Awards on Table 5.5.22

North Little Rock, AR, May 19, 2022. Career Staffing Services, a firm that connects employers and job seekers, announced today that it was named the winner of the SBA Arkansas Women-Owned Business of the Year. This award is part of the SBA National Small Business Week (NSBW) Awards which recognizes businesses for their hard work and commitment to their local community.

“The team at Career Staffing Services has worked hard since the pandemic keeping its clients staffed and helping Arkansans get back to work,” said Beverly Smith, Owner of Career Staffing Services. “We got creative, thinking outside the box, looking for ways to do things differently.”

The 2022 Arkansas Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year award honors an outstanding woman-owned and controlled business that has been operating for a minimum of three years. Completed applications were judged by a panel of impartial federal employees to evaluate the nominee’s demonstrated success in business. This criteria included staying power, growth in sales and number of employees, and significant contributions to their local communities based on the documentation submitted with the nomination package.


“Women-owned businesses are a growing sector of the small business and entrepreneur population across Arkansas and nationwide,” says Edward Haddock, SBA Arkansas District Director. “This award celebrates those woman-led organizations that are part of the changing fabric of our economy. It’s vital that we recognize woman-owned small businesses and their CEOs, like Beverly Smith, for their impact on the American economy.”


This award is a “reaffirmation” that Career Staffing Services is recognized to be the leader in our industry by helping more businesses save time and money by recruiting, screening and filling their job openings. This frees up business owners and managers to spend their day focused on daily business activities and improve productivity.


“We are honored to be recognized by the SBA Arkansas as the Women-Owned Business of the Year,” said Beverly Smith.
