About Us

Richard’s Employment Agency was founded in March 2003 to serve the Greater Hartford area of Connecticut. Our focus is to help people find jobs at entry level at client companies that offer training.

In 2017, Richard’s Employment Agency created an auto division called “Auto Staffing”. This division focuses on providing easy, low stress driving jobs on a flexible work schedule to our employees here in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Shuttling rental cars for daily trips from Connecticut to Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York. We also provide driving jobs for a local auto auction, moving cars in its lot during the week and on auction day.

We are expanding our service in Naples and Fort Myers, Florida in the summer of 2022. We offer long-term employment as well as short-term, if desired. Our entry-level/no experience necessary work assignments are on the bus line. We welcome Spanish-speaking people since the job site supervisors and/or co-workers speak Spanish for training.

Throughout the years, we have earned the trust of some of the largest companies in the area, including the largest printing company in Connecticut, the largest privately-owned auto auction in the United States, and a nationwide car rental company shuttling cars throughout New England. All of this is possible because of the hard work and dedication from our management staff and our great employees that get the job done well. We pride ourselves on creating a thriving and cohesive work environment for our Team!

Richard Blais, Founder & CEO of Richard's Employment Agency

Richard Blais

FOUNDER & CEO

“It’s a blessing to have the capability of providing employment to good people and impacting their lives in a positive way.”

I grew up in Hartford, Connecticut. Since my early 20s, my business goal has been to be an entrepreneur and a businessman. Throughout my business life, I have met many successful business people that have helped me direct my own path. In 2003, I founded Richard’s Employment Agency.

When not working, I enjoy cruises and traveling internationally. My interest is in exotic cars and muscle cars. I enjoy going to car shows and watching the Motor Trend channel.

Senior Vice President & CFO

“What I feel good about is the contribution I make to ensure that all financial and legal functions of a multi-million dollar company with hundreds of employees are covered. It is challenging and rewarding.”

I grew up in Suffield, Connecticut. With paralegal and administrative experience, I was able to help Richard start Richard’s Employment Agency in 2003. I currently handle all the financials for the company.

I enjoy traveling to interesting cities around the country and abroad. My favorites so far, England, Aruba, and Las Vegas. I love cars, especially Porsches. My next car will be a 1968 Camaro, just like my first car. I have a little Havanese dog named “Pierre” who travels with me back and forth between Connecticut and Florida.

Jessica Boivin

Vice President

I grew up in Broad Brook, Connecticut. My previous experience is in logistics and team management. I met Richard when the company I worked for began using his staffing services. When our company closed in 2006, I teamed up with Richard’s Employment Agency.

My favorite part of the day is when I take new employees with no experience and watch them grow into well-rounded, highly skilled team members. I am often found volunteering at the local soup kitchen or catching some sun while fishing. I’m a loving mother of two wonderful, strong-minded young men, one in college and the other in the military. We are big fans of sports. Go Yankees and Giants!!

Nick Martinelli, Auto Staffing Operations Manager at Richard's Employment Agency

Nick Martinelli

Auto Staffing Operations Manager

“What I enjoy about my day managing at the auto auction is the challenge and responsibility. With our great team of employees, we make it happen for our clients.”

I grew up in Stamford, Connecticut. I was vice president of a large direct mail company for 20 years. We were a client of Richard’s Employment Agency for several years. After the company sold, Richard and I stayed in touch. When Richard had the opportunity to work with a large auto auction, he asked me if I would be interested in managing the facility as operations manager, I graciously accepted.

I really enjoy all types of music (especially live) and love to hike, bike, and kayak. Also, I’m a big fan of the New York Yankees and the New York Football Giants.
