What makes it so great?
Culture at the IT staffer revolves around “open-book relationships"; workers are expected to share “almost everything" about their personal and professional lives.
In 1983, two entrepreneurs created Aerotek, a company that offered consulting services and an incredible dedication to meeting client needs—no matter how challenging or complex. Clients appreciated Aerotek’s unrelenting commitment to client satisfaction and within the first year of operations, Aerotek earned over $1 million in revenue.
Through the remainder of the 1980s, Aerotek developed several subsidiaries (Data Temps, Aerotek Data Services Group, Maxim Group) that expanded beyond aeronautics, engineering and light industrial markets to meet IT applications, infrastructure and communications needs. TEKsystems® split from Aerotek in the 1990s to focus on and specialize in IT.
Today, a flagship company of Allegis Group and the world’s largest talent management company with annual revenue exceeding $8.2 billion, TEKsystems provides a range of IT services, IT staffing solutions and IT talent management expertise. Our value proposition is cemented in our real-word insight into what works in IT and our unmatched network of the highest-caliber IT experts.
In a single year, we deploy over 80,000 IT consultants to support critical IT engagements at 6,000 client sites, including 82 percent of the Fortune 500. With more than 100 offices, nearly 4,000 employees throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and relationships with 81 percent of the IT workforce, we speak with over 100,000 IT professionals and meet with more than 10,000 face-to-face every week. This reach grants us advanced insight into the IT labor market, and superior speed and selectivity when recruiting IT consultants to manage and support IT initiatives
With nearly $3 billion in annual revenue, our size speaks to our experience and success in helping our clients achieve their business targets. However, being the largest company in our industry is not what differentiates us. Since our founding, we have earned the respect of our clients and our consultants by delivering on our promises and outperforming our competitors.
