Evins Group and Rock Staffing are now Openwork!
We do things
Openwork is a candidate-focused staffing company on a mission to bring ease, accessibility, and thoughtfulness to an industry we’ve held a footing in for 50+ years. We believe there’s more to life than livelihood, but that finding your dream job, career, or team is a really good place to start.
At Openwork, we're part of a larger family. Learn more about our sister companies for help finding the right opportunities or top talent in California, Georgia, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and beyond.
We’re forward thinkers, but we’ve got a past to be proud of. A family-owned business through and through, we’re the same company you know and love—just with a slightly new look.
Ms. Mary Evins launches Evins Personnel Consultants and opens the first office in the Westgate building, next to the Texas state capitol. One of the oldest family-owned companies in Texas (and one of the very few woman - founded), Evins was created to help women find work.
Our trailblazing Ms. Evins becomes the only woman to chair any state’s Employment Agency Regulatory Board. Plus, she helped develop and implement the first personnel services industry certification program, the Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC). Since then, this prestigious honor has become a hallmark of any high-standard company in the industry (not to toot our own horn too much).
By the early 70s, Evins had opened over ten offices in Texas - mostly franchises owned by retired military service members. The company also launched its healthcare division.
Okay, it was the National Association of Personnel Services’ Hall of Fame, but still. She was recognized for her industry pioneering efforts and her “leadership, innovation, and ability to take risks.” That's our girl.
The company was one of only a few dozen companies to be awarded the Texas Historical Commission 50+ year old family business award.
A new family joins forces with the original team to help bring Ms. Evins’ leadership and innovative approach to helping employees find great careers, and helping employers find top talent to more communities.
Evins is rebranded as Openwork to expand the business beyond its original central Texas roots. Because everyone deserves to find their dream job, the Evins way!
We’re people people, fueled by helping others achieve their goals. Together, we can shape a better future for our team, talent and clients.
We all create and seek opportunities to learn and grow. By sharing knowledge and leading with empathy, we have a greater collective capacity for action and impact.
We all take initiative to improve our company, use good judgment, and look to the long term.
We always start with our customers (talent and clients) and actively work to earn their trust and exceed their expectations.
We are all servant leaders responsible for staying connected to the details, insisting on the highest standards, and developing other leaders.
We start with yes and figure out how with a sense of urgency. We fight for simplicity, rise to the occasion, and never settle when set back.
We believe good things start locally—just like we did. We also believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to find their dream career. That’s why we’ve partnered with a number of local organizations in Austin, participate in the Texas Workforce Commission’s “We Hire Vets,” and operate as a Second Chance employer. We’re dedicated to helping develop our community—like it did us.
