Robert Half Technology Achieves Three Gold And Seven Silver Microsoft Competencies
Earns Distinction and Market Leadership Through Demonstrated Technology Success and Customer Commitment

MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert Half Technology, a leading provider of information technology (IT) professionals on a project and full-time basis, today announced it has attained three gold and seven silver competencies through the Microsoft Partner Network. These achievements distinguish Robert Half Technology within the top one percent of Microsoft's partner ecosystem, and demonstrates a commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers' evolving needs.

To earn a Microsoft competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise and, for gold competencies, designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects and pass technology and/or sales assessments. For gold competencies, partners also must implement a yearly customer satisfaction study and, for many competencies, meet a revenue commitment.

Robert Half Technology's gold and silver competencies provide the company unparalleled credibility with their clients, prospects and candidates as subject matter experts. These distinctions illustrate dedication to focusing on in-demand, business solutions and the ability to provide the necessary staffing, project management or consulting solutions to support companies of all sizes in today's ever-changing technology environment.

"Achieving these Microsoft competencies underscores our commitment to providing skilled talent and expertise to today's high-tech market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft products and solutions," said John Reed, senior executive director of Robert Half Technology. "Our goal is to accelerate our clients' success through superior service and by having our staffing professionals serve not only as recruiters but also advisors."

"When customers look for an IT partner to meet their business challenges, choosing a company that has attained Microsoft competencies is a smart move. These are highly qualified professionals with access to Microsoft technical support and product teams," said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "These partners have a deep expertise and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology."

All 28 Microsoft competencies differentiate a partner's specific technology capabilities, helping customers find qualified solution providers with expertise in discrete areas quickly and easily.
