Our mission is to help everyone do the work that they love, every day.

Our Story

We started INNOVA with one thing in mind…help professionals and the companies they work for be the very best that they can be. We challenge the status quo, with our proprietary process, that ultimately helps you grow and get as much out of your professional career as possible. We want to take the “work” out of work!

Joel Slenning – Founder

So many tech businesses today struggle to create effective Talent Acquisition programs, that actually bring them the talent that they need in the time that they need it. 

Most internal recruitment programs are slow and very costly. That’s where we come in! We help you create effective Talent Acquisition programs while supplementing your Talent Acquisition needs. Working with us will set you up, not only to solve the current problem you have, but a future of Talent Acquisition success. 

INNOVA has the most sophisticated AI driven Tech Stack in the industry, mirrored with the human touch and interaction needed to create trust with the Talent you need in your business.


We approach each new challenge with our core values in mind:

  • Listen: We can’t help you properly without knowing what is most important to you, share it with us and we will do the rest.
  • Lead: INNOVA has over 20 years of experience in the staffing industry, we are always out ahead of our competition because we are brave enough to innovate and lead.
  • INNOVAte: Our technology is cutting edge and constantly being challenged by us to be better and better so we serve the people we interact with a competitive edge.
  • Solve: Our attitude is, if we don’t solve the problem for you the first time, then we haven’t lived up to our values. We listen, innovate and lead in order to help you solve!
  • Appreciate: We are in the people business, and people’s dreams and goals are what we hold most dear…so we appreciate at every turn and truly want you to be successful.

We take an innovative approach as a talent acquisition firm, utilizing an artificial intelligence platform and the latest HR technology to solve some of the most complex human resources problems companies face today.

We are data-driven and technology-focused, but never lose sight of the fact that it’s people who make us all a success.
