Like many businesses during the corona virus pandemic, Integrated Staffing is having “a weird year,” according to co-owner Dhianna Yezzi. In the midst of it, the company moved from Glens Falls into new, larger space at 463 Maple Ave. in Saratoga Springs.
Integrated Staffing is a locally owned and operated temporary, temporary-to-permanent, and permanent staffing agency.
The new headquarters was once a house. An addition to the front of the building provides office space for five people in an open space off the former front foyer. Construction began before the pandemic but was halted because of it.
“It took about two years, but we finally have our addition,” she said. Its former office at 22 Hudson St. in Glens Falls is currently vacant but “we have the space and can open if needed.”
The company’s Albany satellite office is open by appointment only.
Among the challenges for the company during COVID-19, is that it works with NYRA to supply workers at Saratoga Race Course and Belmont Park. With the facilities closed to spectators in 202, they need less staff which, means less business for Integrated Staffing.
The company, however, has been marketing itself nationally and staffing clients from Target stores to Kansas State University as well as units of New York state government.
They provide IT, clerical, warehouse and similar workers, on either a temporary or permanent basis.
“We can market nationally since everything is virtual,” Yezzi said . In Kansas, for example, Integrated Staffing has a receptionist and a mailbox. Everything else happens in Saratoga Springs.
Integrated Staffing is certified as a woman-owned and disabled-person-owned business.
