About Us

People Staff, Inc. was founded in 1997 to allow companies to focus on more strategic business needs by providing them with permanent or contract professionals when they need it. The company has provided thousands of permanent and contract employees to both large and small companies.

Community Involvement
People Staff, Inc. has several initiatives that are focused on the community; provide affordable marketing for small businesses; recognize small business leaders; and provide community events that allow small businesses to generate revenue; allow organizations to promote their services, increase their donor base and obtain donations; and provide affordable and free events to the community.

Our efforts go back as far as 2014 when we brought the rights to the Color Purple Musical. This event was directed by minorities and the actors were minorities with years of community acting experience. There were two shows – both sold out. For more information visit our website:

Later we hosted Annual All White Affairs. These annual events recognize two business leaders who give back to the community. It is well attended and encourages all to get more involved in the community. Visit our website to see past events:

There have been other initiatives that we organized and or implemented that were focused primarily on the youth of the community. Our most recent initiative/event is our Walk Run Pedal Jamz Festival®. The Walk Run Pedal Jamz Festival® is a registered trademark event. We have 2 successful festivals under our belts. The Walk Run Pedal Jamz Festival® contains a leisurely walk, run and bike ride. It includes fun activities for children, food trucks, vendor tents and a live concert. All which are free to the public.

The 2022 Walk Run Pedal Jamz Festival® was April 30, 2022 and was in collaboration with the Tennessee Aquarium 30th Anniversary and the Chattanooga River Market. The festival was on Ross’s Landing on the Riverfront in Chattanooga, TN. The festival drew approximately 15,000 people and was FREE to the public.
