The Local Experts
Nelson’s reputation is established as the local staffing and human resources expert. With more than three decades of experience we are the largest independent staffing company in Northern California.
Our experience and reputation was built on consistent service delivery and understanding of the local business climate.
A Strong Reputation Among Candidates
In Nelson’s annual survey of temporary employees, more than 90 percent of respondents said Nelson had more opportunities and better service than other staffing companies.
More than half our candidates are identified through referrals from satisfied clients and employees. This is a testament that Nelson is seen as the place to work.
Nelson is consistently ranked the #1 independent staffing service in Northern California according to publications such as the San Francisco Business Times, San Jose Business Journal, Marin/Sonoma Business Journal and Napa/Solano Business Journal.
We believe client satisfaction accounts for this ranking and illustrates our commitment to go beyond merely meeting to exceeding our clients’ expectations.
