Top Rated IT & Engineering Staffing Firms: First Half 2023

Jul 18, 2023

It’s no overstatement to say that IT & engineering companies are in an arms race for top talent. Coveted skill sets like electrification, autonomy, machine learning & AI, cloud native computing, and others require highly technical training & significant experience. 

What’s more, the abrupt layoffs in the tech sector have sent ripples of disruption across the entire market. Recruiters are challenged to identify, attract, and retain top IT & engineering talent amid a flooded market. 

These dynamics are further exacerbated by the global talent market, as outsourcing long has been common practice in IT & engineering fields. While you can acquire great talent this way, there are complex laws, visa processes, tax considerations, and other red tape that many companies simply don’t want to deal with. 

To attract and recruit top talent, recruiters need to stand out from the crowd. In an industry where you Google “recruiters are…” and end up with unflattering (to say the least) responses, those recruiters who prioritize building trust among their candidates will succeed in 2023 and beyond. 

The following IT & engineering staffing firms have distinguished themselves from the competition in the first half of 2023. Their top ratings demonstrate great success in the following areas:

  • Capturing real-time feedback from candidates, clients, and placed talent
  • Automating instant action on feedback
  • Measuring & improving organizational performance
  • Promoting success stories and building social proof to elevate their online reputation

Here are the Top Rated IT & Engineering Staffing Firms for the first half of 2023.
