Committed, Driven, Focused

C&S Business Services Inc., previously known as C&S Secretarial Services, was established in 1977 by Carolyn and Scott Thompson and was the first staffing service to introduce employment services in Jefferson City and the surrounding area.

In 1989, C&S was purchased by its current owner, Paula Benne and remained a local woman-owned business. At the time, C&S focused primarily on providing temporary clerical services. Since then, C&S has continued to grow (expanding its services, staff, and facility) and is a full-service provider of quality employment solutions in central Missouri. C&S was the first company to introduce and aggressively develop the staffing industry in the Mid-Missouri area. Services provided by C&S include temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct hire placements across multiple industries in multiple counties. 

c-and-s-business-services2017 marks the 40th anniversary for C&S Business Services. C&S is a member of the American Staffing Association, National Association of Personnel Services, Human Resources Association of Central Missouri, the Jefferson City Area and Callaway chambers of commerce, East and West Side business associations, and is certified by Women Owned Business Enterprises. The owner and C&S staffing specialists are all Certified Staffing Professionals. All certifications require continuing education courses in human resources and current employment law issues. Each Staffing Specialist has over 20 years of experience with C&S. They also offer in-house payroll management for temporary and permanent workforce, saving customers time and reducing administrative costs.

In addition, C&S has achieved numerous national and local awards, accreditations, and recognition within the community and staffing industry. C&S remains the leading supplier in the staffing industry due to continued commitment, service, and professionalism. 

C&S Business Services, Inc. goes beyond providing staffing support; they provide solutions to real staffing issues. C&S makes it a point to learn and understand their customers’ businesses and their employment needs and follows through with their commitments to each of them.

“Combined, the team of women at C&S Business Services has over 100 years of experience in the staffing industry, and together they are the lifeblood of the day-to-day business and our continued success,” says Stephanie Lehmen, recruiter and community relations coordinator. “Led by C&S President Paula Benne, each member of the team plays a critical role and shares in the duties and service C&S provides to our customers and employees, doing whatever it takes to complete the job in the best possible way. Everyone at C&S covers for each other, wearing as many hats as needed to serve our employees and customers. Customer service is not just a catchphrase at C&S — it is the primary focus for everyone at C&S.”

C&S continues to seek the best possible candidates to fill positions for their clients and are searching for qualified applicants in the clerical (customer service, office support) and labor (welders, assemblers) fields. Employment through C&S is an excellent way to gain valuable on-the-job experience and get an equally valuable foot in the door for those entering or re-entering the workforce.
