Find a Recruiter


SGA Talent has helped organizations meet their talent and intelligence needs for over 30 years, making us the nation’s longest standing research and recruitment firm. Our most junior research professional has been with the firm for over 20 years. We are strongly committed to our clients’ success, and we proactively seek opportunities to ensure it. Working with us doesn’t involve rigid and long-term contracts. Instead, we are a scalable resource that ramps up or cuts back support in response to our clients’ needs. As the team is based on-site and not remote, we all work together under one literal roof. And that extends to our policy of handling all projects ourselves and never outsourcing.
