The “People’s Choice” for More Than Half a Decade:

PrideStaff Fresno Wins The Fresno Bee’s

Best Employment Agency Award for Sixth Consecutive Year



For sixteen years, The Fresno Bee‘s People’s Choice Award has served as a way for Central Valley community members to recognize and thank area businesses for their hard work. What started out as a simple contest has evolved to become a much-anticipated annual event that is part of the Fresno area’s culture. Each year The Fresno Bee readers eagerly vote for their favorite employers in a wide range of business categories, and award winners are published online.


Always quick to acknowledge his team’s efforts, Sean Akin, Strategic-Partner of PrideStaff Fresno, credits his entire staff for earning this mark of distinction once again. “This award is especially meaningful because it belongs to my entire staff, and it comes from our valued clients and candidates,” said Akin. “Thanks to an amazingly talented and dedicated team who continually exceeds expectations, our Fresno office raises the bar each year in solving employers’ workforce challenges and connecting talented people with rewarding employment.


“Helping the people of the Central Valley community, especially during these past few challenging months, is what gives us purpose – and makes us Fresno’s top employment agency year after year,” continued Akin. “By focusing on what clients and talent value most, our team will provide the service and solutions customers need to reopen our economy and emerge even stronger as a community.”


This latest honor comes on the heels of several other awards and accolades for Sean Akin and his team. Earlier this year, PrideStaff Fresno was named PrideStaff’s Office of the Year for becoming the top-performing office among the franchise’s system of more than 80 locations. The Fresno office also recently won ClearlyRated’s’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Diamond Awards for the seventh consecutive year.


In addition, Akin was named a 2020 winner of PrideStaff’s President’s Circle Award for being one of the national staffing firm’s top revenue producers for 2019, as well as their 212 Degree Award, recognizing his office for delivering the highest level of client service while expanding the reach of their office. This is the third consecutive year Akin has earned these two awards, reflecting the success of his team’s continued dedication to excellent service.
