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, TEKsystems is a flagship company of Allegis Group, the world’s largest talent management company with annual revenue of C$15.7 billion ($11.5 billion USD) in 2016. TEKsystems provides a range of IT services and IT staffing solutions. Our value proposition is cemented in our real-word insight into what works in IT and our unmatched network of the highest-calibre IT experts.
In a single year, we deploy over 80,000 IT consultants to support critical IT engagements at over 800 client sites in Canada and over 6,000 client sites in the United States, including 82 percent of the Fortune 500. With more than 100 offices, 5,000 employees throughout Canada, the United States, 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 labour market, and superior speed and selectivity when recruiting IT consultants to manage and support IT initiatives.
With C$5.6 billion ($4.1 billion USD) in annual revenue in 2016, 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. Over the course of TEKsystems’ history, we have earned the respect of our clients and our consultants by delivering on our promises and outperforming our competitors.
Our core values guide our hiring decisions, shape how we make a meaningful impact in the IT market, and define the TEKsystems culture.
