AccruePartners continues to land on The Charlotte Business Journal’s annual list of Largest Women-Owned Companies in the Queen City!

Accrue proudly ranks 13th of the 29 women-owned companies surveyed by the Charlotte Business Journal this year.

Learn more about the two women who started it all below!

In 2002, Patty Comer and Amy Pack met early in their careers at an international staffing and search firm where they grew together through the ranks of the organization. They were constantly traveling across the nation to manage accounts, branches, and regions. After starting families, they decided to start their own firm with a focus on high touch relationship building. Today, that focus on relationships has become the core of AccruePartners and its tagline: “Building People, Companies, and Careers.”

They sought to make a significant impact on the industry by investing in the relationships that most agencies cold-shouldered as transactions versus serious career and organizational investments. They understood the importance of developing long-term connections between all stakeholders to create added value for everyone involved; their principal mantra being “candidates become clients and clients become candidates.” Soon enough, and with a little help from a generous investor, they were able to form their humble 2-person partnership in Charlotte, NC. Over the years, AccruePartners saw exponential growth as Patty & Amy cultivated countless relationships across the Queen City. Their unwavering commitment to make an impact by working with passion & purpose every day launched AccruePartners to the forefront of the staffing industry.

Today, AccruePartners is one of Charlotte’s Largest Staffing Agencies and is renowned for being one of Charlotte’s “Best Places to Work” and a six-year recipient of “Inavero’s Best of Staffing Award.” With a continued eye on growth, the company has been listed as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America nine times by Inc. 5000. As they continue to experience extraordinary growth, Patty and Amy have stayed true to their values. They work diligently to ensure that the core values that started the company and attributed to its success are instilled in every employee, candidate, and client interaction across what is today a nation-wide organization.

AccruePartners is confident in its future in the staffing industry. The combination of being headquartered in Charlotte, NC, one of the fastest-growing cities in America, continued low unemployment numbers and record numbers of boomers retiring make for the perfect combination for AccruePartners, its employees, candidates, clients, and suppliers to excel.

AccruePartners has earned Clearly Rated’s Best of Staffing Client and Talent Diamond Awards after winning the Best of Staffing Client and Talent Awards for the last six years for providing superior service to their clients and placed talent.

Clearly Rated’s (previously known as Inavero) Best of Staffing winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based entirely on ratings provided by their clients and the candidates they’ve helped find jobs. On average, clients of winning agencies are 2.2 times more likely to be completely satisfied and candidates who have been placed by winning agencies are 1.7 times more likely to be completely satisfied with the services provided compared to those working with non-winning agencies.

Focused on helping to connect people with the right job openings at companies, AccruePartneres received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from their clients and talent. With fewer than 2% of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada earning the Best of Staffing Award, just 35% of 2019 Best of Staffing winners earned the Diamond Award distinction. The winners of this award truly stand out for exceeding client and candidate expectations.

We’re honored to have been awarded this achievement for our sixth consecutive year. It is truly a testament to our AccruePartners Business Systems process and the unwavering commitment our team has to our clients and candidates. Thank you!

The success of any company boils down to its ability to accomplish two critical tasks: bringing top talent into the organization and keeping them there as long as possible. The pages of every issue of our HR Insights Magazine contain advice and guidance from industry thought leaders that can give your company a leg up in managing all aspects of the employment lifecycle within your company.

Sure, companies that stick with conventional recruitment and retention strategies can still build connections with candidates and employees. But as new technologies and practices continue to alter the hiring landscape, organizations that don’t change with the times may find themselves falling farther and farther behind. Want to explore new possibilities for your company? Reach out to AccruePartners – we can help!

Lizzy joins the AccruePartners team as a Staffing Manager on our Enterprise Accounts team, supporting our national accounts across multiple industry verticals.

Originally from Rockville, Maryland, Lizzy attended High Point University where she studied Broadcast Journalism.

In her new role, she hopes to become a subject matter expert across multiple lines of business and skillsets. “The enterprise team gives me the opportunity to learn new IT, Engineering and Technical business skillsets. I hope to use those skills to provide even higher quality recruiting to enhance the continued successes of the organization.”

AccruePartners has landed Forbes America’s Best Recruiting Firms List!

Forbes worked with analytics firm Statista to compile the list of America’s best-recruiting firms. AccruePartners is proud to announce we have landed on the Best Professional Recruiting Firms list for our second year in a row. The list ranks 250 professional search firms, nationwide, which place employees in roles with less than $100,000 in annual income.

To conduct its research, Statista first consulted with sources like trade organizations and company databases, identifying about 4,000 recruiters in each of the two categories. Then it invited 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. View the full list here. 

This great achievement stems directly from our tagline: Building People, Companies and Careers. For us, this is more than our tagline, this is our promise to our candidates and our clients. Our beliefs, philosophies, and core values all center around that promise. By coming alongside clients and candidates alike, fostering relationships that surpass the norm, we become a cornerstone for mutual prosperity. A culture of staffing excellence, built on a solid foundation for success, we’re so proud to be honored on this list.

AccruePartners has been awarded Inavero’s Best of Staffing Client and Talent Diamond Awards after winning the Best of Staffing Client and Talent Awards at least five years in a row for providing superior service to clients and job seekers.

Focused on helping to connect people with the right job openings at highly sought after companies, AccruePartners received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 22.8% of our clients and 40.4% of our talent, significantly higher than the industry’s average. With fewer than 2% of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada earning the Best of Staffing Award, just 33% of 2018’s Best of Staffing winners earned the Diamond Award distinction and 1% of all winners won both the client and talent diamond award. The winners of this award truly stand out for exceeding client expectations and we’re honored to be a part of such a great achievement.

On average, clients of Inavero winning agencies are 2.5 times more likely to be completely satisfied, and talent of winning agencies are 3.6 times more likely to be completely satisfied with the services provided compared to those working with non-winning agencies.  Award winners make up less than two percent of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada who earned the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence.
