Veritude Named Boston-Area's Third-Largest Temporary Placement Firm by Boston Business Journal

Leading Staffing Service Provider Holds Market Position

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - Veritude, a leading staffing services provider, today announced that, for the second straight year, it has been selected by the Boston Business Journal as the third-largest temporary placement firm in greater Boston.

In an annual survey conducted by the journal, 25 Boston-area temporary placement firms were ranked based on the average number of temporary workers they supply daily throughout Massachusetts. Veritude supplies more than 1,300 temporary workers daily in Massachusetts for clients in the biotechnology, financial services, insurance, engineering, and technology industries.

"In this last year, we have experienced a recession, high levels of unemployment and price pressures. We have been able to hold our market position because of the quality work and high level of service performed by the professionals at Veritude each day. We are committed to delivering the best talent and customer service to companies in the Boston area and beyond, and we are pleased our commitment has been recognized by the Boston Business Journal," said Jack Conrad, President & CEO of Veritude.

Veritude finds the highest quality talent for organizations through its temporary staffing, direct hires and managed services programs. In addition, it provides hiring companies with complimentary white papers on topics such as behavioral interviews, managed services programs and co-employment. In response to the rising unemployment rate and in keeping with its tradition of corporate social responsibility, the company recently launched its free, online Veritude Advice Fair Series, which gives job seekers unprecedented access to staffing experts' guidance on timely topics such as resume creation and recruiter relationship management.
