PrideStaff Provides Critical Personnel to Help Essential Businesses Staff Up Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

April 3, 2020

As more states are ordering businesses to temporarily close and millions of residents to stay at home because of the coronavirus, PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is proud to partner with essential businesses, helping to secure the talent they need during these challenging times.

While much of the nation is at a standstill, many organizations must remain open to provide indispensable services. Individuals working in critical infrastructure industries—such as healthcare services, and pharmaceutical, and food supply—have a special responsibility to maintain their normal work schedule. The government has identified 14 employment categories as Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers; their contributions are imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both public health and safety as well as community well-being.

As a leading national staffing and employment agency with more than 80 offices across the United States, PrideStaff is answering the call of duty, working relentlessly to keep these critical businesses and organizations running smoothly. Backed by best-in-class technology and processes, the staffing franchise quickly pivoted when the pandemic hit to accelerate its transition to remote operations. Their offices are actively using online recruiting, virtual interviews and proprietary technology to seamlessly support their clients’ staffing and hiring needs during the pandemic.

“PrideStaff is extremely proud to help in any way we can during this difficult time when staying fully staffed is more important than ever for employers in critical infrastructure sectors,” said PrideStaff COO, Tammi Heaton. “Thanks to smart tech investments we made years ago, it has allowed many of our offices to work 100% remote and provide essential staffing support.”

“Right now, we have people across the nation working in healthcare, medical device manufacturing, food packaging, accounting and finance, distribution, call center, supply chain, light industrial roles and more,” continued Heaton. “The hard work of our internal team and field associates is making a meaningful impact during the coronavirus pandemic; their commitment and performance throughout this crisis reflect what PrideStaff is all about.”

To complement its workforce and recruiting solutions, PrideStaff has also developed robust COVID-19 online resources for employers and job seekers:

  • COVID-19 Resources: information about coronavirus prevention and the steps PrideStaff is taking to respond to client and associate requests.
  • Watercooler Blog: packed with timely workplace best-practices and career advice.
  • Innovations Live Webinars: webinars that tackle challenging topics like legislative updates, workplace changes, and more.
  • Employer eBooks: comprehensive library sharing decades of practical advice to build a stronger workforce and solve common workplace challenges.
  • One-on-one support: PrideStaff team members are available to provide the support and guidance employers and individuals need to manage challenges during this pandemic and beyond.

The success of PrideStaff’s approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry. According to ClearlyRated, a business intelligence firm specializing in the staffing industry, PrideStaff earned a client Net Promoter® Score (NPS) as high as or higher than other well-known brands such as Southwest Airlines and Netflix. NPS is computed by subtracting a firm’s detractors from its promoters.
