary or permanent employees.

“The secret sauce to JFC’s success can be summarized in a single sentence; “We make our customers happy. We have this “thing” which was co-created by our entire work family and it’s called JFC Customer Commitment. We are proud and honored to be recognized for our efforts in this way.”

Quantifiable Proof: We beat the industry averages…

Top 1% nationally in client referral rates

Top 5% nationally in placement fill rates

The secret sauce to JFC’s success can be summarized in a single sentence, “We make our customers happy.”

Are companies loyal to their staff?

The JFC Staffing Companies are local family owned.

It all started back in 1975 out of a one room office where husband and wife, Jim F Carchidi and Linda A Carchidi, started JFC Personnel, a permanent placement service.  Today we have a work family of 70+ people strong spread across 3 separate niche recruiting Companies: JFC Temps, JFC Global, and JFC Medical.

What does JFC stand for?  Well if you ask Jim F. Carchidi – it’s his initials.  BUT if you ask his wife, our CEO, it stands for Jobs-Futures-Careers.

In 1997 the Carchidi’s were approached by a broker to sell the JFC Companies to a National big box staffing entity.  Why did they not take the “many” million dollar deal?  They could not, and would not, turn their backs on the employees they call family; risking them being downsized in the acquisition.

So not only are the JFC Staffing Companies LOCAL but the founders are LOYAL – loyal to the family of employees, loyal to their customers, and loyal to the communities that made their dream a reality.

Support us by being part of our family; family of customers.

All our best,

The Carchidi Family and JFC extended family of employees and customers,
