They share any information that’s available concerning our business or things that might affect our business. And I think they also are very effective in helping you understand why you need to look at things differently if you’re not looking at them the right way.

We are constantly on the alert for all the latest industry news, legislative updates, trends and more that could possibly impact your staffing business. Our president and CEO, Julie Ann Bittner, also shares her insights on the staffing industry in her message (link below). And when we don’t see information about a topic we feel is critical for you to know, we create it ourselves to share in our monthly email.

Press Room

By Julie Ann Bittner, President / CEO, TRICOM

What a year it has been. For me, Friday the 13th of March will be forever etched in my mind. It was the day TRICOM enacted our Pandemic Plan. I still remember the blank faces, looks of shock, uncertainty, and confusion as I talked to our staff.  That was over five months ago now and was something I thought would only last a few weeks. Today I hear a lot of “I can’t wait until 2020 is over.”  We still have four months to go, so let’s make the best of it with our businesses.

You survived the initial shock of the pandemic breakout along with stay-at-home orders, then navigating your way through the FFCRA and CARES Act, applying for a PPP loan, getting your staff back to work, and loan forgiveness data. Now it’s time to refocus and put a plan for the “new normal” in place.

Recently I saw this quote by Charles Darwin that was really on point: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.” We all must respond to change. How we respond and how quickly we respond could be the difference between success and failure for your business.

There’s a lot of uncertainty right now. Everyone is trying to adapt to the “new normal.” With so much changing so quickly, making a change to your administrative or funding provider may seem like the last thing you want to do. However, here’s why NOW is a perfect time to make a switch to TRICOM and empower your staffing company to:

  • Improve efficiency
  • Drive productivity
  • Eliminate capacity constraints
  • Reduce labor and associated personnel expenses by refocusing them on other revenue generating activities
  • Switch expenses to a variable cost based on volume instead of a fixed cost

Plus, TRICOM does all the heavy lifting when it comes to making the switch. You provide a few basic pieces of information and we take care of the rest.

“I definitely can say that I go to bed every night very relaxed. I am able to sleep very well just knowing that TRICOM and their partners are taking care of me and my business.” — Juan Diaz, President / CEO, ProStaff

Although it’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day business operations, we’ve come to recognize over the years that it’s important to take a step back and continue our own learning and growth when it comes to leadership — not only for the benefit of TRICOM as a company, but also for us to share this knowledge with our clients and the staffing industry.

For this reason, the TRICOM management team virtually attended the Global Leadership Summit the first week in August. We were floored by the amazing presentations, but one stood out to the entire team: Craig Groeschel’s opening presentation entitled, “Leading Through the Dip.”

In this presentation, Craig talks about times when you hit a ceiling, when what you’ve always done in your business no longer works, and taking the risk to try something new – even if it means a temporary downturn in productivity or efficiency.

In his presentation, Craig guides attendees to “understand the power of unmaking promises, leading with confident uncertainty, obsessing with the why, and having the courage to do some things that may feel like a step backwards so that we can take several steps forward.”
