ReqRoute Has Been Certified by State of Pennsylvania as a Small and Diversity-Owned Business – and More States to Come

Milpitas, CA – Feb 7, 2014: ReqRoute is one of the leading recruitment companies in California. They are well-known for being a small and diversity-owned company that has expanded throughout Silicon Valley. As many companies have multiple locations, it has resulted in the company expanding.

Exponential growth has been seen over the past 12 months with ReqRoute. Recently, the state of Pennsylvania has certified ReqRoute for being a small and diverse business, which allows them to work more effectively with government contractors. This allows the company to offer their recruitment strategies while allowing companies to get credit from the state.

The “diversity” aspect of the certification is an important one when they want to do business with the government. The government has equal opportunity clauses built into their contracts. Contractors must do a specific percentage of business with veteran, female, and diversity-owned businesses. ReqRoute is classified as both diverse and small, making it easier to obtain a larger percentage of business from such contracts.

The recruiting company has also been going through a similar process for certification with Michigan, Illinois, Texas, California, and Arizona. This certification will allow the company to continue to expand. It will also allow them to share their unique strategy of recruitment with a larger number of companies.

The company has gained a reputation for using social media networks for building a social media strategy and leveraging the online word of mouth to reach more candidates. “We offer temporary, permanent, and contract recruitment services. As we expand, our hope is to help larger companies with their recruitment needs across the entire country,” comments one of the recruiters.

Many companies that use recruitment services end up using multiple recruitment companies because of having offices around the country. “It would be nice to use ReqRoute for all of our recruiting needs for the purpose of simplicity,” comments one of their clients that have offices in all 50 states. “It would save us both time and money.”

ReqRoute was named as one of the fastest-growing private companies in 2013 and they continue to build. The company stands behind their products and allow clients to concentrate on the core aspects of their own business without having to worry about the recruitment aspect. Inc.com named the company as one of the 5000 fastest-growing companies and after that, the American Registry seconded the honor with an addition to the “Registry of Excellence”.

While company headquarters remain in Milpitas, California, the heart of Silicon Valley, the certification from the state of Pennsylvania has demonstrated the need for more offices around the state. Executives are currently working on certifications for five other states with more to come later in 2014. This ensures that the company will have the desired presence around the country to meet the needs of their nationwide clients.

In 2010, ReqRoute, Inc., a recruitment company in California, was certified by the Northern California Chapter as a minority business and supplier.

Companies around the country want to show that they have diversity within their operations and therefore they strive to work with other companies and suppliers that are minority-owned. Many companies turn to the NMSDC to learn of who these companies are.

With ReqRoute, Inc. obtaining certification in 2010, it has allowed them to work with an array of companies, including other minority businesses as partners. “We believe that Asians, Hispanics, African Americans, and others deserve to play an important role in business. We are proud to be minority-owned and show diversification wherever we can,” comments one of the company’s executives.

Through their efforts, they see more than 10,000 jobseekers on their website monthly. “Our goal is to work with all of the jobseekers and try to find them a match with one of the companies that we represent,” says a ReqRoute recruiter, one of over 200 that currently work for the company.

Many companies have turned to ReqRoute because they are a minority business and supplier. The client portfolio for the recruitment company includes fortune 1000 businesses and many more. The company has positioned themselves to cover an array of industries including high tech, retail, banking and insurance, healthcare, logistics, entertainment and media, telecommunications, and energy and utilities.

“We enjoy working with ReqRoute because of their commitment to diversity and it allows us to maintain our status of EOE. We know that we will get the best possible candidates and that diversity will always be a top consideration for the recruiters assigned to us,” notes one of the HR Directors for a company that continuously uses the recruitment company.

The NMSDC maintains a listing of all companies that have been certified as a minority business or supplier. When ReqRoute first began working with companies, they knew that they wanted to get this certification status. It was granted in 2010 and it has allowed them to obtain a considerable amount of growth since then. Recently, ReqRoute was named as one of the fastest growing companies in the nation by Inc.com, receiving notification of the honor in late 2013.

The company continues to focus on diversity and is committed to innovative recruitment strategies to allow businesses the ability to focus on their core operations. The company operates out of Silicon Valley, California, but with 200 recruiters, they are slowly able to assist companies with recruitment needs across the country.

The minority-owned business has more than 16,000 job seekers exploring the site monthly and they have a strict screening process that ensures businesses get what they want. “We believe in making sure that candidates will be happy at the company,” comments one of the owners. This allows veterans to feel comfortable that they are being placed into a company that will accept them and benefit from the skills that they have to offer.

Veterans of all ages and from all branches can find employment with the help of the ReqRoute recruitment services. When a resume is sent, the company advises individuals to state that they are a veteran in the cover letter in order to get immediate review. From there, the company will begin working with the list of job openings in order to find a match. When a match is obtained, the veteran will be contacted for secondary interviews and a background check will be ordered.

“While all of our employers are given a short list of individuals who meet the requirements, we are able to sway decisions. Many of them look to us for our expertise in the hiring process,” notes a recruiter for ReqRoute.

Recently, ReqRoute has received a lot of press because they are one of the fastest-growing companies in the country. They are also working on expanding to other parts of the country, including Pennsylvania and Texas. The company has a strategy that allows them to find candidates for employers quickly and their wide range of services are highly sought after by employers who wish to find candidates without going through the hiring process on their own.

Veterans can look forward to a simpler hiring process as well since ReqRoute has made the commitment to help veterans with gaining employment. Resumes can be sent via the company’s website.
