Staffing Industry Analysts Includes STS Technical Services on its 2022 Largest U.S. Staffing Firms List

STS Technical Services Top 100 Staffing Firms

Brookfield, Wisconsin, August 16, 2022STS Technical Services (STS), a company that specializes in delivering end-to-end workforce management solutions for the aerospace, defense, manufacturing and industrial industries, is recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) as one of the largest staffing firms in the United States for 2022.

SIA’s list, which has been issued annually for the past 27 years, ranks firms by domestic revenue and covers companies that have generated at least $100 million during the previous year.

“Two years ago, when COVID-19 hit and the global staffing industry was flipped upside down, our company made the decision to shift our entire workforce to a remote setting,” stated Rick Koenig, President of STS Technical Services. “This decision forced us to rethink how we do business. We added new technology, revamped our training processes and continued to deploy unique strategies that would help our clients find the talent they needed to continue to operate effectively in extremely uncertain times.”

In 2021, STS Technical Services bolstered its Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solutions by adding new clients to its roster while introducing additional services to its revolving platform. The company also hired 50-plus internal employees to support the organization’s post-COVID uptick while bringing its total headcount to more than 150 workforce management professionals.

“Prior to COVID-19, our staffing division focused primarily on managing contract employees for the aviation, defense and commercial manufacturing industries,” states Bryan Shaw, Marketing Director for STS Technical Services and its parent company, STS Aviation Group. “During COVID-19, however, the landscape changed. The global aerospace industry laid off a large percentage of its skilled-labor workforce, and we needed to find additional revenue streams to make up for that loss. We already had our hands in the defense, manufacturing and industrial industries, so we tightened our focus there; creating new programs for new clients that turned out to be the revenue push we needed to see our company come out stronger on the other side of the pandemic.”

In 2021, STS Technical Services reported an annual revenue well over $100 million. The team grew its contingent workforce headcount from approximately 1,200 in 2020 to more than 1,700 in 2021. Today, STS Technical Services continues to capitalize on exciting new ventures while delivering its award-winning workforce management solutions to some of the largest, and most prestigious organizations throughout the country.

STS Technical Services Receives 2022 “Top Workplaces Award” by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

In the early days of COVID, airlines felt the pressure of lost revenue as flights were canceled all over the world. STS Technical Services, a staffing company that serves clients in the aviation industry, had a front-row seat as the disaster unfolded.

“The commercial aviation industry was crushed in 2020. Nobody was flying anywhere,” said Bryan Shaw, the company’s marketing director. Regular clients began to put projects on hold as the need for aircraft mechanics and other service personnel dwindled.

As company leaders watched other staffing companies lay off parts of their workforce, the STS team didn’t panic, Shaw said. Instead, they took things one step at a time and transitioned their staffing team to remote work, while shifting to meet the needs of clients outside the commercial aviation sector.

The flexibility resulted in new successes. During 2020, Oshkosh Defense awarded STS a contract to provide workforce services to build a fleet of Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLVTs) that will replace U.S. military Humvees.

Shaw describes the contract as “a huge win for us while staring COVID in the face.”

This is the company’s first year on the Top Workplaces list, ranking fourth out of all midsize companies. Employees describe an environment that is rewarding, independent and supportive.

“I can see that what I’m doing matters,” one employee said. “I’m able to help people further their career and I’m given the support and tools I need to succeed.”

Founded in 1986, STS Technical Services began in Reno, Nevada. It started as a staffing company for aviation alone, but acquisitions and partnerships over the decades brought it into other sectors such as aerospace and industrial manufacturing.

The staffing team recruits for hundreds of technical, trade and engineering jobs, hiring skilled workers who can provide labor for a variety of clients all over the world. Today, STS is headquartered in Brookfield and has several offices around the United States.

Despite the international focus, STS serves a number of Wisconsin companies, including Harley-Davidson and Oshkosh Defense.

Nearly 90% of the staffing team works remotely, Shaw said.

“I think STS has been able to handle that transition really, really well,” he said. “They implemented a lot of tools that allow the team to stay connected.”

One of those tools is a bonus system to reward employees. Shaw said he thinks it is important that hard work is recognized and rewarded within the company, whose mission is “to promote the growth and well-being of our employees by investing in a cultural atmosphere that emphasizes our values and strives towards excellence through collaboration and fostering a sense of PRIDE in workmanship, reliability, innovation, generosity and spirit.”

The company’s PRIDE initiative, which stands for professionalism, respect, integrity, dependability and enthusiasm, seeks to reward those who go above and beyond.

The five attributes represent the qualities that team members strive for. When someone excels in one of these categories, they receive a token that can be exchanged for a monetary reward once they’ve collected all five.

And outside the workday, employees also meet up for virtual happy hours to connect and chat.

“Although I am fully remote, my managers at STS have always worked to make me feel included and valued,” one employee said.

Remote work will remain a facet for the company going forward. Future plans include the continuation of projects in various sectors and securing new clients and contracts.

“Our team is slated to grow,” Shaw said. By the end of 2022, he said the company’s revenue is expected to expand 15% to 20% from pre-pandemic levels.

“I think that’s a huge testament to what we’ve been able to accomplish, the hurdles we’ve been able to overcome, and some of the big, new client signings and projects that we have coming up in the pipeline.”

Welcoming Amanda Gilliam to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Amanda Gilliam

You don’t have to have a background in aviation to thrive in our world. In fact, many who join our staffing team come from industries like marketing, sales, psychology, business development and even social work; to name a few. Our team is unique. Our team is eclectic. Our team is diverse, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

For us, it’s not where you’ve been that matters but where you want to go. And when we first met Amanda Gilliam, we knew right away that she was ambitious, focused and driven to great things. That’s all that really mattered to us, and we hired her on the spot.

Amanda joined STS Technical Services this past week as its newest Program Assistant. She will be working directly with our crew in Oscoda, Michigan, and we are thrilled to have her on board.

For anyone who would like to get to know Amanda a little bit, check out the quick Q&A we did below.

Thanks, for taking the time, everyone.

Amanda, welcome to the team! We are so very grateful to have you.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I am a recent graduate from Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in social work. During my time in the social work field, I worked with Department of Health and Human Services in the Foster Care and Child Protective Services Department. I’m new to the aviation world and very excited to learn!

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

If I’m not working, some of the things I do for fun include going on a boat, playing Fortnite with my 7-year-old nephew, going on bike rides, or re-watching The Real Housewives of New York City for the 30th time.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

If I could be any superhero I would be The Toxic Avenger because he found a way to make falling into a barrel of toxic waste while turning into a scary monster a positive thing and a way to help others. I think we could all use a mindset like that (lol).

Welcoming Maggie Artnak to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Maggie Artnak

Not everyone takes a straight path in life, and that’s more than OK. In fact, those who embrace a zig-zag approach often turn out to be far more interesting than those who simply do what’s expected and never veer.

At STS Technical Services, we applaud uniqueness and embrace the journey of living; wherever the road may lead. For somehow, someway, we all end up where we should be, and we are so very glad that Maggie Artnak found her way to us.

For those whom have yet to meet Maggie, she is our newest Operations Specialists based out of Brookfield, Wisconsin. Maggie started working with STS Technical Services earlier this week, and we are very excited to have her on board.

If you would like to get to know Maggie a little bit, check out the quick Q&A we did below. And before you go, we’d just like to say thanks for taking the time. Maggie, welcome to the team!

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I went to the University of MN, Twin Cities and have a B.A. in Child Psychology. I lived briefly in California years ago to nanny for one of my nieces. I’ve worked in several fields such as medical, mental health, hospitality, and child care, in mostly administrative, training, and customer service roles. I lived in MN for many years after college and moved back to WI, where I’m from, in 2016 to be closer to family.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

Volleyball is my main hobby. I play in a few leagues currently. I played varsity and club all through high school, club for the University of MN through college, and played for Santa Monica College while I lived in CA. I also enjoy live music, costume/theme events, road trips back to MN, spending time with my family here and around the country, trying new restaurants and breweries, and making improvements on my house.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

This is a tough question but I would probably say Captain Marvel because she is nearly invincible, extremely powerful, and can fly.

Welcoming Brooke Rankin to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Brooke Rankin

We love welcoming new faces to the STS Technical Services’ family, and today our team has the distinct pleasure of welcoming Brooke Rankin, our newest Technical Recruiter.

Not only is Brooke a delightful person to work with, she’s a fantastic mother, a kind soul and an extremely hard worker.

In an effort to help you all get to know Brooke a little better, our marketing team asked her three questions, and her responses to each are below.

Thanks so much for taking the time, and welcome to the family, Brooke. We are really excited to have you!

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have an Associate’s degree in Human Resources Management and have completed a full-cycle recruiting internship. My past few years have been spent working in finance, and I’m happy that I made the transition to Recruiter.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I have a toddler so she takes up the bulk of my free time. We like to play in our backyard and go to the park. I enjoy traveling when I have the chance. In fact, I recently visited New York City and am looking forward to vacationing in Hawaii in November.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

I would be Dr. Strange because he protects the earth from mythical and magical creatures. Truthfully, I am not a huge superhero fan, but I do appreciate Marvel over DC Comics.

Welcoming Jason Fraise to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Jason Fraise

Here’s the thing. Our newest Technical Recruiter, Jason Fraise, is a great guy. He really is. He works hard, he’s easy to get along with, he’s a great father and he loves sports. What’s not to like, right? At least that’s what I thought until I had the chance to review his new hire Q&A (see below).

Question three was supposed to be a simple one. I asked him which superhero he would be if he could be any superhero? His answer… Tom Brady. Ugh. I just can’t today. Go Bills!

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have 15 years full-cycle recruiting experience. I studied at Bridgewater State University where I graduated with a degree in Finance.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

Play sports — Definitely soccer, but I also like basketball, golf, tennis, racquetball and flag football.  I’m too old for tackle football.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

TB12 — Tom Brady. Why? Because he’s the GOAT!

Welcoming Tina Malm to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Tina Malm

Have any of you ever seen a movie called “The Hustler?” How about its long-awaited sequel, “The Color of Money?” Both are fantastic films where Paul Newman plays a character by the name of “Fast” Eddie Felson; a pool shark who works his way from billiard room to billiard room ready to empty the pockets of anyone who dares challenge him.

And while both movies are amazing, the story of “Fast Eddie” pals in comparison to the real life story of Tina Malm, our newest Recruiter based out of Severn, Maryland.

You see, Tina is not only an amazing Recruiter, she’s also a professional pool player who is currently ranked Top 25 in the country! With that in mind, if you happen to bump into Tina at a work event, don’t ever challenge her to a game of pool unless you’re willing to lose… and lose big. Tina is shark on the tables, and it’s that same killer mentality that has helped her thrive in her new career with STS Technical Services.

Let’s take a minute to get to know Tina a little bit better, shall we? Check out our quick Q&A below.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I’ve been a Recruiter both on the agency side and the corporate side; most recently for a government contractor in the D.C. area. There, I was in charge of staffing agency relationships and hiring cleared individuals.

I graduated from Penn State with a degree in Organizational Leadership and a minor in Labor & Employment Relations. I also have my PHR (Professional of Human Resources) certification (the hardest final exam I’ve ever taken).

My favorite part of recruiting is extending the offer and really getting to know the candidates with whom I work.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I’ve been lucky to have traveled almost everywhere in the United States playing competitive, professional-level pool (I am currently ranked in the top 25 in the US). I love how the game challenges, delights and frustrates me, and yet it still teaches me so much.

I also love the smell of ocean air, dinner with friends, and movie/home time with my husband and daughter.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

With the ability to heal other people, eradicate plagues and bring people back from the dead, I would choose the Scarlet Witch. None of the negatives attributes she possesses, only the positives, of course! How amazing would it be to bring back Albert Einstein and hear his commentary and opinions about modern scientific progress? How funny would it be to hear George Carlin comment about the political and social occurrences of the last 5 years? Beyond that, being able to heal people and make a difference would be next-level amazing!

Welcoming Nala Diallo to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Nala Diallo

As the world slowly inches back to a semblance of normality, we at STS Technical Services find ourselves busier than we have been in quite a long time. We are so busy, in fact, that our team has grown a lot over the past few months.

Now in the pre-pandemic past, it would have been easy for us to get to know every new face around the office. Today, however, face-to-face interaction proves to be a touch more challenging with many of us still working remotely. This fact is why we created the “Meet the Team” series in the first place; to give our colleagues, clients, customers and friends the opportunity to get to know the new faces of STS Technical Services. To that end, it gives us great pleasure to introduce Nala Diallo, or newest Technical Recruiter in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Let’s get to know Nala a little bit better, shall we? Check out the quick Q:A below.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. This past year, I was a Human Resource Intern and grew to love recruiting!

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I’m a big fan of crafting when time allows. I love crocheting, jewelry making and my recent favorite is making candles.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

I would be Superwoman… for sure. I love what she stands form, and I love how she represents women and girls. She’s a strong, independent woman; the embodiment of feminine strength and I love that!

Welcoming Cindy Najera to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Cindy Najera

Being a single mother is hard work. Being a single mother of five while holding down a career… that’s next-level difficult. But somehow, someway, our newest teammate, Cindy Najera, makes it all look easy when we know that it’s anything but. To that end, Cindy is not only a supermom, she’s a super Recruiter with more than 10 years of experience, and we are so very excited to welcome her to the STS Technical Services’ family!

Cindy joined the team nearly one week ago as our newest Recruiter in Brookfield, Wisconsin. And in an effort to help you all get to know her a little better, our marketing team asked her three questions; her responses to which are provided below.

Thanks in advance for taking the time, and Cindy… welcome to the team!

Question 1: Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have been in recruiting since 2010.  I have worked on a variety of positions, such as clerical, light industrial, skilled trades and engineering roles.

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I have 5 kids, so my fun time is spent watching movies with them and singing loudly and dancing in the kitchen.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Oh! I am already a Super Mom! One of my many super powers is being a single mom that is always making sure my tiny humans eat, sleep and do their homework when they’re supposed to… all while working full time!
