St. Louis, Missouri – AEG, a leading IT and engineering staffing and recruiting firm in the Midwest, is honored to announce its recognition as one of the SIA Best Staffing Firms to Work For in 2024.


This year, over 400 staffing firms vied for the title, participating in a comprehensive evaluation program designed to identify companies that excel in creating outstanding workplaces. The assessment was conducted via an online survey with internal employees at each firm responding to around 40 questions. The questions spanned six critical engagement categories: communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics, and trust in leadership.


SIA President Ursula Williams said, “2023 was a challenging year for companies adjusting to post-pandemic conditions, including a tight job market, inflationary pressures, the need for sales growth and the importance of operational efficiency. SIA’s Best Staffing Firms To Work For are shining examples of companies who prioritized and maximized their employee engagement as reported by their own employees. Congratulations to our 2024 honorees for fostering fantastic company cultures and keeping their employees excited to come to work each day.”


AEG’s achievement is a direct reflection of the positive feedback and high engagement scores provided by their dedicated team members. Their inclusion in this list underscores their commitment to fostering a work environment where communication flourishes, individual needs are addressed, managers empower their teams, personal engagement is nurtured, team dynamics are strengthened, and trust in leadership is paramount.


“We are thrilled to receive this recognition from SIA,” said Chris Rakel, Chief Operating Officer at AEG. “This award is a testament to the culture of excellence we’ve built at AEG. It’s our people who make AEG a great place to work, and we are deeply committed to ensuring their professional and personal growth within our organization. We believe that by supporting our employees in this way, we not only enhance their lives but also provide our clients with the highest level of service.”
