Lofton Staffing & Security Wins 2019 Best of Staffing Diamond Award

Apr 26, 2019

Lofton Staffing & Security Services, a leading employment agency in the workforce solutions industry, announced today that they have won ClearlyRated Best of Staffing® Diamond Award. This prestigious award is given to staffing firms after they qualify for the industry’s premiere Best of Staffing List five years in a row for providing superior service to their clients and employees (talent). 

Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, ClearlyRated 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 talent. Focused on helping companies find the right people for their job openings, Lofton Services received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 77.7% of their clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 35%.  Fewer than 2% of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada earn the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence. The winners of this award truly stand out for exceeding client expectations.  

"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 commitment to client and candidate service, investing in a survey and feedback program that brings transparency to the client and talent experience at their firm. I’m thrilled to showcase these service leaders alongside their validated client and talent ratings on!”  

“Lofton’s success has always been measured by the talent we employ, from our internal staff to our assignment employees,” said Bart Lofton, Co-President.  “We have always strived to be more than a staffing company, but a true staffing partner to our clients as we help them navigate hiring and staffing solutions.  We are truly honored to have won this prestigious award from ClearlyRated for the past nine years and could not have achieved this honor without the relationships we have built with our clients, employees and with each other.”

We Believe...

Relationships are built…one on one.
Know your people - match interest and talents to the tasks.
Don’t manage by numbers. (They just show if we’re on track.) People do the work.
People should feel better when they leave than when they came – and in turn we feel better.
When we help others, we help ourselves.
Great expectations: fair pay, fair treatment, teach me.
Have fun…and be better.
Work at having fun (51% of the time.) If you don’t feel it, fake it. Having fun is not slacking off. Work is more natural than play.
