Brief History

Welcome to the Krucial Kollective!

We are so proud of everything we get to do here at Krucial Staffing. You may have just recently heard of us because of our involvement in the COVID-19 response, so here is a brief history of who we are and where we have come from.

To put it simply, we are an emergency staffing company based out of Overland Park, Kansas that was created out of a necessity to meet the demands of emergency and disaster staffing. Krucial has been an independent entity for over a year, but we have been a part of sending aid to disaster zones for almost a decade now with our sister company, Favorite Healthcare Staffing. When Joplin, Missouri was struck by an EF-5 tornado in 2011, we sent 102 RNs to help. These RNs were key in supporting patient movement in impacted hospitals to surrounding facilities. From then on, we took part in other urgent relief programs including hurricane, medical, and border shelter assistance.

Back in March, Krucial Staffing was a small crew of 16 corporate employees. When COVID-19 first hit the USA, we sprang into action! We started activating and deploying clinical staff to New York City and New Orleans. Over the course of seven months, we grew to over 100 staff-members at the corporate location. We made it a point to support local businesses and restaurants throughout the quarantine while continuing to activate and deploy over 11,000 professionals to NYC, New Orleans, Texas, and Florida. As we have grown in numbers, we have also grown as a company in this field. We are constantly evolving and improving the process of emergency activation. Typically, 75% of our activated staff are on site within 24 hours of activation, and we have even deployed personnel to be on site within hours to start their first shift. We could not do this without our amazing staff at Corporate, our Krucial Onsite Representatives, and our Reservists who are willing to step into the fray!

This has been a trying season for everyone, not just Krucial Staffing. Though our fight with COVID-19 is not done yet, to have the opportunity to step up to the plate and to be a positive force alongside the front-liners during this pandemic has been an experience we can only describe as surreal and motivating. Reasons like this are why we are in emergency staffing. People are resilient and strong, especially in times of crises, and we want you to know that we are here for you.

  • I am so thankful that I have been privileged to be a part of the Krucial Krew family, as an RN. since March of 2020.
    I worked in NYC as a nurse and loved the experience. Unfortunately. I got the corona corona virus and had to come home. Thank God it was not a bad case of the virus.
    I returned to Texas with Krucial ad a nurse in November and December. I had a fantastic time with great nurses and hospital staff.
    I am ready to go again! The experience with Krucial is a blessing and a way to help others where needed!
    The company is a blessing to so many. Thank you for letting me be a part of your family!
