By Heather Moyer on February 26th, 2019

Our excellence in recruiting and consulting for highly skilled positions in ET and ICT was recently recognized by the San Diego Business Journal (SDBJ), earning HNM Systems coveted rankings in their 2019 Book of Lists in three areas. According to SDBJ’s site, “[the] lists provide the most up-to-date information and data points across more than 50 industries… [It] is an exclusive compilation of more than 90 lists containing data and contacts for San Diego County businesses.”

We are proud to announce our placement in the following rankings, based on a variety of metrics such as revenue and number of certified positions as well as third-party research on IT recruiters, in this year’s Book of Lists:

  • #9 in Permanent Placement Services
  • #13 in Temporary Placement Services
  • #13 in Telecom Companies


Relentlessly People Driven

We consider this a gratifying confirmation of our core values to be “relentlessly people driven,” for example. CEO Heather Moyer says the most important part of her work is being people-oriented and building relationships. This is representative in the way that Heather and HNM as a business puts our employees and customer needs above all.

Another one of HNM Systems’ core values as a technology staffing company is to “Be Home Base” and this perspective shows in our unique approach in this niche industry. “Having a ‘home base’ for your career lets you consider a variety of paths in the rapidly expanding field of telecommunications but with fewer stop-and-start dates on your resume.”

Unlike traditional recruiting and staffing agencies, HNM System’s approach enables us to select and keep the brightest talent while also investing in them long-term. This relationship is mutually beneficial as it creates a sense of responsibility on the part of the company and cultivates trust in the employees. This mindset is what helped us get recognized by SDBJ’s Book of Lists.

Equally important, there is a heightened level of trust from companies that rely on HNM Systems to fill their needs as well. More meaningful relationships with our recruits mean that HNM Systems is better equipped to find the right talent to fill our clients’ needs to help them reach their own success.

The Need Is Only Expected to Grow

There are no signs of slowing down in tech industries, and as innovations are deployed faster and faster and consumers demand more and more network services, experience and expertise will separate the wheat from the chaff.

“As we enter 2019, innovation and agility have become essential competitive ingredients for any organization, regardless of industry. According to Paul Sallomi, global technology, media, and telecommunications industry leader and US and global technology sector leader, companies need to take even greater advantage of cloud platforms that make powerful artificial intelligence (AI) tools and services available to broad ranges of users.”

This high prioritization of agility means two things:

  1. Change is a natural part of the industry and businesses will continue to need help in being able to adapt its workforce to fluctuating needs. “
  2. Staff, whether temporary or permanent, who are flexible and adaptable is key to success, making recruitment of the right talent about more than hard skills. “Securing a change-ready team is a critical first step for remaining agile,” says Mark Blunden of

A Trusted Partner Is Invaluable

Sites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, and even Google capitalized on the insecurity consumers feel about making uninformed, unvetted decisions. Trusted intel on where your money is going to be spent is critical to confidence in moving forward, whether “forward” means a new restaurant or staffing a temporary telecom job. In either case, a trusted partner to help you make an informed decision with confidence is simply priceless.

HNM Systems’ recognition for the Book of Lists by the SDBJ provides further evidence that our focused efforts to earn trust and expertise while doing the hard work of developing relationships of integrity are working.
