Cynet Systems Inc., a recognized diversity supplier with the Commonwealth of Virginia, offers staff augmentation services in the fields of IT, engineering, government, healthcare, banking, financial services and insurance. “We are fortunate to be part of a community that is welcoming small businesses,” says Ashwani Mayur, co-CEO of Cynet Systems. “There are opportunities galore around the nation, but being close to Washington, DC, is the best. Our contracts with various state clients and corporations on the East Coast are possible because of our proximity.” Another factor in Cynet Systems’ success has been diversification: Over the years, the company moved beyond just providing staffing to managing its clients’ entire recruitment process.

Quick Tip: “A great leader is a servant leader. A great leader is humble, authentic and genuine.”

One of the biggest challenges for Cynet Systems has been managing clients’ expectations. “Honestly, some of these expectations are unrealistic. But most often, staffing firms are afraid to say it due to fear of losing the contract,” says Mayur. “Cynet Systems differed, and our clients saw value in it.” For example, when the company thought it was unrealistic to find a candidate with the exact skills a client was looking for, it hired a candidate with an approximate skill set and helped the client provide training. Over the next five years, Cynet Systems is planning to expand its services into the digital, legal and corporate-education staffing space.
