The HT Group Named Among Top Firms in Austin for Contingency Staffing, Executive Search and High Tech Recruiting

Austin Business Journal includes The HT Group as a top firm for the ninth straight year


Austin, TX (September 28, 2015) – Staffing and recruiting  firm The HT Group announced today it has been named among the top firms in Austin by the Austin Business Journal in three separate categories: Contingency Staffing Firms, Retained Executive Search Firms and High Tech Recruiting Firms. It’s the ninth straight year The HT Group has been included as a top staffing and recruiting firm by the Austin Business Journal and is expected to make the long-running temporary staffing firm list when it is announced later this year.

“We’re proud to consistently rank among the top firms within our industry in Austin for nearly a decade. We’re especially honored to be recognized in several different categories this year,” The HT Group’s CEO/Co-founder Mark Turpin remarks.

The HT Group ranks third among Contingency Staffing Firms, tenth among Retained Executive search Firms and eighth among High Tech Recruiting Firms. The firm was founded as HT Staffing in 2001 to meet the region’s needs for traditional temporary staffing in administrative, light industrial, manufacturing and similar fields.

“As Austin grew and evolved, so did The HT Group,” Turpin adds. “The firm rebranded in 2014 to better reflect its expanded services in Staffing, Professional, Technical and Search.  As it did, the Austin Business Journal’s top company lists evolved for the same reason.”

“We add and drop lists every year in order to provide a relevant reflection of the local business community at that time,” explains Austin Business Journal Research Director Patricia Rogers, citing the addition of the high-tech recruiting list as an example. “Austin is one of a few cities that have a list focused on high-tech recruiting because Austin’s tech scene is one of the most vital sectors of our economy.”
