ESR helps local partner businesses survive and thrive by providing an affordable, quality workforce.
- Independent employees who work onsite with support from their job coach assisting in their development as a productive member of the employer’s team.
- Work crews – onsite crews comprised of usually 4-5 crew members and a coach. These are contracted crews working either at an agreed upon hourly rate or a piece rate. Costs for insurance, taxes and transportation are included in the very affordable contracted rate. Employers have a more dependable work force, eliminating sick time, tardiness, and work flow interruptions.
- Contract work done for the business at one of our four production centers. This type of work is often project-focused with a contracted rate per piece. Several of our production centers offer loading dock facilities and pick-up and delivery if needed.
