BLOOMINGTON, IL October 1, 2020 – STL announced today that it has agreed to acquire Wendelin Consulting Group, Inc. The acquisition brings STL additional professional and technical consulting capabilities to complement and expand its existing Managed IT services throughout the Midwest.

What I like most about STL Staffing Services is the responsiveness to day to day requests. Their staff takes feedback from our team and adjusts as necessary.

We appreciate the relationship we have with STL and the open dialogue we have about future services, costs, etc.

I would approximate that 30-40% of our full-time production staffing hires come from STL after they are placed in our workforce. This reduces the amount of time and money we need to invest in recruitment and hiring costs. It also allows our hiring managers an opportunity to see the talent in action before committing to them long-term.
