The Difference

So just what makes Switchgear different and sets us apart from other recruiters? And most importantly, why should YOU choose to work with us? Here are just a few things that we believe set us apart from the rest of the pack:


We’re industry specialists

In the fields of IT, energy, accounting and engineering, we have long-term experience and relationships. This means that we have a strong understanding of what separates one company from another, and we know where and why a candidate would fit at a particular firm. Whether you’re seeking a position or seeking an employee, our knowledge and relationships in these sectors work to your advantage.



You’re looking for a strong, lasting relationship. So are we. Switchgear is built on relationships with candidates and businesses. We don’t want our relationship with you to end once your search is complete – we want to keep in touch, see how things are going and work with you again in the future when you need us. Every relationship in life takes time, dedication and effort, and we’re ready to build trust and be your teammate for life.



All of our staff members spend at least 10% of their total work time in continuous learning, development and improvement to become more proficient at what we do. This means constantly learning more about the companies and clients we serve, trends in industries and markets, and the roles our candidates will play in reaching company goals.



You understand that having the right people makes all the difference. We do, too – and that’s why we hire only the best. Our team members love what they do, and their influence, persuasion and natural energy all combine to make them corporate matchmaking masters.

Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Switchgear is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and company’s achievement as well.


We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.


Switchgear’s diversity initiatives are applicable – but not limited to –  our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:


  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees
  • Teamwork and employee participation permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives
  • Work / life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs
  • Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for the diversity


Supplier Diversity

As the demographic environment of the United States alters over time, Switchgear must transform with it. We must appeal to an ever more diverse set of individuals.


As Switchgear advances its business into diverse communities, our challenge is also to enlarge the business openings we offer to diverse suppliers. It’s essential to recognize that the economic enrichment of these various societies through business and industry development is crucial to maintain our company’s and our nation’s effectiveness and growth. If we want these communities to do business with us, we must do business with them.


Switchgear is an active contributor in initiatives that support the progress of minority-, woman- and veteran-owned business enterprises and their economic development. We uphold corporate connections and provide sponsorships to vast community involved organizations.
