“We’re eager to see what the community is creating,” said Lisa Nguyen, Account Manager for Digital & Creative Services at TEKsystems Digital. “Meeting the amazing talent in our city and understanding their work helps us better connect them with new and exciting opportunities that will help advance their career.”
Vancouver is home to a talented group of UX practitioners. To put Vancouver on the map as a leading design and technology hub, it’s important to connect local talent with companies doing exciting things to evolve the industry. The Awards have had a heavy focus on hiring for the last few years, which is why we’re thrilled to have TEKsystems Digital on board as our People’s Choice sponsor.
For Lisa Nguyen and her team, the Awards serve as a great way to give back and connect with the community. They are finding that more and more companies recognize the need for user centered design and are shifting their hiring needs to bring in design teams. TEKsystems Digital partners with these companies from boutique agencies to Fortune 500 companies to supply skilled design, development, functional, and marketing resources.
“Our staffing agency isn’t just about shoving people in the door and moving on,” explains Ellen Cleary, the Recruitment Manager for Digital and Creative Services. The culture and the approach at TEKsystems Digital are different. They pride themselves on building relationships with their network as their careers change and grow over the years.
Having heard about the Awards from hiring managers in the city, they’re eager to connect with designers and see what they’ve been working on. The Awards will also be a great opportunity for practitioners to meet the TEKsystems Digital team. “I hope that more designers will leverage our recruitment services to develop their skills and advance their career,” adds Ellen.
Bringing the local UX community together and celebrating a culture of collaboration is something that makes this event special. Most of all, the TEKsystems Digital team is looking forward to seeing the design community come together and share their work. “It’s always fulfilling to be a part of something that is enriching the community,” said Lisa.
