We're on the list!

You probably know that there are literally thousands of professional recruiting firms in the United States, right? So a list of the top 250 firms would make a pretty exclusive club, right?

Well, guess who’s on the Forbes magazine’s list of the 250 Best Professional Recruiting Firms for 2017? LRS Consulting Services.

Look, we don’t like to brag, but this is the type of honor you only earn by serving your clients and candidates well. You can’t even apply for membership on this list.

That’s because of the way the list was compiled. Forbes worked with the analytics firm Statista to invite thousands of recruiters, employees who have worked with recruiters over the past three years, and H.R. managers to take an online survey. The survey asked them to recommend up to 10 recruiting firms (excluding their own), and it gathered a total of 20,000 recommendations. The companies with the most recommendations ranked highest.  

We ranked 210.

“That’s the incredible part of being on this list,” said Chris Walters, our Vice President and Top Dog. “Completely unprompted, so many of our clients and consultants thought we were among the best that we landed in the top 250 in the country.”

Earlier this year we won the Inavero Best of Staffing award for the second year in a row. That award is also based on surveys of clients and consultants.

These accolades mean just one thing to us—the people we serve appreciate the way we do business. We’re committed to working as hard as we can to make sure their opinion of us never changes.

And we’re very grateful to everyone who helped us reach a place on the Forbes list.
