What makes ISS different?


Innovation. Flexibility. Strategy.

Since 1994 we have provided creative solutions to our clients at locations throughout the Midwest.

We deliver the resources you expect from a large national firm – state-of-the-art training, technology and reporting – with the personal attention of a local, family-owned business. Strategic staffing and customizable on-site management programs adaptable to any client’s unique needs.

Once a licensee of a national staffing firm, ISS launched our independent agency in 2002. Today, we employ more than 80 full-time individuals and place up to 7,000 temporary workers each year.

We operate from branch offices in Effingham, Springfield, Decatur, Peru, Nashville, Mattoon, IL, and Evansville, IN. In addition, we are on-site at 15 different locations throughout Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri. Our corporate office is located in Mattoon, IL.

Our Mission

At Innovative Staff Solutions, our mission is to build successful partnerships with each of our clients – getting to know their businesses inside and out so that we may effectively fulfill their staffing needs. Through these mutually beneficial relationships, we are then able to open the doors of opportunity for our candidates.
