About Us

If you didn’t know this about us before, you will soon discover we are extremely proud that Ascent has grown into an award-winning, nationally recognized professional staffing company.  We made it our mission to constantly find innovative ways to deliver our services and it has resulted in being recognized as an industry leader.

Our culture can be represented in a powerful formula that powers an exponential network-  Focus + Passion + Activity = Exceptional Results. It is embedded in everything we do and is the reason behind our continued success. We listen carefully to our clients and our professionals to understand the challenges they face and the opportunities they are looking for. We understand the importance of finding the right person for the job and take the time to thoroughly interview both the client and candidate to ensure a quality fit. We constantly expand and elevate our network by sharing industry, candidate and client expertise.

 

Ascent invests a tremendous amount of time and money to ensure that we provide value to our client and industry relationships. Our CEO often tells clients that before they select a vendor they should leverage the knowledge of their peers at other companies in the industry. To help facilitate this, Ascent founded three of the fastest growing professional associations that are discipline specific, cost nothing to participate in and are exclusively for buyer practitioners who are employees of enterprise clients. These associations are: Project Portfolio Management Professionals (PPMP), Data Management Professionals (DMP) and Contingent Workforce Management Professionals (CWP).

 

We have offices located in key cities nationwide, including Walnut Creek, San Francisco, Chico, Denver, Charlotte, Chicago and Scottsdale.  We place highly skilled professionals in Technology, Business Professional & Pharma (Clinical & Scientific) positions—both contract and direct hire—at Fortune 1000, mid-size, and startup companies in a range of industries. 

 

So, what’s the big take-away?  We are so much more than a "temp agency." Our team invests in long-term relationships with both our clients and professionals in ways that our competitors wouldn’t dream of. Our specialized recruiters have helped transform Ascent into a preferred vendor at 65 Fortune 1000 companies.
