New Workforce Solutions for a New Normal
The unanticipated severity of the novel coronavirus outbreak has not only applied a tremendous amount of pressure to our nation’s economic and physical health, it’s shown all the signs of altering the way we must conduct business moving forward, into a post-pandemic future. New normals will manifest, and new approaches to employment will become necessary. The staffing industry, as so many market sectors, is defined by healthy and heavy levels of competition. However, we have entered a different reality where unity, cohesion, and collaboration have risen as equally crucial components of our business models. Beyond that, as we’ve witnessed in current events, the push for diversity and inclusion now represents an unprecedented imperative. We at Rotator Staffing Services Inc. (RSSI) are embracing new paradigms where competition, inclusion, and community intersect to fuel new gains for every stakeholder engaged in talent acquisition.
A Diverse and Inclusive Workforce Management Solution for All
Despite the anxieties we all confront when trying to stand out from the crowd and add value, competition benefits our clients and our own evolution. Lately, though, we’ve seen our societies rocked by competing priorities and schisms as we struggle to restore stability during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing doesn’t mean that we, as a community, should forsake being social or allow distance to separate us from our mutually aligned goals. In undertaking a program predicated on bolstering business health while preserving the public health through contact tracing, we are working tirelessly to help our universe flourish.
“Testing and tracing are critical to our reopening plan, and New York is leading the nation on both fronts,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. “We’re testing more than any other state and now we’re working with Bloomberg Philanthropies and Johns Hopkins to quickly build an army of tracers for our contact tracing program that can serve as a model for the rest of the nation.”
Combatting the outbreak remains an urgent need for states across the country. To help limit the spread of COVID-19, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with Bloomberg Philanthropies, has launched a free online course to help “train a new cadre of contact tracers to reach and assist people exposed to the virus.”
The new course, “COVID-19 Contact Tracing,” highlights how contact tracing is a key component of a public health strategy to slow the spread of COVID-19 without large-scale shutdowns and stay-at-home orders. Through presentations by expert faculty and role plays, the course teaches the basics of interviewing people diagnosed with COVID-19, finding their close contacts who might have been exposed, and providing them advice and support for self-quarantine. Contact tracing is a public health practice that has been successful in breaking the chain of transmission of other infectious diseases, including measles and tuberculosis.
Rotator Staffing’s Contact Tracer Program is a robust innovation that brings businesses, workers, and staffing partners together—a unique iteration of the managed services provider (MSP) model that fosters diversity, local partnerships, and control over the spread of COVID-19. Our CEO is already certified under the Johns Hopkins Contact Tracer program, ensuring the rapid and efficient implementation of a workforce solution that maintains absolute compliance with protections such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), using proven technologies to secure Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
In the role of MSP, Rotator Staffing manages and supports a coalition of other firms that are certified to do business and employ workers in the state.
