Founded in 1999 by industry veterans Matt Ricksgers and Jerry Ainsworth, LGS Staffing is a strategic workforce solutions firm that connects hardworking people with leading employers. Starting with a single office serving the Atlanta community, we’ve greatly expanded our scope and reach over the years. Today, we provide comprehensive contingent workforce solutions, payroll services, disaster recovery support services, and Verndor Management (VMS) throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico

Our goal is to help job seekers build successful careers, while helping employers build healthier bottom lines. Whether you’re looking for a better job or better workforce solutions, you’ll find a great partner in LGS Staffing.

Let’s get to work.

Community Service

LGS has a long history of community involvement, both civically and philanthropically. We recognize that strong communities build brighter futures, and that exceptional companies are built on values as well as talent.

Our people are encouraged to get involved not only in industry associations and activities, but also in the communities in which we live and work. Often this involvement requires donating money or time. Sponsoring, coaching and volunteering are just a few examples of how LGS employees stay involved.

We approach our home and community commitments with the same “Get it Done” attitude that we bring to our business.

  • Atlanta Hunger Walk/Run – team entry
