Linium Recruiting is Named One of America’s Best Recruiting Firms by Forbes

Linium Recruiting, the Capital Region’s leading professional staffing agency serving industries ranging from IT, science and engineering to health care, accounting and sales, announced today that it has been named by Forbes to its list of America's Best Recruiting Firms 2017.

Linium was ranked 101st nationwide in Forbes’ listing of America's Best Professional Recruiting Firms. It is the only staffing firm in the Capital Region to make the list.

“I could not be more proud of this prestigious recognition, and in particular, of the outstanding team at Linium Recruiting, which brings passion, dedication and excellence to its work on a daily basis,” said Miriam Dushane, Managing Director, Upstate New York for Linium Recruiting. “We are privileged to help great clients find great employees, build world-class workforces, and make our community a better place to live and work.”

Forbes worked with analytics firm Statista to rank the nation’s best recruiting companies in two categories: professional search and executive search. Using trade organizations and company databases, about 4,000 recruiters were identified in each category. Then, an online survey engaged 18,000 external recruiters and 3,500 job candidates, employees and HR managers who have worked with recruitment firms over the past three years. Each interviewee could name up to 10 recruitment firms per category, and the companies that received the most recommendations were ranked the highest.

This is the second national recognition received by Linium Recruiting this year. In February, Linium won the prestigious Inavero's Best of Staffing® Client Award for providing superior service to its clients, which is given to fewer than 2 percent of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Client winners have proven to be industry leaders in service excellence based completely on the ratings given to them by their clients.

Over the past decade, Linium has assisted more than 300 Capital Region companies in recruiting and hiring over 3,000 employees. Its expertise is also reflected in its exclusive Linium Hiring Index, a quarterly survey that is recognized as the region’s premier measure of the technology job market.
