What makes a company great?
It’s a question our founders asked over 70  years ago when Innova began as a small technical writing business. In its earliest days, Innova played a key role in American innovation, including providing technical documentation for the Atlas Missile Project. As the company grew, we saw an opportunity to fill a critical need for our clients by providing contract personnel services and this part of the business quickly developed into the core of Innova's service offerings.

The world has changed so much since our company began in 1950, and these changes have driven opportunity at Innova: We’ve established a global footprint as one of the industry’s top staffing and talent management providers.

Innova's expansion continued with the acquisition of a well-established UK recruitment business (Gatton) in 1998, subsequently adding offices across Europe.  In 2000, Innova Consulting Group had our first international Master Services Program (MSP) roll out, establishing ourselves as the leading player in the newly created solution space. Over the years, relationships have been built with some of the most innovative and best known companies in the world.  Headquarters in Bangalore India, Arctern was acquired in 2007 to offer BPO and outsourcing solutions. 

While our awards, history of success , and long-standing client relationships demonstrate the value of these services , the key to our success is our continual focus on our clients and employees. We look forward to ongoing strategic innovation while respecting the roots of our company because we still believe what our two founders, brothers William and Jerry Shaw, realised long ago:

Business runs on talent, today and always.
