Vaco Orlando

#16 SMALL Company

Florida’s population continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and that means a need for more roads, housing, schools and jobs. And jobs are where Vaco comes in. Vaco focuses on accounting and finance, technology, operations, and office professionals, providing the foundation for a staffing and business consulting firm that serves both individuals and companies. Helping clients and candidates fulfill their employment goals is why the Vaco team says it is the best place to work in Florida.

People are at the center of Vaco’s corporate culture — the team, clients and candidates. “Vaco is in the people business,” explains Stephen F. Smith, partner and managing director of financial recruiting. “We are emotionally invested in the people. What separates us from other companies is that we actually do care about each other and their development.”

The Vaco team makes it exciting to go to work every day. Brian Yankelevitz, senior director of operations, says. “We get to help candidates fulfill their professional dreams while helping our clients run efficiently and effectively.”

“What really sets us apart from other staffing agencies is that we care,” says Beau McGlamery, partner and managing director, technology.” And if you put that out into the marketplace, you not only attract internal talent, you also attract great candidates.

“We attract people who can leverage their natural talents and experience. We customize solutions for our clients. They tell us what they want and we make it happen,” adds Denise Bennett-Walls, managing partner, Vaco Orlando. “Our job is to help people achieve their dreams.”

“We take pride in the relationships we build with our clients,” says Bennett-Walls. “That’s the fulfilling aspect of our careers. Our role in the business cycle is to provide talent; I also view it as building lifelong relationships.”

For the Vaco team, it’s those meaningful lifetime relationships that make it the best place to work in Florida.
