Interim Physicians Wins 2022 Best of Staffing 5-Year Diamond Award for Exceptional Locum Tenens Service

Diamond Award winners have received the Best of Staffing award for at least 5 consecutive years, consistently earning industry-leading satisfaction scores from locum tenens providers

For the first time, Interim Physicians has won the Best of Staffing Talent 5-Year Diamond Award for providing superior service to our placed candidates. On the client side, we won the Best of Staffing award for the fifth time.

Awards are based on third-party validated surveys distributed to each staffing agency’s clients and talent by ClearlyRated, an independent research firm. 

This objective feedback distinguishes quality agencies and highlights true industry leaders. On average, clients and candidates who work with winning agencies are twice as likely to be completely satisfied compared to those who work with non-winning agencies.

  • From providers, Interim Physicians received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 82% of candidates, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 40%.
  • From clients, we received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 86% of clients, also significantly higher than the average of 41%.
  • Nearly 40% of providers and clients responded to the survey.


Client responses touted the company’s quality staffing and efficiency, despite the strain on the industry in year two of a global pandemic:

  • “Interim has exceeded the expectations of a stellar company! I’ve been working with the team for the last four years and it has been a pleasure. All of the doctors are professional, highly experienced, and fit in well with our hospital. Days, nights, holidays, Interim ALWAYS comes through for us!”
  • “Interim always provides thoroughly vetted candidates. The entire company works hard to deliver the best service and meet short deadlines. Their diligent work hasn’t stopped – even during the high demand of the pandemic!”


While quickly vetting and credentialing talent, Interim still takes the time to build trust. Providers noted their remarkable communication and strong relationships with their recruiters.

  • “As a new graduate, my recruiter embraced me and made me feel so comfortable reaching out to her. She checks in to make sure I’m adjusting to my new role, and since she’s always available to assist me, it feels like she lives next door!”
  • “I’ve worked with my recruiter for over 10 years and he is the best—I would consider him a friend.”
  • “My recruiter is on point for everything, and I have every confidence that he has my best interest at heart. The onboarding process was easy and communication is always timely. The team goes above and beyond on my behalf!”

Tim Hand, Chief Executive Officer of Interim Physicians, praised his team for their dedication and professionalism.

“Our commitment to supplying physicians who believe in delivering QualityCare to their patients extends across our entire organization. Our stated mission to support that commitment is exemplified in our belief in providing quality of work, quantity of work hours, and excellence in customer service. We are honored and humbled that these attributes were once again recognized by the stakeholders we serve, especially our providers and our clients,” he said.

ClearlyRated survey participants clearly agreed.

“Winners of the 2022 Best of Staffing award have demonstrated their commitment to delivering exceptional service, even as Covid-19 has forced them to reimagine and rebuild their approach to business,” said ClearlyRated’s CEO and Founder, Eric Gregg. “These service leaders have kept the client, talent, and employee experience at the heart of their business strategy, and it’s my honor to celebrate and showcase the 2022 Best of Staffing winners alongside feedback from their actual clients on!”
