“When we first arrived here in the United States, we all had to learn our ABCs”, says Maiyoua, President of ABC Staffing. “Our staffing agency is a reminder that ordinary people with limited English skills can become educated and outstanding citizens within our communities. They just need to be given the opportunity to find stable employment and provide for their families. These workers may not end up being lawyers, doctors, and business owners; but their children may very well be. I look at my own journey from a refugee camp in Thailand to being a business owner and entrepreneur in the city of Appleton. My hope is to give someone the same opportunity my family was given.”
We are careful who we place with our clients. While there is no test for “human nature”; we have found that our processes allow us to place qualified, ready to hire staffing associates who are ready to work. We bridge cultural employment gaps by ensuring your requirements are received across language barriers.
