Forbes Ranks The HT Group as a Top Recruiting Firm in America
The HT Group is one of only three Austin recruiting firms on the list of professional firms.

Austin, TX – Staffing and recruiting firm, The HT Group, was ranked in Forbes’ 2018 list of America’s Best Professional Firms. The rankings named 250 organizations on each of two lists, differentiated between Professional Recruiting firms (roles less than $100,000) and Executive Recruiting Firms (roles over $100,000). The HT Group is ranked with only two Austin other companies on the Professional Recruiting Firms list–CSI Executive Search and HireBetter.

To create the rankings, Forbes and Statista conducted surveys of 30,000 recruiters and 4,500 job candidates and HR managers who had worked with the recruitment agencies over the last three years. More than 14,500 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.

“At The HT Group, we always strive to go above and beyond – in fact, it’s one of our core values,” said Craig Patterson, Director of Professional Services at The HT Group. “Making Forbes’ list as a Top Recruiting Firm in America gives us affirmation that we are truly living our core values, so it means a lot to us. We are proud of this achievement and look forward to continued success in 2018.”

Founded in 2001, The HT Group adds this recognition to a growing list of accolades, which includes recognition on the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing companies list, Inavero’s Best of Staffing Awards for both Talent and Client Satisfaction, and ranking as a top staffing agency in the Austin Business Journal since 2004.

“We are truly honored to be included in Forbes’ list once again,” said Mark Turpin, CEO of The HT Group. “One thing that is unique about this award is that you can’t apply for it. The lists are compiled by client and candidate feedback and we are proud to be included.”
