Your Silicon Slopes Talent Team
Meet your new talent partner and Director of our Silicon Slopes market, Sean McKeehan. He joins the ProFocus team with an extensive background of recruiting within the Utah market. Bringing over 15 years of leadership in talent acquisition, both from tech staffing agencies and in-house talent acquisition teams. Sean’s experience in building world-class recruiting teams and developing the careers of those teammates is an incredible asset to our Utah branch and ProFocus as a whole.
Sean uses his free time to organize the Silicon Slopes Talent Acquisition & Recruiting Summit. This Utah-based group of corporate recruiters and HR professionals meet up to discuss best practices and market trends. This provides an excellent opportunity to learn from one another and improve their business.
Explosive Tech Growth in Utah
Here’s a look inside the growth Utah is experiencing in terms of talent and business. The Silicon Slopes have produced more tech degrees per capita than San Francisco, Denver, or Boston at a rate of 5,300 tech degree graduates a year. As a result, the total tech talent has grown 42.7% over the past 5 years. These students are graduating from in-town schools like Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University, and immediately looking for their next career move. Luckily, as of April 2021, there were close to 8,200 tech businesses in the state which makes up about 11.5% of the economy. All that remains is matching the right person to the right job, which is where ProFocus can make a difference.
About ProFocus Technology
Our Silicon Slopes talent team looks forward to bringing the same high-quality and personal approach that we’re known for (and has earned us a fill ratio nearly double the industry average) to the broader Utah market. Quoting one of our clients, Jeff Welcome from Columbia Sportswear, “Working with the ProFocus team has been great. They are knowledgeable and have been very flexible in finding talent (often quick turnarounds). They are my go-to staffing company.” Here’s to new beginnings and many new relationships!
