Employee Testimonials

“I was just recently hired by Nease and am already very pleased with the support I have received. Allyssa has been available to me every time I have reached out to her via phone call and has been immediately responsive with emails as well – very impressive! I have also felt very welcomed and appreciated as she has been checking in with me to see how things are going. I am happy to be working for this company!”

-A. Campbell

I was a candidate in the job market for almost 7 months when my daughter suggested I go to Nease Personnel. The staff was extremely professional and courteous, which was comforting to me during this stressful period of being without a job. Within a week or two, I was placed with an organization and was eventually hired permanent full-time with this company. I am forever grateful to Nease Personnel for the opportunity and the doors it opened for me. It was a pleasure working with Nease Personnel’s friendly staff! Thank you!

Our Year in Review

With the close of another year upon us, we wanted to take a moment to look back and say thank you to all of those who make what we do possible. The delicate balance of clients needing candidates, and candidates needing work, is the true key to success for our team here at Nease. There’s no us without you, and we’re as grateful as always to those of you who think of us first- no matter the need.


There’s no denying that this past year has had its fair share of mountain-tops and valleys. As we reflect, the biggest takeaways for us have been all in the name of growth. 2022 has pushed us past our comfort zones and encouraged us to embrace change and all that comes with it. Among these things has been our partnership with Haley Marketing, and the release of our new website!


In March we were finally able to share in a whole new way. Along with a fresh look, we’re proud to now offer not only a more user-friendly approach, but also one that allows you to take a more personal peek into who we are and how we operate. Though our changes haven’t been just on the outside…


2022 has also brought us the gift of an office remodel! And more new client inquiries than we’ve had in years! As we celebrate all we’ve accomplished, we’re also looking forward to leaving 2022 behind and are eager for what’s in store for 2023. We’re so thankful to have you all with us- here’s to an even better year ahead!

The Employment Situation in November

Per Valentina Romei of the Financial Times;

“Economists expect the US economy continued adding jobs in November despite rising interest rates and concerns of a looming recession.

Wall Street expects the number of people on US payrolls rose by 200,000 in November from the previous month, according to economists polled by Reuters. This would be the lowest job creation since December 2020 and down from the 261,000 jobs added in October. However, the robust employment gains would show strength in an already tight labour market that is in contrast with other sectors of the economy, such as the housing market or retail sales, which are struggling under the aggressive pace of interest rate increases, according to Sandra Horsfield, economist at Investec.

US job creation has come in stronger than expected for the last seven months, bolstering the case for the Federal Reserve’s decision to raise its policy rates by historically large 0.75 percentage points in the last four meetings as it battles with high inflation. “The Fed will be hoping for some loosening in labour market conditions in next week’s report to justify a smaller increment policy rate hike at its next meeting in December, as is widely expected,” said Horsfield.

Kevin Cummins, chief economist at NatWest said that many firms have signaled they may need to reassess their hiring needs, but “so far at least, there still appears to be enough of a backlog at other firms helping keep job growth strong heading into year end”. He, however, expects US job gains will slow in 2023 as the economy is likely to tip into a recession that he forecasts will last through the first half of next year. Valentina Romei”

Staffing Agency FAQs

Most people have heard of a temp agency, but do you know how they work? Aside from being completely free to all candidates, the benefits are resounding.

If you’ve had recent changes in employment and are worried your resume is at risk of showing an unavoidable gap, considering a temporary assignment may be the key.

In addition to opportunities that are strictly temporary, some positions may go permanent after you’ve working a required minimum of hours (560) or may start permanently by being chosen within a Direct Hire program. Direct Hire placements typically involve a skill set that is beyond the entry level realm. Whether you are looking for something for a year, a few months, or looking for a long-term career, staffing agencies are a great way to get your foot in the door with a new employer that interests you.

Other desirable aspects of temporary placements:

  • Faster than normal hiring process
  • Receiving competitive wages
  • Broadening your skillset and strengthening your resume
  • Opportunity to become familiar with the position, duties and employer before committing long-term
