All in a Day’s Work

APR makes your workforce as agile and responsive as you need it to be. No matter your industry, we build talent solutions that flex with your productivity needs and fulfill each of your business—or career—goals. We spend half our waking hours at work. Why not be really good at it? We’re a recruiting and contingent workforce solutions firm with more than 40 years’ experience. APR goes beyond cultural “fit” when finding your next job or placing talent. We take a full dose of understanding your needs and only match where a talent placement can be a cultural “add” (think game-changer) to a company. At the heart of everything we do is caring. It drives us to understand business goals; it helps us identify the right people for the right jobs at the right companies. It’s the reason we take the time to build each of our solutions about what an individual company needs. WeCare so much about how our contractors do—for themselves and the companies where we mindfully place them—that we’ve dedicated our WeCare Program to their success.

Our Backstory

1970
January 1

1970s: Before APR, there was Linda Stone.

Being an independent IT contractor was a novel thing in the 1970s. But it was the role that gave APR Founder and CEO Linda Stone a novel idea. There was a growing need not only for contractors, but for the right people paired with the right jobs in the right companies. So, she started a business. Aerospace and utility companies were Linda’s first clients.
1980

1980s: APR is born.

To put it plainly, Linda Stone was great at IT staffing. Her client list grew, and she expanded beyond just IT offerings. In 1980, APR Consulting was incorporated. Our first office opened in Tustin, CA, in 1987. Candidates submitted resumes on paper. Typewriters, white-out and fax machines were all the rage.

1990s: APR expands into more markets, more industries.

APR was the top staffing provider for aerospace and tech companies in Southern California by the 1990s. We pushed our boundaries a little further, expanding service to multiple states and placing talented people in finance, energy, utilities and manufacturing. That’s about when we opened our Diamond Bar, CA, office, which became our corporate headquarters.
2000

2000s: Recession hits hard, APR keeps going strong.

Despite the recession, APR continued guiding candidates through a difficult job market and helping businesses understand how best to staff. We didn’t miss a beat. In fact, we expanded our boundaries again—working with early adopters of MSP/VMS contingent workforce management programs.
2010

2010s: WeCare, always will.

Almost 40 years later, APR serves 40 states, 20+ industries and countless MSP/VMS contingent workforce programs—organic growth that happened because we’ve always taken the care to pair the right people with the right jobs in the right companies. In 2016, we made things official. Our WeCare Program is a dedicated platform for increasing engagement with our contractors and employees, and delivering resources to help them succeed.
