BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ: CCRN), an industry leader in healthcare staffing, announced today that it has several brands named to the 2014 Best of Staffing® list. Cross Country Healthcare has always been driven by quality in every service area offered. The Company has brands named to both of the Best of Staffing® lists, which include Cross Country Staffing 2014 Best of Staffing® Client Winner; Medical Doctor Associates 2014 Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Winner; MedStaff 2014 Best of Staffing® Talent Winner; Cejka Search2014 Best of Staffing® Client Winner; Medical Doctor Associates - Advanced Practice 2014 Best of Staffing® Talent Winner.

"Cross Country Healthcare holds this recognition in utmost regards as it confirms our commitment and steadfast belief that quality must always come first and never be compromised. Our high level of service, to both clients and colleagues, is something we pride ourselves on and is a driving factor in how we perform across all service lines," explains William J. Grubbs, CEO and President of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc.

"The staffing industry is helping organizations bridge the skills gap and add jobs today more than at any other point in U.S. history," said Inavero Founder and CEO, Eric Gregg. "Between the well documented skills gaps and economic uncertainty, partnering with a top staffing agency is more important now than ever. The 2014 Best of Staffing award was earned by fewer than 2% of the more than 12,000 staffing firms in the U.S. and Canada. In an era of scarce talent, hard to fill positions, and ever-increasing expectations these firms have proven they have what it takes to deliver exceptional service to both clients and job candidates. We're proud of the accomplishments of our 2014 award recipients."

Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, the fifth annual Best of Staffing award provides the only statistically valid and objective, service quality benchmarks in the industry. The annual competition identifies which staffing agencies are delivering the highest service quality to their clients and the permanent and temporary employees they help to find jobs.

Utilizing the Net Promoter® methodology, the winner's stark contrast in service quality scores compared to the industry is a clear indication that the winning firms truly stand out from the rest. The 2014 Best of Staffing Talent award winners received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 73% of their permanent and temporary employees, significantly higher than the industry's average of 53%. And, the 2014 Best of Staffing Client award winners received satisfaction ratings of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 73% of their clients, more than double the industry's average of 35%.
