About Us

Who We Are

We’re a family-owned staffing agency helping the Midwest’s leading employers proactively manage staffing to improve productivity, control costs, and manage employment risks.

Our Mission & Values

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.


The strength of our business is vested in people – and as such, we recognize and acknowledge the value and dedication of our employees and clients.


We remain committed to the best interests of our employees and clients. Our words and actions are guided by honesty and reliability.


Our quest for innovation extends far beyond our brand name. We continually challenge ourselves to develop creative and unique solutions that redefine the standards of our industry.


We seek input and feedback, listen with empathy, and respond with a sense of urgency. We anticipate needs and excel at developing solutions that exceed expectations.


We encourage and support one another. The success of our team rests in the belief that by pulling together we can achieve extraordinary results.
