In the beginning, founder Clifford Stivers set his Chicago recruiting firm apart by devising his own system of testing skills, hiring a statistician to validate test scores, and instituting the concept of quality control, revolutionary practices for the industry at the time. As the company grew, he expanded into Chicago’s suburbs in the early 1950s, established branch offices on both coasts in the 1960s, then gradually added offices in major cities across the country. Stivers soon became a full-service recruiting firm with a national reach, providing jobs to thousands of people from coast to coast.
Stivers remains on the leading edge of recruiting, harnessing best practices and advanced technology to give clients and job candidates experiences that transform into long-lasting relationships. While the nature of work has changed through the years, we have always shown a proven ability to find the right talent in an ever-changing job market. Now part of the TalentLaunch Network, our teams have access to better talent and innovative technologies that give us an edge over your typical recruiting company.
