Staffing at a Higher Standard

Stafforce Team

Our company was founded in 1998, by a General Contractor, who was fed up with the poor quality of help he would receive from typical “day-labor” companies. He envisioned a temporary staffing company that employed mature, responsible, career minded employees and he thought the best way to accomplish that goal was to treat those employees like regular, full time workers. Like most of America’s workforce, every Stafforce employee is paid weekly, they are provided with benefits, and they are required to provide their own transportation to and from the job. Our core staff has over 50 years of combined experience, in temporary staffing, and we utilize that expertise to evaluate every employee and hire only the best. We maintain a high quality work force by mandating strict performance standards and not giving second chances to those employees who fall short of those standards. Every temporary staffing company has its strengths and ours is employing the best workforce in Jacksonville.
