As COVID-19 spread, unprecedented challenges for companies of all sizes and types quickly emerged. This is especially true for those businesses deemed “essential”, most notably those that sell food and grocery items. For one such company, an urgent need for a large number of sanitation workers emerged. Nesco Resource evolved an existing relationship to ensure enough staff were sourced and placed while still adhering to state and federal guidelines.

The Challenge

Rapidly changing regulations and state-wide edicts suddenly created new staff positions for many businesses. Notably, grocery and food companies quickly recognized the need for onsite sanitation workers. These workers are responsible for sanitizing all areas of a building, promoting overall cleanliness and even tracking store capacity. Without sanitation workers, many companies wouldn’t be able to adhere to regulations and therefore would not remain open.

The Solution

A long-standing client - a large regional grocery chain - had previously utilized Nesco Resource’s payroll services for over 10 years. The COVID-19 crisis resulted in an urgent need for staffing numbers that were not being met internally. They reached out to Nesco seeking help finding, vetting and placing sanitation workers across all their grocery locations.

The Result

In order to meet these new demands, Nesco needed to approach the situation with resourcefulness and focus. By using existing technology and personal relationships, Nesco Resource was able to find, evaluate and place 450+ new sanitation employees within only 2.5 weeks. Additionally, Nesco provided the client with detailed dashboard reporting and daily check-ins to ensure success of the project.
