We Are CSI

On October 6, 2019, The CSI Companies celebrates its 25th anniversary.

We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings in 1994 as Custom Staffing Inc. in Maitland, FL. We are so grateful for our team members, clients, candidates, and partners for helping us achieve this milestone. See how far we’ve come here.


We understand that a great culture breeds great people, and we are committed to creating an environment where our employees are happy, comfortable, and rewarded.

Our culture creates a trickle-down effect that helps to enhance our customer service, and ultimately our clients’ results. And, we also want to learn about our clients’ company culture so that we can find candidates who will fit their environment.


Get temporary coverage for single projects or hire experts for your long-term business strategy, or both!

Each one of The CSI Companies’ divisions can address your resource challenges with short or long-term contracts, contract-to-hire and direct hire options – giving you the power to hire what you need, when you need it.

Our company’s success is rooted in a commitment to finding the right people for our clients.

CSI Gives Back

What began as a sponsorship of community events has flourished into a full-fledged social responsibility initiative that spans fundraisers, volunteerism, board membership, and cherished partnerships with local and national philanthropic organizations. 

The CSI Companies extends its community contribution beyond providing candidates with job opportunities and connecting clients with top-tier talent. Through its local support commitment, CSI partners with organizations near and far to meaningfully impact the lives of those in need. CSI Gives Back is the Heart of The CSI Companies.
