As part of its annual staffing firm survey, SIA asked firms whether they offered their clients a service guarantee. Nearly half, 47%, offered “a complete money-back guarantee,” while another 32% did not offer a guarantee at all. The remaining 21% offered some other type of guarantee and/or a guarantee only under specific circumstances.

The dominant types of “other” guarantees included: Replacement only, no money back, client-specific arrangements and a promise simply to work things out and make them right.
