Our Corporate Office

Almost four decades ago, Frieda Doolen created an Employment Agency with the idea of helping people find careers and companies find the right people. As the employment climate changed so did the industry, from a permanent placement agency to a temporary agency. We were called First Temporaries until the winds of change blew again and our clients needed more options. This prompted us to offer total Human Resource Services, from employment to counseling, and to reflect this change we became WORKCO Staffing Service.

In 1984 Frieda's daughter Christine Russell joined her and became a full partner by 1989. To better service our clients Christine Russell achieved her Human Resource designation in 1995 and has maintained it year after year. Our dedication to our community is exemplified by donating our time through a lecture series to high school and college students on becoming more hireable. WORKCO serves clients and recruits from a six county area. Through all the years the one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing a comprehensive employment service for East Texas.

One of the things that has kept WORKCO Staffing Services thriving for almost 40 years is the hard work and dedication to staying current with all employment issues to help protect our clients. WORKCO has succeeded by showing our customers and our community we care about their day-to-day operations and their success. Of course, WORKCO owes most of it's success to its incredibly talented staff that makes WORKCO what it is today...the Employment Leader of East Texas!

Our staff is ready to help you get what you need. Give us a call.
