To do this correctly, we will need your assistance for this once-in-a-decade research project that will benefit all that utilize a flexible technical workforce.

The research will include input from all stakeholders within the technical staffing community: Clients, Consultants, and IT and Engineering services firms from all over the United States.  Information will be gathered through an online survey.  The data will be analyzed on an aggregate basis with confidentiality maintained and presented as a comprehensive best practices report.  Only the independent research firm will have access to the raw data.


This research will help you understand the key drivers for all stakeholders:

  • What makes for successful staffing firm and consultant relationships?
  • How can IT firms optimize the value they derive from their technical staffing providers?
  • What types of positions and projects are best suited to utilizing consultants?
  • What do IT firms consider the most important qualities in a technical staffing firm?
  • What attracts high-demand technical talent?
  • What can all stakeholders do better?

The survey should only take 15 minutes of your time. Please click here to take the survey.

You will also be entered into a drawing for your firm to win a complimentary telephone consultation with the lead analyst on the results of the study and its implications.
