Shobi Nunemacher – President

Referral Staffing Solutions (RSS) was opened in 2014 by Shobi Nunemacher. Shobi entered the staffing world in 2007 when she started in an entry-level role with a National Staffing Firm in Madison, WI. Shobi quickly fell in love with the staffing process and truly enjoyed finding the right fit for her clients and employees alike. She quickly moved up with that organization while attending Madison Area Technical College. After graduation, she applied for and became the Branch Manager.

After four years in that role, an opportunity with a smaller, Wisconsin based company presented itself in Sparta, WI where Shobi would be able to continue along the career path she fell in love with while returning to her “hometown” area.

After a few years in her new roles, Shobi saw opportunity to open her own business where she could continue providing top-notch service to clients and employees alike and Referral Staffing Solutions (RSS) was formed. RSS is dedicated to taking the time to get to know clients and employees in order to make the best fit for everyone the first time.

– Amanda
"Shobi goes out of her way to go the extra mile for her clients!"
– Rolan
"I think one of the best decisions of my life was to ask Shobi and her staff for a job. At the time I was out of work and looking to get back into the workforce. I was placed in a job & she continues to make sure that I am happy with where I am. A lot of places don’t build relationships like that. I have even worked with her husband Matt. Two super cool positive people in my life that care about who I am and where I want to go in my life. I really appreciate everything they have done for me."
– Scott
"I love working with the staff at RSS! Seriously – Shobi, Sarah, and Gail know their stuff. I am starting to use them for payroll services and onboarding. They do so much more though and I hope that be able to use them for their staffing solutions in the near future!!! Great business and a great team!"
