Averity Recognized by SIA as One of the Best Staffing Firms to Work for in North America

This is Averity's second year in a row winning this distinguished award.

We are proud to share that Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, has recognized Averity as one of the Best Staffing Firms to Work For in North America for 2021 for the second year in a row! This year’s award shines a spotlight on recruiting firms that “stand out in an especially turbulent year for their ability to keep staff and workers motivated, productive and feeling valued, and for their leadership in putting people first.”

It is an honor to be recognized by SIA for “putting people first,” because that is the heart of what Averity does and the secret of our success. It’s the reason we started Averity. As we like to say here, “Averity is in the PEOPLE business.” We set out to pioneer a change in the recruiting industry through a culture of service that recognizes that 100% of our clients and 100% of candidates are human beings. As a result, our clients include Global Fortune 500 companies, who trust us to deliver the top tech talent in New York City. Our dedication to giving an unparalleled experience to everyone we work with is what makes us different, and it’s integral to the Averity culture.

The Averity culture is something that we’re proud of, and it’s one of the reasons we are a Great Place to Work Certified business. So what is it that makes our culture different? It comes down to our purpose, our mission, and our philosophy.

Our Purpose: Provide an unparalleled experience to everyone we interact with.

Our Mission: Be the best company to work for in New York.

Our Philosophy: Teamwork! We believe in communication and collaboration. Together Everyone Achieves More.

In addition to the way we treat our clients and candidates, we believe in a work environment where the people we work with know they are valued and honored. Averity is a collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment, with a diverse staff from different backgrounds and perspectives. Those differences are our strength. Combined with a team attitude and open communication, they are what lead us to innovation and unparalleled experience offered to everyone we work with.

We offer great benefits, including medical, dental, vision, life, disability and 401k, generous PTO, and a culture that values work-life balance. We also support professional development and opportunities for growth for our employees. But more than that, we believe in giving back to the community. Our team participates in frequent volunteering opportunities, helping out at organizations like the Food Bank for New York City. That’s also what led us to start the Averity Fund.

The Averity Fund started with a desire to invest in the future and do it in a way that would make an impact. One of our earliest beneficiaries was Tech Kids Unlimited, an educational not-for-profit in New York City that helps teach tech skills to students with special needs. Now, we are running a fundraiser to support Feeding America in the wake of COVID-19’s impact on American communities. For us, it’s just the beginning.

The past year has been one of unprecedented challenges across every industry, and recruiting and staffing has been no exception. Throughout the pandemic, the entire Averity family showed unflagging dedication and a positive attitude. We knew that as a team we would get through it together. That’s why winning SIA’s Best Staffing Firms to Work For this year is so meaningful for us. All in all, “putting people first” is what we do, because it’s what we believe. We are specialized, we are niche, we are different. We are Averity.

Nothing but a positive experience working with Averity and Samantha Hoffenberg in particular. Professional, attentive and extremely supportive every step of the way. Samantha actually took the time to really understand my background - no cut and paste here. Shortly thereafter I was matched with three opportunities that really fit my skillset and where I was at in my career. Prepping for interviews was concise and relevant and I was kept informed every step of the way. No guessing where I was at in the interview process. No waste-of-time body count interviews. It was obvious Samantha had solid, long-lasting relationships with the firms I interviewed with as the feedback was always informative. This is one recruiter I can and do actually recommend and the first person I will be calling if the need ever arises again.

I worked with Chris De Crescenzo from Averity, he reached out to me with a role that was right in line with my skills at the time. The role was a great fit for me with an awesome company, and he kept me up-to-date and informed at each turn of the interview process. In almost no time I was at the final interview step and Chris walked me through the on-boarding process and how to go from there. He was a pleasure to work with and professional, ensuring I was prepared at each step of the way so that I was primed for success. It was great working with Averity and especially him!

I had a stellar experience working with Stephanie Grosso at Averity. She's got this great combo of positivity and efficiency, and she helped me land a job less than a month after we first spoke. I felt super supported at every step of the multi-stage interview process, and she's always been available with great advice whenever I needed it. Definitely a high-quality recruitment experience.

Chris Descrescenzo and the team at Averity are phenomenal. 5 stars are simply not enough! I've worked with quite a few recruiters in the past but Chris Descrescenzo and the Averity team are exceptional. I just landed an incredible job opportunity after a single interview. Especially in this tenuous economic climate, I truly appreciated the steps and care Chris took. He was incredibly generous with his time, and made sure the position was a good match. Then, he sent me incredible prep notes which were invaluable. He followed up with me every step of the way and was always there to talk through every possible question. I have never had a more successful interview process. Hands down. I could write a novella about his knowledge, kindness and professionalism. But simply put: He is the best. Thank you!

I had a great experience working with Averity. The team was continually attentive, and very effective at presenting me with the right opportunities and advocating for me throughout the offer stage. I'd highly recommend them!

Matt Kravetz

I just had an extremely positive experience working with the DevOps placement team Alex, Daniel, and Chad. They were all consummate professionals who kept my schedule full with relevant interviews. They also helped prep me and were constantly checking in to make sure we were doing everything we could to find the next opportunity. There is potentially a lot of stress that comes with a career transition, but the folks at Averity really know how to help you focus on next steps and moving forward one day at a time. I couldn't recommend them any higher.
