Axios HR™ : Attract. Retain. Develop.


AXIOS HR is the 3rd largest privately-held employer in West Michigan delivering personalized employment solutions to small and mid-sized companies. Founded in 1988, as Staffing Inc., we seek to create strong, personal partnerships with our employees and customers. We believe that our commitment to the trust formed between businesses in West Michigan ultimately improves the local communities in which we live. AXIOS HR has flourished under this model and expanded into other value-added HR offerings.


Becoming part of the AXIOS HR team offers a unique opportunity for individuals up to the challenge. Built on shared core values of excellence, honesty, respect, open communication, empowerment, professional growth, and innovation, the unity of the AXIOS HR culture shines through in everything we undertake.

AXIOS HR team members are encouraged to continuously pursue personal growth opportunities and are allocated set hours to give back to community-related causes. Our Active AXIOS initiative supports participation in local fitness events and ensures that team members balance work responsibilities with personal health. Additionally, regular group outings and retreats foster collaboration and transparency.
