May 2009 Staffing Industry Analysts Report Places Company at 44th

Nelson, the leading independent San Francisco Bay Area staffing firm, has jumped from the 64th largest staffing company in the United States to the 44th largest, according to a recent Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) report. The "Largest Staffing Firms in the U.S." list is published annually and includes only companies whose annual U.S. staffing revenue exceeds $1 million. Nelson's new position marks a gain of twenty places since last year. The company had held the 64th position since 2005.

"We are thrilled that in the midst of a very challenging economy, Nelson has achieved this ranking increase," says Chairman and CEO Gary Nelson, who opened his first office in the Bay Area in 1970. "Our new position is a strong indicator of both the company's foundation and its future. It is rewarding to see that solid teamwork and prudent planning continue to generate meaningful results."

Nelson's range of offerings includes traditional staffing, specialty recruiting and compliance and payroll services. Over the past four decades, it has helped connect tens of thousands of qualified candidates with rewarding careers, while helping thousands of client companies fill their job openings.

"The increase of 20 places in our national ranking is no small feat. Our 40 years of experience in the staffing industry is clearly helping us succeed in a down economy, as is our attention to long-term client relationships," states Mr. Nelson. "Another major factor is the reduction in competition that inevitably occurs during tough times. We've maintained our steady growth by applying business practices that keep a sharp focus on the present and by constantly re-evaluating the future economic landscape."

Nelson now recognizes annual revenue of over $300 million and has 30 offices across seven business divisions.
