Wichita, KS – High Touch Technologies is launching a new business unit, High Touch Staffing. Originally started at the request of clients looking to source IT talent for their internal needs, High Touch has been assisting clients with tech talent for a number of years.
High Touch Staffing will specialize in the identification and placement of technology talent, though they are capable of placements in jobs and industries of any kind. Staffing services are the newest addition to High Touch’s portfolio of business offerings that includes software development, technology solutions/outsourced IT and website development/SEO.
“Recent research shows there’s an urgent need to connect qualified people with jobs in Wichita.” said CEO Wayne Chambers. “Everything that has come out of The Chung Report tells us developing and retaining talent is imperative for Wichita’s growth and sustainability. As a company founded and headquartered in Wichita, we are extremely interested in opportunities to help Wichita thrive. We’ve been doing technology-focused recruiting for our clients for a few years now. We pride ourselves on the employees we are able to attract at High Touch and want to bring that same success to our clients.”
Jennifer Hughes, High Touch Director of Human Resources and Talent Acquisition, and Kaydee Dutton, Staffing Specialist, will lead the new business unit. In addition to her work at High Touch, Hughes has spent over 13 years in Human Resources, including multiple years of dedicated recruiting experience. Dutton works to both identify candidates and assist in pre-screening.
Said Shelly Prichard of Wichita Community Foundation, “Hiring the right person for the job, with the personality that fits your company is crucial. With the help of Jennifer at High Touch, we identified the perfect person. She saved us immeasurable time on the front end of the process, and brought highly qualified, pre-screened candidates for our role and our company.”
High Touch is an entrepreneurial company; in that spirit, many former employees also maintain great relationships with High Touch after leaving to begin their own ventures.
