Our Values

Next Step Systems is a Chicago IL based IT recruiting firm specializing in job placement for IT Professionals nationally. We are an Information Technology recruiting service with technical recruiters. We believe in a thorough, ethical approach to IT recruitment. Too many firms are only interested in numbers, placing as many candidates as possible without paying enough attention to needs, skill sets and genuine career opportunities. This leads to a high turnover of staff and has a negative financial impact on businesses and individuals alike. Our main commitment is to ensure that we place the right people in the right roles, improving retention rates across the industry and ensuring that we develop long-lasting relationships that are built on trust and our unique attention to detail.

Next Step Systems has excelled for more than 25 years and has become the information technology recruiting firm of choice for many businesses in the United States. Our goal is to be a trusted consultant for all your IT staffing needs. We understand what it means for candidates when we find them a job which not only gives them a source of income but also dignity. We understand just as well what it means for businesses when we find the talent they need to thrive and grow.

Behaving with dignity has been a key characteristic since the establishment of Next Step Systems information technology recruiters more than 25 years ago. It continues to be central to our organizational culture and operations. One reason that customers and candidates continue to turn to Next Step Systems is our emphasis on business ethics, and we employ what we consider to be the best team in our industry.

Our industry and business has dramatically changed since Next Step Systems was founded in 1995, but our core values about quality of service and ethics have remained unchanged. Those core values are at the very heart of everything we do.

We want to work with professionals as they progress in their careers and work with companies as they expand their businesses. Any other than the most professional experiences will destroy the degree of trust that we work so hard to attain.

At Next Step Systems, ethics, honesty and trust are a given. We cannot function without those traits. Confidentiality is a prerequisite for hiring and training and we value that with everything we do. In every aspect of our organization, we exude professionalism.

We are not a high volume, quick turnover firm. We deal with full-time roles and real career paths, not temporary stop gaps. The candidates we place receive support and often find themselves in dynamic roles that offer progress up the career ladder. For the companies we represent, this is cost-effective, motivating and helps them present themselves in a positive light as employers, in an era when these kinds of values are, unfortunately, too often overlooked. In short, at Next Step Systems, we are passionate about people.
