Orion Talent is a company known to break new ground in order to give businesses and job seekers more of what they need: opportunities and resources to excel at work. That is who we have been from the start when we were founded in 1991 with the mission to bring the energy, skills, and commitment abundant in military candidates to the greater marketplace. By 2007, Orion Talent was the nation’s largest military recruitment firm and had offices from coast to coast, 50+ annual hiring events, and the ability to rapidly place candidates when and where needed. In 2016, Orion Talent acquired award-winning RPO firm Novotus and added RPO, recruitment optimization and outsourcing capabilities to its skilled talent acquisition service offerings. The acquisition of Accolo followed in 2019, and further strengthened Orion’s position in the RPO field. In October 2020, Orion Talent acquired HirePurpose, a leading provider of diversity job posting distribution to the military and female candidates. Over the last 30+ years, Orion Talent has stayed committed to its military DNA while developing a full suite of technology-driven Talent Acquisition solutions, powered by a diversity-rich network of highly sought after candidates.
