Newly Launched Staffing Firm Focuses on Excellence
April 5, 2016 - (Radnor, PA)—Today, WGroup, a Management Consulting firm focused on technology, announced the creation of upGrow, an IT Staffing company. Recruiting quality IT talent is a challenge for many large organizations and upGrow promises to provide a higher standard of staffing resources.
upGrow is a response by WGroup to serve a rapidly emerging market that is of critical importance to customers. Contingent labor is strategic to most organizations as it allows them to scale quickly and remain agile in a competitive marketplace.
Many IT leaders today are frustrated by staffing firms who submit unqualified resumes, take extended time to produce viable candidates, and place the full burden of screening for quality back on the client. upGrow is unique in that it leverages WGroupPrincipals, seasoned IT and business leaders with 20+ years of experience, to assess needs and vet resources. This reduces the length of the recruiting cycle on the client side and ensures a greater success rate of submitted candidates. Furthermore, Principals of WGroup are connected to thousands of quality resources, enabling upGrow to staff a majority of roles with personal connections and referred talent from their network.
"With the full force of WGroup Principals and their collective networks, upGrow is uniquely prepared to provide first-class IT staffing services," observes Kerry Marker, General Manager of upGrow. "Our candidate search and evaluation process is driven by IT leaders - not recent college graduates like many other firms - ensuring that upGrow represents the best on both sides of the equation."
"Customers want successful outcomes, and we are committed to supporting that goal at all costs. WGroup's leading consultancy, coupled with upGrow services, empowers us to assess client needs, align qualified candidates, and reduce time to value."
In addition to deep industry experience, one of the most significant competitive advantages of upGrow
is their unique commitment to candidates. With an emphasis on quality over quantity, upGrow
works closely with potential employees to meticulously and professionally assess their experience, skill, and career objectives.
