WALTHAM, Mass., February 16, 2017 – The Bowdoin Group announced today they have won Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Awards for providing superior service to their clients and job seekers. Inavero uses the Net Promoter Survey to measure customer satisfaction and The Bowdoin Group received scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 60% of their clients, outrageously higher than the industry’s average of only four percent (4%).

Inavero’s Best of Staffing winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based completely on the ratings given to them by their clients and the candidates they’ve helped find jobs. With client and talent satisfaction scores significantly higher than the industry average, award winners make up less than two percent of all recruiting firms in the U.S. and Canada who earned the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence.

“We are honored to be recognized once again. The feedback we receive from our clients and candidates is indispensable, and knowing our mission to ‘change the way people think about recruiting’ is making an impact with the people we serve is a rewarding,” said The Bowdoin Group’s Founder and CEO, David Melville. “We serve the innovation economy by focusing on relationships, not just transactions, and that’s what sets us apart from other firms.”

“Recruiting firms are giving top companies a competitive advantage as they search for talent in North America,” said Inavero’s CEO Eric Gregg. “The 2017 Best of Staffing winners have achieved exceptionally high levels of satisfaction and I’m proud to feature them on”
