TechBirmingham thrives through its immensely talented and diverse group of member companies. Meet our Member Companies is an ongoing Q&A series highlighting this group of movers, shakers and makers in Bham’s tech industry.
Meet Diann Hayes, Account Manager at 3Ci, formerly CCCi. Hayes is a Birmingham native and has been with 3Ci since 1978. Read on to get to know more about 3Ci and the great things they are doing in Birmingham and beyond.
Hi Diann! Let’s get started — Tell us more about 3Ci.
3Ci is one of the industry’s most established and reputable staffing firms. Founded in 1978, 3Ci (formerly CCCi) has been innovating to deliver staffing solutions for the IT industry for nearly 40 years. 3Ci is committed to addressing the talent needs of small, medium and enterprise-level companies in markets across the country. The company is headquartered in Atlanta with regional offices in Dallas, Birmingham and Charlotte.
What do you think is the biggest misconception about your field?
The biggest misconception about the IT staffing industry may be that it is all about business and not personal. At 3Ci, our primary focus is the relationships we have with our clients and consultants. We strive to find the right fit for our consultants so that they belong to a team, work with a purpose, and know that we care about them as people. When those things come together, work is fun and rewarding.
What exciting news or product/service announcements does your company have on the horizon?
3Ci recently launched an engineering staffing practice, and will soon launch a new patriot hiring initiative that will focus on placing veterans of the U.S. military in jobs consistent with their training, while helping them transition to civilian life.
How do you feel about Bham’s tech scene?
I am excited about the IT scene in Birmingham! There is an ever increasing number of technology-related ventures in our city, and the IT community does a great job of coming together to share ideas and help others through professional organizations and associations.
Thanks so much for sharing, Diann!
