Your employment experts for over 50 years

Matthews Professional Employment, Inc. began as a Lake County independent staffing service in 1969. We grew to become a premier agency in Lake, McHenry, Cook, Kenosha, Walworth and Racine Counties, and nationwide. Our success can be attributed to our emphasis on building and maintaining strong long-term relationships with our clients and applicants, and focusing on their needs.

As the longest-running, privately-owned provider in the area, we know the local job market better than any other staffing service. We have thrived through economic ups and downs. As members of a privately-owned company, our professional staff has a vested interest in our success and yours. That’s why customer satisfaction has always been our top priority.
