What a year!
As we reflect on 2019 and all that it brought, we feel incredibly thankful. Thankful for our clients who trust us to introduce them to exceptional IT talent. Thankful for the technologists that allow us to do what we do best – connect them with good work. And thankful for each other – without the tireless support of every member of our team, past and present, TriCom wouldn’t be what it is today.
2019 marked 25 years of successful IT placements – a milestone paved with transformative connections between businesses and the talent they need. Connections that have earned TriCom ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing award for both Client and Talent satisfaction for the seventh year in a row. This year, TriCom was honored with a TechServe Excellence Award for the second year in a row and was recognized as a 2019 Champion of Business in the Kansas City Business Journal for our record-breaking growth, innovation, and community involvement.
While 2019 is our most successful year-to-date as an organization, it’s not just because of record growth. It’s because of what this growth enabled us to do – support the organizations in our communities that need it the most.
It’s All About Giving Back
This year, we are proud to report that TriCom Technical Services has donated more than $100,000 to deserving charities in and around the Minneapolis St. Paul and Kansas City area.
We consider it our extreme privilege to share our good fortune with the wonderful causes in our communities. Below is a list of our benefactors – some of our favorite non-profits that we were proud to support throughout 2019!
To our clients, candidates, and the Kansas City and Minneapolis St. Paul communities, thank you for an amazing year. Let’s make 2020 even more epic!
