Scott Sabo

CEO and Founder

When Scott Sabo opened LaborWorks in 1998, it was a logical step. As Scott notes, “I’ve had three jobs since college, and they all started with the word ‘labor:’ Labor World USA, Labor Ready, and LaborWorks.

Scott is passionate about helping customers grow their business through the flexibility contingent staffing brings to the table. He comments, “The human aspect of helping great people find jobs and get back on their feet is also a great part of what I enjoy. I'm committed to constantly looking for ways to enhance our product and services, fulfill promises and be 'Always Available' to clients." In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his family doing water and ocean sport activities, particularly fly fishing and wake surfing.
