Our company motto is to treat employees like “Gold” and treat them with dignity and respect, and constantly strive to provide clients with service levels that meet and exceed their expectations.

Personnel Plus was first started in 1990 when our founder, Tony Mayer, decided to leave the Fortune 500 corporate environment after serving as Vice President for two large companies with offices and factories throughout North America. Tony left the Fortune 500 environment to seek out other potential high-growth business opportunities that would allow him to relocate back to Idaho.

Mr. Mayer moved back to his hometown in Twin Falls, Idaho, and decided to rent a small business incubation cell from the local College of Southern Idaho. Mr. Mayer conducted a local market survey and determined that the need existed for this type of business. He then decided to take the next step and pioneered opening the first staffing service office in the Magic Valley area. He entered into a franchise agreement with an experienced national staffing company in 1991 and started doing business in Twin Falls, Idaho. In 1993 a second office was opened in Burley, and in 1994 the 3rd office opened in Boise. After the initial 5-year term, Mr. Mayer believed he could better serve the staffing needs of his clients as an independent rather than as a franchisee

Mr. Mayer negotiated a buy-out from his franchise agreement and incorporated it as Personnel Plus, Inc. in 1996. Since then, the company has continued its high growth trajectory, opening additional offices in Nampa and Fruitland, with other satellite offices located in Jerome and Pocatello. Since our inception in 1991, Personnel Plus has earned a solid reputation with our clients as a company they can count on for consistent and dependable results. Our Industry expertise has continued to expand, and our clients include hundreds of businesses and government agencies throughout the geographical area we serve.

In our years in the staffing business, we have learned that companies must continue to modernize their business platform with the ever-changing needs of new challenges and obstacles that face the modern employer. The worldwide pandemic is an example of how staffing services need to reassess.
