Our History & Culture
In 1983, we founded Aerotek, a company that paired contract employment and consulting with superior customer service. As we grew, we built and acquired new businesses to provide our customers and candidates with greater degrees of partnership and value.
Today, Allegis Group represents a thriving network of specialized companies all fiercely committed to our mission — to provide organizations with the highest-quality talent solutions, while also creating significant opportunities for individuals to realize their professional aspirations and achieve personal success.
