We have hired several temporary workers full-time through Lofton Staffing.  The weekly visits from Amber Ewing help us build a strong relationship with Lofton.  Our needs are always known and met.

Lofton takes the time to get us the right candidates.  Sarah visited our location to understand our needs to find the best candidate. Temps worked out as expected. The last temp was hired full time.

Extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and very friendly. Keep doing what you are doing. Great Job!

Who We Are

Since 1979, Lofton has built a reputation on providing staffing solutions that companies can rely on to make their businesses more efficient, cost-effective and profitable. Our founder, Mr. Thomas I. Lofton, spent more than fifteen years in human resources management in the chemical industry. Utilizing his experience, he began his own temporary help company as a franchise of a large national company.

That two-room office has grown over the last 35 years to the largest locally owned, independent staffing and security company in Louisiana, boasting eight offices in Louisiana, two offices in Texas, and one in Arkansas and Mississippi.  Our corporate office is located in Baton Rouge, LA. In 2000, Lofton became completely independent and changed its name to reflect the entrepreneur who began our business.

Lofton's History

Lofton is a family owned business, now in its second generation of ownership by Tommy Lofton's sons, Bret and Bart Lofton, who were named Co-Presidents in 2002. Tommy Lofton remained as Chairman until 2006 when he retired. Through the brothers' leadership, Lofton Staffing and Lofton Security employ over 8,100 assignment employees and security officers, supported by over 100 corporate internal staff, providing our employees and clients with the resources they need at a moment's notice.

Tommy Lofton founded The Lofton Corporation in 1979, but our mission has never changed – to provide the best service possible. Lofton is a regional leader in the staffing industry. Businesses look to Lofton to help provide quality candidates to fill their staffing needs. We have ongoing relationships with some of the finest companies in the Gulf South. People with all types of interests and skills come to Lofton to find satisfying work. Whether you are looking for a temporary or full-time position, Lofton can find you the right assignment based on your skills and experience.

Our Mission

Our purpose is to provide the best service possible. To do this, we strive for perfection in every aspect. We will set high standards for ourselves. We are committed to develop, with respect to every individual, each employee to the highest level of performance. We study, train and work not only to serve our clients, but to serve each other. Understanding that if we help each other to improve, we have already improved ourselves.

Learn More About Lofton

We Believe...

Relationships are built…one on one.
Know your people - match interest and talents to the tasks.
Don’t manage by numbers. (They just show if we’re on track.) People do the work.
People should feel better when they leave than when they came – and in turn we feel better.
When we help others, we help ourselves.
Great expectations: fair pay, fair treatment, teach me.
Have fun…and be better.
Work at having fun (51% of the time.) If you don’t feel it, fake it. Having fun is not slacking off. Work is more natural than play.
