Phoenix is the latest expansion for Digital Intelligence Systems, ranked by Staffing Industry Analysts as the second-fastest-growing company in the staffing industry among companies with revenues exceeding $100 million. “Phoenix has always been on the radar screen for DISYS,” says Tim Kirby, managing director for the Phoenix office, which opened in February. Noting Phoenix is among the top 10 markets for IT job creation, Kirby says the Greater Phoenix area has a strong workforce pool — thanks to “great universities and technical schools” — as well as a lot of technical employers in a broad range of industries, including large employers in aerospace, financial services and healthcare.
With the IT unemployment rate at 1-2 percent, compared to 10 percent in Arizona’s overall economy, companies may need help with IT functions while seeking to find talent to hire. DISYS’s Phoenix office will provide IT services in enterprise resource planning, infrastructure support, and cloud deployment and management in addition to helping with staffing needs. An additional impetus for opening an office here at this time was to better service DISYS’s national and global accounts that have a physical presence in Phoenix.
