“My company used Nelson Connects for staffing services. We were transitioning the business from 1099 contractors to W-2 employees over a 12-month period. I honestly didn’t know how many of the employment laws and regulations worked and needed a solution. The Nelson Connects team made it easy! They educated me, set all the employees up and created a simply way to track time for payment. My team loved the simplicity and mostly the direct deposit connection versus the paper checks we had used. I recommend Debi and her team at Nelson Connects if you want staffing solutions that work.”

Everyone at Nelson Connects is personable, responsive and I can tell how much they care about finding the right fit for me at any of my future jobs. Debi specifically has been incredible to work with since day one. She checks in, makes sure I am receiving the support I need and is always willing to go above and beyond. I’ve known Debi for years and will continue to come to her any time I am looking for a new job opportunity and will continue to refer all my friends and family to her! You are in the best hands when working with Debi and Nelson Connects.”
