In 1985 Mary Farr worked as a contract employee for a large national company. She developed a passion for the Staffing Industry and really saw the flexibility and opportunity it offered to employees and employers. At the time, she had 3 children under 5 and was looking for her next venture. She researched the Staffing Industry and identified an opportunity to partner with other companies to help them fulfill their employment needs.
As a temporary herself, she appreciated the opportunity to gain experience and find the right fit at a company. Her right fit ended up being the entrepreneurial route when she opened her business. She first opened as Temporary Assets in 1985 in, at the time, the small town of Rogers, MN. In 2000 the industry began to change, as did Temporary Assets; Mary’s business partner retired and she decided to change the name to Vision Staffing Solutions to meet the growing needs of her community beyond just temporary help.
Throughout the years Mary established a reputable, ethical, value driven, passionate company that served the northwest metro area and established long term relationships with top employers and superior candidates.
