About Labor Ready


Our vision: To be the talent solution for the changing world of work
Headquartered in Tacoma, Wash., Labor Ready started in 1987 as a small operation, with a goal to ease the stress of fluctuating business needs by providing dependable temporary labor when help was needed. Demand grew for Labor Ready’s services, and in 1994, the company expanded to Canada.

Our mission: Connecting people and work
We take pride in quickly matching the right worker to the right job, with a focus on getting to know both our workers and our customers.

What really sets us apart is our ability to respond quickly – on demand – to our customers. We believe this commitment is the reason we currently dispatch approximately 350,000 workers annually to jobs in construction, manufacturing, hospitality, events, restoration, auto services, logistics and warehousing, retail support, waste and recycling, and more. And also why more than 130,000 companies choose Labor Ready when they need a dependable source of labor.
