Home Our History


Born of success;
breaking new ground.

ALPHA is an offshoot of DIVERSANT, a highly-successful Black-owned IT staffing firm co-founded by Gene Waddy. Through these roots, we have decades of experience recruiting top talent, and implementing and managing workforce and supply chain solutions for midmarket and Fortune 100 clients across the U.S. and beyond.

We believe that diversity, in all its forms, makes businesses stronger and more competitive. Our CEO Gene Waddy started ALPHA to create a different approach to staffing, payrolling, and employer of record services; one that combines professional solutions and diversity in a natural and authentic way.
