LBF Recruitment Strategies, LLC, an independent executive recruiting and career coaching firm, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and a Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the Women’s Business Development Center, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“We are so honored to have received these certifications as a women-owned business,” said Lisa Frank, Founder and CEO of LBF Recruitment Strategies, LLC. “Today, the value of diversity in the hiring process, and in the overall workplace, is more prominent than ever. As we speak to top talent, they consistently remind us how important it is that their current and/or future employers are committed to diversity and corporate social responsibility – both internally, and with who they choose to work with, externally. These certifications will allow us to expand our reach, and to partner with more corporations and organizations who share these values.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Development Center is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

The SBA’s WOSB Federal Contract Program provides greater access to federal contracting opportunities for WOSBs and economically-disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). The Program allows contracting officers, for the first time, to set aside specific contracts for certified WOSBs and EDWOSBs and will help federal agencies achieve the existing statutory goal of five percent of federal contracting dollars being awarded to WOSBs.
