What Does The Rising Covid-19 Cases Mean for Staffing Agencies?

Covid-19 Cases are Rising. What Does This Mean for Staffing Agencies?

“Covid cases are rising again in all 50 states across the U.S. as delta variant tightens its grip.” 


The beginning of the year 2021 had been a sort of relief for the staffing business since there had been a significant decline in the number of COVID-19 cases and good scope for the business to get back on track.

It all seemed like a movie with a happy ending- the population getting fully vaccinated and offices opening their door after almost two years. However, we witnessed a plot twist right when the new delta variant started creating news as well as a rise in Covid-19 cases across the nation. 

The staffing companies are already facing significant challenges in sourcing the right talent for the clients due to the ongoing talent crisis, and these rising cases have just made the situation worst for them.

What does this whole situation mean for the staffing businesses? Another year of business growth uncertainty? Or, another year of badly trying to sustain the unemployment and Covid-19 crisis?


The above scenarios have a good possibility of taking place, but what best staffing businesses can do is prepare better this time. Yes, the first wave of the Covid-19 has been totally unpredictable. The spike in the cases happened out of the blue, leaving the businesses in total mayhem.


But, this time, the situation is not the same. Yes, there has been a similar rise in the number of cases and economic uncertainty- plus, the talent crisis. Still, businesses can learn from the past and prepare better by incorporating the right solutions in their daily processes.


When the first wave had hit us badly, staffing businesses did not have the right technological solutions in place to ensure the safety measures for the workers. However, today, the case is different.


Staffing agencies today need to switch to solutions that offer assistance in ensuring the health safety of the workers. Or, check if their existing staffing software is offering similar functionalities.


The rising cases and the talent crisis are not in our hands. But, what the best these staffing agencies can do is partner with a staffing solution provider who is equally concerned about safe staffing practices.


For instance, smart staffing solutions like NextCrew have upgraded their app to ensure the health safety of your workers. We’ve revamped our mobile app by adding a checkbox that demands the workers to validate their health condition and exposure to larger crowds in recent times.


Your worker’s safety is NextCrew’s priority, and that’s what is the need of the hour. In order to survive this period better than how we did last year, we need to make the right choice—the choice which begins with deploying the technologically smart solution with a “safety-first” approach.


The cases are increasing across the nation. What are you waiting for?
