Local Visalia organization Pridestaff nominated and awarded for Best Staffing Agency by The Fresno Bee
VISALIA – Pridestaff, an organization aimed at the assistance of valley locals pursuing work, has been recognized with an award for the Best Staffing Agency of 2022.
Pridestaff in Visalia, a staffing company dedicated to helping people of the Central Valley in career pursuits and opportunities, has been recognized by The Fresno Bee as the 2022 Gold Winner for Best Staffing Agency in May.
This is their second regional award within the last six months after being named as a part of the 2021 Best of Central Valley Business List by The Business Journal in December 2021.
Pridestaff, located by local HomeGoods on South Mooney Boulevard, has aided job-seekers and employers alike in search of career opportunities and workers as they are needed. Blanca Covarrubias, the owner and strategic-partner of the franchise, finds the award to be an important bout of recognition for the organization, which reflects back on the success of Pridestaff’s overall mission.
“I think that it’s an honorable recognition,” Covarrubias said. “This is because there’s a lot of competition out there. But for Pridestaff, it definitely aligns with our mission statement, which is to consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.”
Like any good leader Covarrubias knows that good work is not accomplished alone and recognized her staff’s contributions to their success. “I definitely want to thank my staff members for all the input that they have, all the hard work commitment, their consistency, day over day, to be able to achieve what we have achieved.”
The origin of the organization can be traced back to 2016, when Covarrubias was inspired to bring the franchise to Visalia after her previous five year employment with the corporate office in Fresno. Her inspiration for the company was based on her own experiences that she gained in her line of work.
“I decided to open up my own franchise because I was just very passionate about helping people,” she noted. “I think that, having gone through five years of working in the industry and seeing the success, not only with my current associates, but also with the clients and being able to make that match, it just felt really good.”
