The Bowdoin Group Wins Both ClearlyRated’s 2019 Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards

Posted by Lauren Kendall on February 7, 2019
WALTHAM, Mass., February 7, 2019 – The Bowdoin Group, an executive search firm with deep expertise in leadership search and strategic build-outs for innovative companies, announced today that they have earned both ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards after winning the Best of Staffing Client and Talent Awards at least five years in a row for providing superior service to their clients and placed talent. A leading provider of Net Promoter® based satisfaction surveys, ClearlyRated (formerly known as Inavero) uses the Net Promoter survey to measure customer satisfaction on a scale of -100 to +100. For the sixth year in a row, The Bowdoin Group has greatly surpassed the industry average of 11, receiving an NPS score of 80.

This is the first time that the The Bowdoin Group’s is receiving both ClearlyRated’s Client Diamond Award and Talent Diamond Award for 2019, honors given to a select few that have earned the highest customer satisfaction results. With fewer than 2% of all executive search and recruiting firms in the U.S. and Canada earning the Best of Staffing Award, just 23% of the 2019 winners earned both Diamond Award distinctions.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized for the sixth consecutive year for our hard work and dedication to excellence. We appreciate each piece of feedback we receive from our clients and candidates as it is indispensable in our journey to fuel the innovation economy. Both clients and candidates should expect more from an executive search partner,” said The Bowdoin Group’s Founder and CEO, David Melville. “Unlike other search firms, our investment in client partnerships runs deeper than just a successful placement. We cultivate relationships that last longer than a successful executive search due to our commitment to providing exceptional service through our subject matter expertise, our connections to the ecosystem, and our incredibly smart, conscientious, and diligent team.”

“In today’s historically tight labor market, hiring managers and job seekers need a clear and 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 ongoing commitment to client and candidate service, consistently investing in a survey and feedback program that brings transparency to the client and talent experience at their firm.” The Bowdoin Group is honored by these awards and intends on providing superior service to their clients for years to come.
