Living Wage Certified, Experienced Professionals, Committed to Diversity
Blue Ridge Event Staffing started in 2012 with the core belief: A Living Wage should be the minimum wage. We start all of our staff at a living wage. Because of the nature of what we do, we can not offer full time employment to our event staff. However, we can ensure that the people we send to work in events in WNC are being justly paid. That belief forms the core from which our values extend.
