Year in Review

Krucial Staffing: Year in Review

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that a new year doesn’t guarantee happiness. It can be unpredictable, and no matter how many resolutions you set, a worldwide pandemic will put an end to a great deal of them.

As we say goodbye to the past year and hello to a new one, the bad memories don’t have to be the only ones we carry with us. Devastating is undoubtedly a fitting word to describe 2020, but so is uplifting, redeeming, saving, heroic, and more. We’ve seen thousands of Krucial Krew medical personnel put their lives at risk to save others or hold the hand of a dying patient when a family member could not. CEO Brian Cleary understands there is a silver lining to find as we move from 2020 into 2021.

“Krucial Staffing’s front-line warriors have been responding to our calls since March. Our response efforts have been intense, unpredictable, long, but also rewarding to serve our fellow people,” he said.

Cleary didn’t want to forget the contributions made by the dozens of Krucial’s full-time corporate employees.

“They have worked tirelessly, passionately, professionally, and always find a way to shed light in the darkest of times.”

The Krucial nurses and other medical personnel who deployed this year also knew they could turn a negative into a positive. Instead of standing on the sidelines, nurses like Kathy Turley put their lives on hold — and their talents to use — to help those suffering. Turley, an RN who deployed with Krucial over the summer, spoke about a particularly memorable experience a few months back.

“After work that night, we all prayed and cried with one another,” she said, “and that’s when I knew I had made the right decision to continue the fight against Covid-19 with Krucial and the Krucial Krew.”

Paul Baumert, who began working with Krucial Staffing in the fall of 2019 and is now part of the corporate managerial team with Krucial, was sent to offer his services during our New York deployments. It didn’t take long for him to realize the situation was dire.

“The first day that the nurses came back from work was extremely difficult. The look in their eyes as they walked towards the elevators gave away the gravity of the situation,” he said. “I will never forget one of them coming up to me and telling me that all 16 of his patients died on him during his shift.”

But in the true spirit of preservation and moving forward, Baumert also learned there was no stopping this Krucial Krew.

“That same nurse strapped on his PPE and went to work the next day and for months after. I will also never forget the group of nurses that built a hospital from the ground up over the course of a week or so.”

Another corporate Krucial lead, Leah Dozier of Workers Comp, said the company was a lifesaver for her shortly after experiencing a traumatic life event.

“The culture here is so phenomenal,” she said. “I am excited to see where we are heading.”

When she first started, Dozier was the case manager for deployed nurses who were required to quarantine in a hotel for two weeks after contracting Covid. With the pandemic just beginning, it was an uncertain and scary time for them. Dozier remembers her conversations, encouraging them through tough times.

“That daily interaction gave me a sense of pride,” she said.

From the operations team being available 24/7 to the front-line workers, there is no doubt that Krucial Staffing has positively impacted the country over the past nine months.

As we celebrate the end of a trying year, let us all remember what it has taught us and how it has made us stronger. While we will never forget the devastation 2020 has caused, we at Krucial hope you can remember the positive impact you all have, which undoubtedly will continue into 2021.
