Applewood residents Mary Klein and Maggie Sanders note that owning and operating a small business as a mother-and-daughter team has its ups-and-downs.
“But it’s beneficial in the long run,” Klein said, adding she enjoys watching her daughter do the job she used to do. “It’s fun to see that she’s picked up some things.”
Klein, 60, found Professional Staffing Solutions nearly two decades ago. She serves as its president. Sanders, 35, has been in her current role as its vice president for eight years, but has been involved with the company since its beginning.
Professional Staffing Solutions will celebrate its 20th anniversary this March. It is a full-service staffing company that provides its clients with personnel, helps its candidates with job placement and offers payroll services.
“Looking for a job can be daunting and discouraging,” Sanders said. “We provide guidance to people seeking their livelihood.”
Professional Staffing Solutions has about 200 clients — businesses/companies — in the Denver Metro area, and helps provide staffing to them for positions from entry-level to CEO. Klein and Sanders can help provide full-time or part-time workers, as well as temporary, temp-to-hire, contract and direct hire placements.
For candidates or job seekers, Professional Staffing Solutions can provide career coaching which includes resume writing or building, interview preparedness and helping people find an industry or profession that is right for them. There is no fee for candidates for using Professional Staffing Solutions’ services.
It is rewarding work, Sanders said. Klein agreed and added there have been times people shed tears of happiness after hearing they got the job.
“We really do care about our candidates,” Klein said. “We find good ones, and that’s our key to success.”
However, Klein said, some of that can also be attributed to it being a small and local business with a repertoire of success among its loyal clients.
“Getting to know the client, as well as the candidate, is huge,” Sanders said. “We want to make a good match with personality and skill set.”
Klein and Sanders also attention to other factors such as cost of living, wage and workplace atmosphere.
“We can recognize the needs in our community,” Sanders said, “and find the right fit for both the candidate and the client.”
