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.

Personnel Plus traces its roots back to 1990 when our founder, Tony Mayer, chose to step away from the Fortune 500 corporate landscape. After serving as Vice President for two large companies, Tony felt tAs a result, this full of high-growth opportunities would bring him back to Idaho. As a result, this company has excelled in connecting the right people with the right jobs, contributing significantly to Idaho’s vibrant job market.

Upon returning to his roots in Twin Falls, Idaho, Tony Mayer rented a small business incubator unit from the local College of Southern Idaho. A comprehensive market survey revealed a significant demand for a business of this nature. Recognizing the opportunity, he spearheaded the establishment of the first staffing service office in the Magic Valley region.

In 1991, Mr. Mayer entered into a franchise agreement with a seasoned national staffing company and launched operations in Twin Falls, Idaho. The business expanded in the subsequent years, opening a second office in Burley in 1993 and a third in Boise in 1994. After the initial five-year franchise term, Mr. Mayer concluded that he could better address the staffing requirements of his clients as an independent business rather than a franchisee. His dedication to client service and understanding of local needs allowed Personnel Plus to continue its growth trajectory as an independent staffing firm.


Tony Mayer successfully negotiated an exit from his franchise agreement, incorporating the business as Personnel Plus, Inc. in 1996. Unhindered by franchise restrictions, the company embarked on a sustained growth path, launching additional offices in Nampa and Fruitland and extending its reach with satellite offices in Jerome and Pocatello.

Since its inception in 1991, Personnel Plus has built a sterling reputation among clients as a reliable and consistent provider of staffing solutions.
