ClearlyRated's Best of Staffing Firms for WomenWinning firms have proven their commitment to equity and advancement for their female employees.

CHICAGO, IL – June 8, 2023 Brilliant®, a leading direct-hire, contract and consulting firm specializing in accounting, finance, technology and business solutions for the Midwest and Southeast regions of the U.S. labor markets, announced today that it has qualified for the inaugural 2023 Best Staffing Firms for Women list for providing an exceptional experience for the women in its company.

ClearlyRated’s Best Staffing Firms for Women winners have proven to be industry leaders in gender equity and advancement. In order to qualify for inclusion on the Best Staffing Firms for Women list, a firm must invite feedback from 100% of its internal staff on the overall experience of working at the firm. Further, women must comprise at least 47% of the workforce, rate the firm highly, and be highly represented in leadership roles.

Fewer than 0.2% of staffing firms in the United States and Canada qualified to earn the Best Staffing Firms for Women designation, making this a prestigious recognition for staffing firms seeking to hire and retain top internal talent.

Brilliant CEO, Jim Wong, explains, “Our mission is to make people’s lives better, and we are focused on elevating the experiences of women and people of all backgrounds within our firm and beyond. We are proud to accept the Best Staffing Firms for Women recognition, which serves as a testament to our relentless pursuit of inclusivity and empowerment.”

ClearlyRated’s CEO, Eric Gregg, adds, “I’m incredibly proud of the recipients of the inaugural Best Staffing Firms for Women designation,” said “In an ideal world, this award wouldn’t even be necessary. Unfortunately, however, gaps in pay and advancement persist in the staffing industry and beyond. The firms that earned inclusion on the Best Staffing Firms for Women list have created equitable, safe, and supportive workplaces for women, and I couldn’t be more excited to share this news far and wide.”
