Invested in Acquiring and Retaining Top IT talent

To keep up with the ever-changing landscape of information technology, organizations traditionally make hefty investments in their IT infrastructure. However, a vast majority of mid-market companies are still inadequately staffed to address all the challenges that will maintain and more importantly, scale, their operations. For these businesses, fresh talent is challenging and costly to attract and the staff they do have is stretched in countless directions, preventing the development of specialized skills.

To address this need, SWC makes a significant investment in attracting, educating and retaining specialized talent to position at our partners’ disposal. This talent investment is demonstrated by SWC’s consistent ranking in Crain’s Chicago Business as one of the Best Places to Work since 2012, as well as being named as Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for each year since 2009.

In one of the independent interviews conducted by Clutch, a valued SWC partner had this to say about SWC’s consultants:

It’s hard to be an expert in everything, but they have people who specialize in all the important skills.
