About On Assignment
On Assignment, Inc. (NYSE: ASGN), is a leading global provider of in-demand, skilled professionals in the growing technology, healthcare, and life sciences sectors, where quality people are the key to success. We provide short- and long-term placement of contract, contract-to-hire, and direct hire professionals.
With nearly three decades of experience, On Assignment focuses on positions that advance our clients’ competitive advantage while remaining the employer of choice for professionals at various stages in their career. Our success can be attributed to never losing sight of the people involved in the process of staffing. It is the simple, yet remarkably effective, difference in our People First Approach.
We believe that effective job placements require that our Staffing Consultants have significant knowledge of the industries they serve, allowing them to expertly assess the client’s needs and the professional’s qualifications. With three central operating segments that include several dedicated divisions, we understand the ins and outs of each industry and the specialties involved, and thus are able to create the best job match.
On Assignment was founded in 1985 and went public in 1992. The corporate headquarters are located in Calabasas, California, with a network of approximately 129 branch offices throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium and Spain. Additionally, physician placements are made in Australia and New Zealand.
