At the first in-person meeting held since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Richfield Area Chamber of Commerce named Ensign Staffing as their Business of the Month during a meeting held at Frontier Village, June 10.
Ensign Staffing is locally owned and operated and has helped hundreds of people find work with over 175 different employers throughout the area. In 2019, Ensign Staffing helped over 300 people find work with an average pay of over $15.00 an hour, according to Mark Alger, owner.
“Ensign Staffing is committed to making the community a better place to live and work,” Alger said. “We remodeled a building, located at 50 South Main Street, Richfield, last year that had been vacant for over four years. The move has allowed us to accommodate the growth we have experienced over the last few years. An open house was scheduled, but had to be postponed due to COVID-19, but are planning to have the event in a couple of months.”
Alger said, Ensign Staffing has tried to support students and local businesses through these challenging times. In addition to their annual scholarship, Ensign Staffing did a promotion where they recognized graduating seniors and gave $150 to a lucky senior from each high school in the county.
Ensign Staffing also created a Take-Out Trophy contest to encourage people to support local restaurants and recognized the winning restaurants by purchasing gift cards and presenting them with a trophy, according to Alger.
“Ensign Staffing would like to thank everyone for their support,” Alger said. “And, we want to thank the Richfield Area Chamber for the honor of being business of the month. We invite anyone looking for employment to visit us at our new location.”
