Best Staffing/Recruiting Agency: Aerotek


Aerotek makes its first appearance on the CBJ’s Best of list this year, reinforcing its emphasis on hiring and placing the right people for the job. “We take a lot of pride in the people we hire, both internally and for our clients,” said Cassie Costigan, director of business operations. “When we make a commitment, we work tirelessly to honor that promise as we know our clients depend on us.”

Aerotek has 33 employees in Cedar Rapids, and counts more than 650 contract employees in Eastern Iowa. Ms. Costigan said Aerotek’s Cedar Rapids office has consistently been rated Best of Staffing in third-party VoC (voice of the customer) surveys. The firm consistently reviews its performance with its clients and contractors, she added, and is always looking for ways to improve.

In addition to multiple wins in the CBJ’s annual Coolest Companies competition, Aerotek was ranked No. 299 in Forbes magazine’s 2018 America’s Best Employers awards.
