The JFC Staffing Companies has received significant recognition this past year in the form of nominations and awards. Accolades included being voted “Simply the Best Staffing Service,” being named to the “Best Places to Work in PA” list, and being nominated for the “Business of the Year.”


In August they were voted “Simply the Best Staffing Service” for its 10th executive year. This honor is awarded by Harrisburg Magazine, which polls its 30,000 customers in various fields to determine who is “simply” the best in their industry. These companies are celebrated at a Gala, which took place on September 1st.

“It’s a real privilege for our company to receive this honor 10 years in a row. I remember the first year we won, and every year the excitement builds for the list to come out. This is one of those awards that really speaks to how we are doing. Our company is built on our Customer Commitment, and as long as our customers continue to rank us Simply the Best, then I know we are doing something right. Thank you Central PA!” – Jim Carchidi, CEO

In September, JFC was named to the “Best Places to Work in PA” list for the 6th time, and for its 3rd straight year. This program identifies and recognizes top employers in the state of PA, and will host a formal ceremony event on December 1st ranking the list of companies. “Best Places to Work in PA” is coordinated by the Central Penn Business Journal, Team PA Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and Best Companies Group.

Also in September, JFC was nominated for Business of the Year by the Central Penn Business Journal (CPBJ). CPBJ honors Central PA’s top companies in different categories based on number of employees; 1-50 employees, 51-100 employees, 101+ employees, and emerging business of the year.

JFC will be recognized in the 51-100 employees category on November 7th, and the award for “Business of the Year” will be given to the top company. At this event, individuals are also nominated for their entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and commitment to the community. Jim Carchidi, JFC’s “Chief Enthusiasm Officer”, was nominated for Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015.

In addition to this accolade, CPBJ has recognized JFC’s leadership by nominating the company’s senior management team for the Executive Management Team Awards. This is its inaugural year and the ceremony will take place December 13th.

“Linda Carchidi, President & Founder of the JFC Staffing Companies. “It is quite an honor to have our executive team recognized for their leadership. It is also a reflection of the entire organization. Great leaders march in arms with great employees. That being said, this nomination is for our entire JFC work family.”
