TUSTIN, CA – March 6, 2014 – Innovative Career Resources (Innovative), the leader in talent acquisition and recruiting for Science, Engineering, Administration, Finance and IT Professionals within the greater Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties, announced today it has been awarded Inavero’s 2014 Best of Staffing® Award for Talent and Client Satisfaction ( Best of Staffing is the nation’s only award that recognizes staffing agencies that receive remarkable reviews from their clients and the people they help find jobs. Fewer than 2% of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada combined earned the exclusive award for raising a new standard of excellence in service quality.

Best of Staffing Client Satisfaction 2014At the core of Innovative Career Resources’ success as an award-winning professional staffing company is their personalized approach to customer service. The team maintains regular contact with over 150 clients and contractors to ensure every person they serve is completely satisfied with the solutions provided. Clients and professional contractors have full and direct access to the owners and staff of Innovative at all times, ensuring quality relationships are cultivated and maintained.

“When Innovative CEO Arlene Key and I joined forces in 2002, we positioned ourselves to truly stand out from other staffing companies,” stated Keith Fiscus, COO and Founder of Innovative Career Resources. “We focused on niche industries that we knew we could truly effect. We bring a very clear understanding of our clients’ needs because we have actual hands on experience in those fields. I started my career as a Combat Medic with a passion for science. Arlene has over two decades of experience in administration and professional staffing. And so we focus on those areas. This award is a huge win for our company.”

To receive the Best of Staffing Award, Innovative Career Resources achieved overall satisfaction ratings of either a 9 or 10 (out of 10 possible) from 75% of their staffing clients. On the staffing side, 70% of their permanent and temporary employees rated them either a 9 or 10, compared to just 53 percent for the average staffing agency.
