We ask our candidates and consultants to represent themselves as we would. Be exceptionally professional, work hard, and perform above and beyond expectations. Our goal is to add value every day and maintain an attitude that “good is not good enough.”

Core Values


  • Deliver people with fresh perspectives and seasoned experience.
  • Develop solutions that link business requirements with proven technology.
  • Delight partner relationships by remembering “good is not good enough”.

All while operating under our core values of Honesty, Integrity and Quality.

To be the partner of choice for professional staffing and IT client services.



After years of steady growth and profitability, we’ve taken on a charter of calculated growth along the Eastern Seaboard through the addition of new partners and new clients. We intend to accomplish this both organically and through specific strategic acquisitions.

Our charter for the next 5 years is to add new offices on the East Coast between Florida and Massachusetts and elsewhere nationally where relationships and opportunity dictate. This strategy will allow us to expand our services for some of our national clients and develop new client relationships as well.

Our focus will remain on professional staffing to include permanent, contract and contract to hire placements while leveraging historical experience to build and provide technology solutions as well as project based delivery.

Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things.
Peter F. Drucker

"The resources provided by Business Technology Group actually fit the needs perfectly and even gave us more than we expected. We even had extra time to work on critical areas. Automated deployment scripting is very time intensive and we had an additional 8 hours to focus on VMware specifically, which also is now documented for rapid deployment of ESX servers. Business Technology Group did an outstanding job in deveolping a solution. We gave them a very short project window and they provided us with a first class consultant and timely execution."
