Staff Management Ranked #1 Managed Service Provider (MSP) on HRO Today's 2011 MSP Baker's Dozen

CHICAGO (June 1, 2011) — Staff Management | SMX, the industry’s leading provider of full spectrum staffing solutions, today announced that it has been named the #1 Managed Service Provider (MSP) on HRO Today magazine’s highly anticipated Baker’s Dozen list of the top 13 MSP providers. Results were announced at the HRO Today Forum in Las Vegas on May 25, 2011, where Staff Management presented case studies with two of its valued MSP clients.

The MSP Baker’s Dozen rankings are statistically based on survey results from current buyers of MSP services and stress quality of service as the most important dimension in overall ranking. Top position on the MSP Baker’s Dozen is the most coveted industry ranking because of its emphasis on customer experience, rather than spend under management, as the most important measure of quality.

“We are honored to have been selected as the number one MSP provider in the industry,” said Joan Davison, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Staff Management | SMX. “We owe this ranking to our remarkable clients and hard-working service teams and are extremely grateful to both.”

Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedExpertise and HRO Today added, “Staff Management was ranked the number one MSP provider while delivering some of the most complex MSP solutions in the industry. The strength and depth of their MSP solutions were on display at last week’s MSP Summit where Staff Management’s successful client partnerships were showcased in two dynamic client case study presentations. I congratulate Staff Management on their first place finish.”

“While we are taking a moment to celebrate this win as a company, we intend to redouble our efforts to ensure that we continue to offer our clients the highest level of service in the industry,” continued Davison. “In follow-up to the Baker’s Dozen rankings we will launch an initiative to gauge our value proposition across all of our service lines and to identify opportunities for improvement as we strive to build sustainable value for our clients.”
