Posted by Lauren Kendall on February 4, 2020
WALTHAM, Mass., – February 4, 2020The Bowdoin Group, an executive search firm with deep expertise in leadership search and strategic team expansions for growth-stage companies, announced today that they have again won both Best of Staffing Client and Talent Diamond Awards for providing superior service to their clients and candidates for at least five consecutive years.

ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Award winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based entirely on ratings provided by their clients and candidates. On average, clients of winning firms are 3.3 times more likely to be completely satisfied and candidates who have been placed by winning firms are 1.7 times more likely to be completely satisfied with the services provided compared to those working with non-winning firms. The Bowdoin Group received a Net Promoter® Score of 95% from candidates, almost 4 times the industry’s 2018 average of 24%, and an NPS® Score from clients of more than 32 times the industry’s average of -2% in 2019.

This is the second year in a row that The Bowdoin Group is receiving both ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing Client and Talent Diamond Awards concurrently, and the seventh straight year winning ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing Award. With fewer than 2% of all executive search and recruiting firms in the U.S. and Canada earning the Best of Staffing Award, the firm continues to provide world-class services to both clients and candidates.

“Every year, we are honored and humbled to be recognized for our commitment to delivering excellence to each client and candidate. We are grateful for all the feedback we receive, and it continues to push us to deliver top-notch results,” said Dave Melville, CEO & Founder of The Bowdoin Group. “We pride ourselves on being both partners and advisors to our clients and candidates, preparing them to navigate increasingly complex searches. We are fueled by an exceptional team that delivers award-winning results year after year.”

“Now more than ever, it is important for staffing firms to deliver consistently remarkable experiences to the clients and talent they work with,” said ClearlyRated’s CEO Eric Gregg. “This year’s Best of Staffing winners have shown their commitment to exceptional service, committing to not only measuring satisfaction, but taking action on the feedback. I couldn’t be prouder to showcase these industry leaders alongside feedback from their actual clients and candidates on and applaud them for their commitment to making improvements at their respective firms!”
