Employee recognition matters. We all know this from our personal experiences. However, if there’s any doubt, volumes of studies confirm it. According to recent research from the US Department of Labour, the number one reason people quit their jobs is because they don’t feel appreciated.
In the New York Times bestseller, 12: The Elements of Great Managing, the co-authors who work for Gallup revisited millions of employee and manager responses to surveys in 114 countries. Their conclusion: People who are recognized for their efforts are less likely to leave their jobs, and more likely to devote energy to it.
The studies reinforce the findings of influential American psychologist William James who inspired countless motivation books. He famously said, “The deepest human need is the need to be appreciated.”
As a staffing agency that has successfully placed more than 57,000 people in the best companies in the GTA over 40 years, The Bagg Group knows that job-seekers need recognition too. That’s why it’s standard practice for our recruiters to listen extensively to candidates, acknowledge their interests, recognize their strengths, and identify their challenges.
We don’t process people, we pay attention to them. That’s how we consistently deliver candidates who are a terrific match for our clients, whether they’re looking for a full-time employee, a contract worker or temporary placement. And it’s how we consistently win awards for best staffing agency.
For the second year in a row, The Bagg Group won research firm Inavero’s Best of Staffing award, presented in partnership with CareerBuilder. This is the nation’s only award that recognizes exceptional service to job candidates.
The Bagg Group went through a rigorous candidate survey to earn the award. Candidates gave us a satisfaction score well above the national staffing industry’s benchmark with most respondents rating The Bagg Group recruiters a 9 or 10 out of 10.
Fewer than 1% of North American staffing have named to the 2011 Inavero Best of Staffing Talent List. We made the list because candidates championed us for providing a positive experience that includes “ample” communications.
All of our staffing solution experts at The Bagg Group are honoured that our candidates recognized our work. And we are delighted to once again have proof that when you give someone their due, they’ll return the favour.
