Review a Recruiter

 Right now, professional staffing has never been in a more precarious position. Rapid technological advancements—not the least of which are large language models & generative AI—are changing the skill sets required for quality professional work. 

What’s more, there’s talk of AI putting once-safe jobs at risk—including media professionals, lawyers, accountants, and more. 

Then there are changing dynamics surrounding where people work. After an onslaught of remote work in 2020, it seems that, according to research from Gartner, remote or hybrid work is settling at just under 50% of the workforce. From a purely statistical perspective, not everyone who wants a remote position will be able to get one. 

A lot of professionals are nervous about these dynamics and how they will impact career longevity. They’re looking for people to support them along the way, provide a sense of stability. That’s where professional recruiters come in.

Professional staffing firms who build trust among their talent base, invest in meaningful relationships, and assume an advisory relationship with their talent base will be best positioned to succeed in 2023 and beyond. 

The following professional staffing firms have distinguished themselves from the competition in the first half of 2023. Their top ratings demonstrate great success in the following areas:

  • Capturing real-time feedback from candidates, clients, and placed talent
  • Automating instant action on feedback
  • Measuring & improving organizational performance
  • Promoting success stories and building social proof to elevate their online reputation
