The Big News Out of the Texas Primary: Women

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Looking around: – Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez is beating Andrew White by about 16 percentage points.Two open safe Democratic House seats both went to Latina candidates: Sylvia Garcia in the the 29th district, in the Houston area, and Veronica Escobar in the 16th, in El Paso.
  • Indeed, Escobar and two other women in the 16th combined for about 89 percent of the vote, leaving the rest for three men who ran.
  • Overall that means everyEmily’s List endorsed candidatehas eitherwon or reached a runoff.In the other House primaries with no Democratic incumbent and at least one woman and one man running — solid Republican seats that probably had minimal campaigning — Democratic womenwon (or at least had the lead at last look)…
  • I think most Democratic consultants nationwide would have said for several years that, all else equal, women have a bit of an edge over men in Democratic primaries.
  • All I can say is that if I were advising a Democratic woman trying to decide whether to jump into a tough-looking primary for a winnable seat, these Texas results would make me more comfortable urging her to go for it.

Improve Candidate Quality and Client Satisfaction

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Given the importance of repeat business for staffing firm revenue, all staffing firms have plenty of incentive to improve client satisfaction.
  • A recent CareerBuilder survey of staffing firm clients found that 39 percent of clients rated the performance of the provided hires at a mediocre 5 out of 10.
  • 63 percent of staffing clients cited an increase in candidate quality as the single most important thing staffing firms can do to better meet their needs.
  • Only 27 percent of clients said that applicant volume should be a top priority for their staffing provider, less than half the number of clients that requested an improvement in candidate quality.
  • For more ways to close the perception gap between you and your clients, check out the ebook,Perception vs. Reality: How Staffing Firm Service Compares to Client Expectations.
