Barry Personnel Resources is an independently operated boutique staffing firm under the leadership of founder Peg Barry since 1985.

Peg is no figurehead president … she may even answer the phone.  She is quick, intelligent – very experienced – and utilizes her unique ability to assess a company’s challenges and match the absolutely best staff for their specific needs.

Barry Personnel is not a faceless nationwide company but a boutique staffing service whose people have an indepth knowledge of the city and how Chicago people work.

Peg is a Chicagoan and grew up downtown – knows and loves her city but still does business the old-fashioned “lemonade and front-porch” way.

Barry Personnel Resources has been through it all.  From the days when we were called an employment agency – a temporary agency – a search firm – a recruiting firm – and now a staffing firm.

Setting the standard all the way.   The mission has always been the same: to set the highest possible standard and put spirit back into the business world.

For many years, everyone in our business family has been related in that uniquely Chicago way of interconnected neighborhoods and intertwined business relations.  We are proud to say that we still have wonderful clients from our earliest days.

We invite you to look at our testimonial page (our references) and see for yourself.  As Peg always says when training new inside staff … “I don’t want to know about the individual’s references … I want to know their business reputation.”

Ours is established.
