The Dover Story

A Brief History

  • Founding, 1996


    DoverStaffing was founded in 1996 by Sanquinetta Dover, President. The company’s participation in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program proved to be a valuable source of opportunities and experience for the company even after Dover’s graduation from the program.

    Years of listening to the needs of employers and to the challenges of job seekers to meet those needs alerted Ms. Dover to the shortage of human resource capacity in the Atlanta area. In 1999, she launched the Dover Training Institute and in 2002 received 501 (c) 3 status.
