Service Staffing Services
Karen Rehn, President & CEO
With 13 years of staffing experience, Karen is no stranger to the industry. Her zest for business and desire to leave Wisconsin winters behind led her to purchase Helping Hands Staffing Services. Karen purchased Helping Hands in March of 2009 from the original owner who founded the company in 1988.
The business has evolved and is now known as HH Staffing. With a solid foundation and an experienced management team the company has expanded to multiple locations. Future plans include continued service to valued clients, embracing new prospects and looking for new areas of business in Florida.
One of the greatest rewards of working in the staffing industry is the ability to make a real difference in the lives of others, I truly believe that our industry has an obligation to actively contribute to enhancing our communities and improving the lives of our employees. We make a difference one job at a time.
Karen’s mission is to continue to provide the same great workforce solutions, dedication and devotion that built the company.
