About Rita Staffing

The year was 1973. Richard Nixon was president. The Vietnam war ended. Miami won the Super Bowl. And The Godfather won the academy award for best picture. 

1973 was also the year that Jim and Marty Dayvault organized and established Rita Staffing in Lakeland, a full-service recruitment and placement firm. 

40 Years of Success…and Counting

Over the years, we have grown to become one of Central Florida’s largest and most successful staffing firms. Each year we provide staffing support to hundreds of employers and help thousands of people find rewarding careers. 

Our mission is to assist employers in meeting the challenges faced by virtually every business in America which is matching workforce to workload. 

Today, Rita Staffing has offices in South and North Lakeland, Winter Haven, Plant City, Tampa, and Sebring. To provide specialized support for our clients, Rita Staffing also owns and operates two other staffing companies which are:
