Maintaining a High Level of Service to Your Business

In light of today’s ongoing uncertainty, our approach to the pandemic continues to evolve and adapt. We’re committed to ensuring the well-being of our employees and customers, while maintaining a thriving and active workforce.

We are working with our clients on a case-by-case basis to implement actions and procedures that will minimize risk of exposure in accordance with the standards set by the CDC and the OSHA. In addition, we are regularly communicating with all of our employees to provide them with up-to-date information, resources, and guidelines on how to avoid contracting communicable diseases and ensuring that these standards are adhered to at all of our worksites.

Emphasizing Flexibility and Scalability to Meet Your Needs

In such a tumultuous time, it’s critical that we remain as flexible and scalable as ever from an operations standpoint, in order to match your permanent and temporary staffing needs. We understand that your business may now be more prone to peaks and valleys in contingent labor demand, and we have pivoted to accommodate this new dynamic. Our primary focus is to ensure that our client-services teams are fully immersed in your daily operations and able to efficiently serve you. Our secondary focus is to continue to grow our talent pools not only for today, but also for the day that COVID-19 becomes a dwindling threat.
