About / History

Connecting great companies with
skilled talent for 30 years

Our Company

Hollister is much more than a staffing agency. We are partners, volunteers, mentors and leaders. Our team is energized and driven to create successful, ever-stronger relationships with business, non-profit, and government communities and the people who seek to work with them. Repeatedly recognized as a “Best Place to Work,” a “Top 100 Women-Led Business,” and one of Boston’s leading placement firms, we hope our record speaks for itself.

History

In 1988, Kip Hollister decided that there was a better way to connect the dynamic businesses of our region to the great talent she knew was available in Boston. A way to maximize the potential of staffing through the very basis of what she knew to be true – that connecting businesses with the best people for their companies was about building relationships. She launched Hollister Staffing in response to this vision, developing and evolving the business to be one of the leading staffing firms in the region. Today, Hollister’s range of work has grown as the business environment itself has grown – expanding to include vibrant Technology, Accounting & Finance, Administrative & HR professional service areas.
