Speak with a Crisis Staffing Expert

Immediate high-volume disaster staffing solution

When a crisis strikes, you need an emergency staffing solution that can ramp up efficiently on short notice. It would be naïve to say any one staffing company can handle every situation.  That’s why we created our Consortium Partner model. Here, we curate a specialized consortium of local staffing firms with specific skill specialty areas.  All must be members of the American Staffing Association and/or their local staffing association, ensuring all firms maintain strict ethical and performance standards, and are experts in the areas of screening, credentialing, recruiting, onboarding and placing highly qualified professionals. Our support and scheduling team oversee the consortium and serve as our client’s single point of contact for order placement, time capture and approval, invoicing and reporting.

Natural Disaster

Emergency Staffing
When a disaster strikes, it’s likely your workforce will be stretched in many directions, making a coordinated response difficult. Let us take on the burden of supplementing your staff, by sourcing, screening, and assigning as many people as you need, to help your team succeed.

Epidemic and Endemic

Call Center and HQ

Triage Staffing

IT Infrastructure

Recovery Staffing
Our group of IT specialists have real-world experience managing disaster recovery plans. Our experts will work with you to evaluate risk, identify critical assets that need to be protected, recover data from backups, and test and optimize systems for the future.

Staffing Technology Built for Disaster Staffing Scenarios

Our staffing software is custom built to address the needs of emergency staffing solutions. With immediate scalability, we distribute your vacant roles to as many staffing firms as necessary with local staffing experience. These firms build rosters of credentialed, on-demand staff right in our software and then assign them to open roles under the oversight of our scheduling team.  We then aggregate all the submissions into consolidated daily schedule sheets, so that our clients can see at a glance all roles are filled.

Emergency Staffing - Case Study

During the height of the COVID pandemic, we were asked by the NYS DOH to coordinate the emergency staffing solution for all mass vaccination sites around the state which would need, at the peak, 5,000 clinical and non-clinical employees.  Recognizing a need for our consortium partner model, we signed on 35 staffing firms to our specialized staffing platform. The result—we placed over 538 clinical and non-clinical staff in three days and built to over 5,000 clinical and non-clinical employees at the peak. We can repeat that same immediate scalability during any crisis on a national level. The infographic below highlights some key successes of the program:
