An audit of the nation’s staffing agencies found them ready and able to provide workers for all of the “essential critical infrastructure” jobs listed by the Department of Homeland Security.
Conducted by the American Staffing Association, the audit analyzed 185 essential jobs identified by the government finding staffing agencies able to “source and deploy personnel to fill orders for 100%” of the positions. The list of essential jobs, published March 28, covers 16 broad sectors including healthcare and pharmaceutical, food and agriculture, logistics, technology and financial services.
“From nurses and emergency physicians, to truck drivers, forklift operators, and beyond, staffing agencies are providing the essential workers the nation needs now and as we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer of the American Staffing Association.
As a member of the ASA, Green Key Resources has placed a priority on filling essential jobs in hospitals, financial institutions and other critical sectors of the economy.
“Even before the government-ordered shutdown, we reached out to all of our clients to assess their special and anticipated needs,” says Managing Partner Andrew Chayut. “Since the shutdown, we’ve filled multiple, urgent requests from employers in critical and essential businesses, and we continue to give these our highest priority.
“In addition, we’re still providing staff for other businesses that are continuing to operate remotely,” he added.
All Green Key Resources associates across the country continue to work from home. With full access to our company systems, we are able to work as seamlessly as if we were in the office to fill essential and nonessential needs. Give us a call at (212) 683-1988.
