Elwood Staffing touts itself as "the better people, people." That's because its people know how to find the right people for the job. The private staffing firm recruits, screens, and places candidates primarily in light industrial labor and administrative office positions, both temporary and permanent. Its services include drug testing, payroll handling, managing groups of temporary employees on premises, and assisting human resources with telephone inquiries, interviews, background checks, and orientation sessions. It has about 40 branch offices, half of which are in Indiana; the rest are scattered throughout Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas.
