AnDek Staffing Services was founded by Mindy Decker and Karen Danielson. Mindy and Karen worked together in the staffing industry for 20 years. Their experience and relationship began when they worked for a local regional staffing service. While working there, they gained invaluable experience and in 2007 took those skills and opened their own business, AnDek Staffing Services, Inc. Together their goal is to do something significant in the lives of others. This business was their calling and they have seen God at work in their business and their lives.
