GrapeTree Medical Staffing, a leading employment agency in the healthcare industry announced today that they have won ClearlyRated's Best of Staffing® Talent Award for providing superior service to job seekers. Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing Talent winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based entirely on ratings provided by the permanent and temporary employees they’ve helped find jobs.
