A history of realizing the promise of people
Leaders in staffing and recruiting since 1982
What has made Atterro Human Capital Group successful in staffing and recruiting when there is so much competition in the field? People skills. Knowing our talent as individuals and matching them to the right job. Listening intently to employers and committing to the quick resolution of their workforce issues.
Answering customer needs
During the first ten years of our history, our Pro Staff brand built a base of loyal customers needing administrative and light industrial temporary staff. As our customers business grew, we grew with them by expanding our service offerings to include contingent workforce solutions (CWS). Then they told us they wanted more – more of the same responsive and personal service in more employment areas. We heard them and we grew: first, in creative, interactive and marketing, and then into the fields of engineering, information technology, and finance and accounting. In recent years, beyond expanding our brands, we extended our service offers to include on-site contingent workforce management and customized recruitment process outsourcing (RPO).
Being mindful of our mission- everyday
We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality service focused on improving the productivity and profitability of our customers. We are committed to being a great place for talented people to work.

Angela Brown – Sr. Talent Manager, Kansas City, KC
Since starting my journey with Pro Staff in 2007, I have had more growth in my career than I could have imagined. I have been able to grow each and every year, help in other departments, and partner with great companies. I was recently promoted and am looking forward to leading my team to success. I know it will be every bit as exciting and rewarding as the previous years!
Dana Bozich – Client Talent Manager, Plymouth, MN
When I joined Atterro CWS, I was looking for more engagement with the people that I was hiring and more exposure to employment law and HR values. My career with Atterro CWS has brought me just that. Not only do I feel that I work in a rewarding industry and company, but I also work with some of the best in their field.
Kathy Pesta – Managing Director, MN Outstate
Pro Staff has helped me grow both personally and professionally. I have been fortunate to be a part of an amazing organization that recognizes and rewards great performance and has a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
Nicole Anderke – Talent Manager, MN Outstate
There are several things that I love about my job. First, I’m busy and multi-tasking. I always look forward to the next day of work. Second, I love the culture. We work with talent from all walks of life and our team complements each other well. And who doesn’t like a Friday afternoon happy hour? Lastly, I love how everyone is a “do-er.” There is a sense of urgency with everything we do. I love my career – this position is so much more to me than just a “job.”
Sid Stephany – Sales Director, Kansas City, KC
I instantly fell in love with Pro Staff’s culture and the people during my extensive interview process. I am happy to say that the one thing that has never changed from that day to now is the PEOPLE and CULTURE of this company. I bleed the Pro Staff blue, and I highly recommend this amazing company.

Internships in both recruiting and sales are available nationwide, during a 12-week period from May through August. Atterro recruits new interns each spring and has hired many interns as full-time associates upon graduation.
My internship with Pro Staff was a great hands-on learning opportunity where I felt I was able to add value to the team. The small office meant that every person made a big impact. Although there was a steep learning curve at the beginning, I had support from every person in the office. This has given me confidence, knowing that learning and growing is a lifelong task.
My experience as an intern was a rewarding one. I was given countless opportunities to grow professionally and offered real-world experience in the field that I will pursue after college. I am now more knowledgeable about the industry and am better prepared for my career.
My internship experience helped me grow into my position with Pro Staff. Atterro builds relationship with colleges so that students are able to educate themselves on the many possibilities a staffing agency has to offer. It was a great experience to say the least and one I would highly recommend for college students and new graduates.
Atterro’s internship program was an exciting learning experience. I gained valuable communication and presentation skills that I’ll be able to apply throughout my career. I cannot believe how much I learned about the staffing and recruiting industry in just three short months. I could not have asked for a more fun, hard-working, and professional group of mentors.
I was able to do much more than simply answer phones or get coffee during my internship. I worked directly with clients on a daily basis. It is more than just something to write on my resume. I have been able to refer back to my experiences I had at Atterro and see the real-world applications.
As a result of my internship experience with Atterro, I have a greater understanding of the business world and I am far more confident and ready to succeed. I interacted with many different people within the company, greatly improving my ability to communicate effectively. I would highly recommend Atterro’s internship program.
My internship with Atterro greatly impacted my professional life. I learned how to effectively work with others and recruit quality candidates. I also gained insight into employee benefits and hiring practices. These skills will be useful to me now, as well as in the future.
Being a part of the Atterro team has greatly impacted my professional development. As an intern, I was encouraged to engage in challenging tasks, and always felt like my opinion was valued. I was given the tools and opportunities to expand my skills and grow into a more confident individual!
