Tired of agencies winging reams of resumes at you in the hope that they’ll get lucky? Does the shotgun approach to staffing your project really add value to you as a busy manager? ‘Hoping something sticks’ is not a viable long-term strategy for a successful staffing company. It’s sloppy, inefficient, and frankly, disrespectful. It not only wastes your time, it wastes ours… and our candidate’s. To address that, we match more than buzz words and acronyms. We ‘skill’ match – a level of recruiting sophistication well beyond that of most firms. It’s a level of understanding gained over years of doing what we do. Knowing what each IT professional does on a daily basis helps our Recruiters read between the lines on resumes. Experience that is implied on a resume isn’t lost on our Recruiters. Hence, you’ll get the best and brightest from APR and in short order.

Benefit Options Include
APR Staffing was born from the merger of two well-respected technical staffing firms in Portland. ieSolutions, founded in 2002, enjoyed an impressive reputation as one of the largest locally-owned and most respected technical staffing companies. Professional Resource Group, aka Data Resource Group, founded in 2009, also earned regional acclaim for being a fast-growing and highly-motivated professional staffing agency. Both companies have been recent award winners for the Portland Business Journal's Fastest Growing Private Companies. The two firms, now as APR Staffing, make for one of the fastest-growing and most-respected technical and professional staffing companies in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Additionally, if diversity in your supply chain is important, APR is proud to be a State-Certified Minority Business Enterprise.
Collaborating with our customers, we augment their workforce with technical and administrative professionals. We provide only high-caliber, professional-grade resources throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Our employees receive a competitive compensation package which includes health benefits, disability insurance, access to a 401k plan, paid-time-off and a continued professional development/education benefit.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
TAKING A STAND
This last year, we have witnessed a massive public response to the impacts of overt and systemic racism in America. Large-scale protests in major cities regarding the senseless deaths of minority men and women are happening worldwide. These protests reflect the pain, anger, and trauma of generations of oppression and racially-motivated violence, particularly against members of the black community.
As we watch the news and social media with heavy hearts, we are affected. While all of us try to process our emotions through these appalling events, it is important that we all recognize the importance of a zero-tolerance policy and make our voices heard against microaggressions, prejudices, and inequality.
At APR Staffing and Professional Resource Group, we stand united with citizens of color. We are duty-bound to create a safe, respectful, and dignified workplace for everyone. There is no place in our organization for bigotry, hatred, racism, or discrimination of any kind.
