We live our mission every day, in everything we do.

Our mission is simple: We will be the leading, innovative provider of outsourcing employment solutions in the Midwest through clerical, production and professional services. But these aren’t just words on paper for us.

Our mission drives us to take a shift at a local production company so that we understand better what kind of candidate our client is seeking.

Our mission drives us to come in to the office well before 8 a.m. so that we can talk with a client before their day gets busy.

Our mission drives us to not only achieve our recruiting goals, but blow them out of the water.

Our mission gives us the relentless spirit we need to make phone call after phone call to find the perfect candidate for a job.

Our mission is who we are. And who we will be in the future.

Yes, our mission is words on paper. But it’s much more than that to us.

Our goal is to become a proactive partner with our customers, integrating our capabilities to enhance their business processes and providing The Total Experience in quality and responsiveness. We will provide a challenging, rewarding work atmosphere for all employees and treat associates fairly, honestly and with respect.

From temporary workers to a direct hire CEO, we offer services to meet your needs. We have placed thousands of workers across Nebraska, proudly serving the communities of Grand Island, Hastings, Kearney, Columbus and Omaha.


This is who we are.

After working numerous years in the corporate world, Brian McMahon felt that the reward for his efforts would be greater if he owned his own business.

He wanted the flexibility that comes with being a business owner.

He wanted the American Dream.

After looking at several businesses over three years, Brian purchased Associated Staffing.

That was in 1995.

Our first office was in a house on College Street in Grand Island. We soon expanded to Hastings in 1998, operating out of bright orange office above a pharmacy. From there, our Professional Division was added, along with branch locations in Kearney, Columbus and Omaha. 


We don't like to toot our own horn. But thought
you'd like to know we've received an award or two.
