About BirdDogHR

Built to Work for You

BirdDogHR is on a mission to help organizations most effectively organize and manage their greatest asset — their people. With a focus on federal contractors, construction, engineering and supply, we’ve provided software and services to help companies with their specialized people needs since 1997.

The BirdDogHR Story

BirdDogHR™ was founded in 1997 as Industry People Group (IPG) and launched its first online job board, MEPjobs.com, the same year. IPG was the first organization specifically designed to serve the MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) industry. We changed our name to BirdDog in 2010 to more accurately reflect our focus on Applicant Tracking System (ATS) software and recruitment services. In 2015, we added Onboarding, Performance Management, Learning Management and Succession software to our product offering. We also have a strong managed services offering to complement the integrated talent management solution. The company now operates as BirdDogHR.

Today, we are led by a team of proven human capital management leaders. Our staff is agile, dedicated and focused on the business of streamlining processes for HR departments in specialized industries. BirdDogHR provides technology solutions to all industries and has revolutionized the way construction, contractors and engineering firms manage their HR processes. Through technology and managed services we provide solutions that allow our clients to improve candidate quality and flow, shorten time to hire, centralize learning and increase employee productivity and readiness to take on more responsibility.

What’s New with BirdDogHR?

In 2018, BirdDogHR received investment from Providence Strategic Growth (PSG) after a period of continued hyper-growth. In conjunction with a new investment partner, BirdDogHR gained a sister company, ExakTime, a time and attendance software and service provider. Together, BirdDogHR and ExakTime are the cornerstone companies for Arcoro, the proven human capital management software and services provider for high consequence industries.

BirdDogHR is Your Best Choice for 3 Reasons

Specialized Expertise

BirdDogHR cut its teeth delivering niche job board solutions to the skilled trades as the Industry People Group family of sites: MEPjobs.com, BirdDogEngineeringJobs.com and AGCIAjobs.com. These sites still exist but now that we’re all grown up (98 in dog years), we recognize that changing technology, job seeker behavior, labor supply, and economic turmoil demand a more comprehensive technology solution to help your organization manage each function of talent management. BirdDogHR specializes in serving high-consequence and government contracting industries because they have different needs. Companies from other industries can use our solution — and they do — but we’ve built it with our core industries in mind.

Everything You Need

Focused exclusively on talent management, the BirdDogHR talent management solution helps you attract, engage and empower your team to compete and be the very best. BirdDogHR offers recruitment and applicant tracking, onboarding, performance management, learning management and succession planning software and accompanying services. All of these features are available in one easy-to-use full-featured system and configurable based on your priorities.

Easy to Start & Maintain

Speed is a core competency of BirdDogHR. With a streamlined implementation process, you can be up and running in weeks — not months. After your organization has implemented the software we take care of maintaining and updating it with system enhancements. Worried about changing OFCCP requirements? We’ll take care of it and lead you through any changes that need to occur on your side.
