Floyd Lee Locums Named Best Staffing Company to Temp For by Staffing Industry Analysts

Charleston, SC, March 11, 2020 – Floyd Lee Locums has been named the Best Staffing Company to Temp For winner for 2020, based on feedback from the physicians, dentists and clinicians they serve. Floyd Lee Locums was also named a Best Staffing Company to Work For winner, recognizing the quality of their company culture for internal employees. The Best Staffing Firms awards are given annually by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, and recognize employers for their top performance in engaging and deploying talent.

“Our firm has grown so much since our inception 3 years ago,” said CEO Natasha Lee. “And I say ‘our’ on purpose because it truly feels more like a family here. We set out, together, to provide a concierge experience for clinicians—all supported by an extraordinary internal team of staffing industry veterans. To know that’s celebrated inside and outside our walls is truly humbling.”

“When I started, my recruiter really got to know me, and he has never suggested someplace that wouldn’t be a good fit,” shared Dr Nicole Edwards, a family medicine doctor who has worked for the company since 2018. “With other agencies, you sometimes feel like a number; they are hurrying to get you placed. Not at Floyd Lee Locums. It is an honor to work for them and be part of their team.”

SIA’s Best Staffing Firms to Work For is conducted across the entire temporary staffing industry, including healthcare, technology, financial accounting and creative services. They survey all of the healthcare providers working for the company in a temporary or contract position. The ranking considers six key engagement categories in its evaluation, including communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics, and trust in leadership.

“Being recognized by the incredible people we work with every day is confirmation of the difference we are making in the industry and the impact of our concierge model,” said Floyd Lee Locums VP of Client Services Kemi Upchurch. “All of us have built our careers in the staffing industry. This recognition means that showing up, building exceptional facility relationships, supporting clinicians career goals, and believing that small acts can amount to great success are paying off.”

“This success isn’t just the story of Floyd Lee Locums,” said Chairman of the Board Matt Floyd.  “Every triumph, every placement, and every patient are rooted in a people first methodology mastered during our time at Trinity Healthcare Staffing Group. The tradition of excellence honed there and brought to Floyd Lee Locums will only continue to flourish in this team’s capable hands.”

Over 250 firms sought participation in the program this year, which was conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, NE-based company. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete an online survey that measured key engagement categories, focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits.

In order to gather statistically sound results, participating companies must have reached a minimum level of employee participation, based on their total number of employees. Companies were ranked in each category according to their overall score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
