Nelson, one of the largest independent staffing companies in the U.S., has won Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Talent Award for providing superior service to job seekers. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, Inavero’s Best of Staffing Talent winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based on the ratings given to them by the permanent and temporary employees they’ve helped find jobs.
