BWBacon uncovers the secrets of tech talent
It's a web development and design staffing agency
Denver – bwbacon.com – Founded: 2001
Heaps of reports today indicate that the leading challenge for technology companies in need of IT assistance is uncovering, attracting and then retaining top talent.
That’s where BW (“Better With”) Bacon comes in. In step with the culture and community of Colorado business, and taking a people-centric perspective on pairing talent with organizations, BWBacon is a web development and design staffing agency.
Emerging in the thick of the 2008 economic recession, founder Dave Bacon was able to supply contract resources to local companies that weren’t necessarily in financial positions to hire full-time employees. Now, working with organizations from startups to long-standing enterprises, Bacon is in the business of helping companies grow. The tech-talent gap is a particular challenge but, Bacon says, also a major opportunity. Last year, the eight-person crew placed more than 225 individuals in contract and full-time roles.
In 2013, BWBacon was No. 216 on the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies in America and was No. 1,394 last year on the Inc. 5000.
WATCH OUT FOR: The staffing firm is considering entering into some new industry verticals. And while deeply entrenched and committed to Colorado, BWBacon could be tempted to repeat the business model in other geographies down the line.
