Vista Resource Group (founded in 2012) and Empower Technical Staffing (2015) were each formed with a fundamental commitment to provide value to their clients and candidates beyond what they could experience from traditional staffing agencies.
With decades of combined recruiting and staffing experience, both companies excelled in their respective markets, far exceeding their growth goals. However, both companies immediately experienced the same challenges facing any successful firm wanting to improve: how to automate and improve upon decades-old and often manual recruiting processes, and at the same time increase the quality of the placement process.
Early on, Ryan and Dan collaborated on improved processes, leveraging technology, a shared vision and a strong desire to execute. It wasn’t long before both realized that they had created some amazing technology that any senior recruiter would want to use. In 2019 Vista and Empower merged, and Empower Associates was born.
