Case Study: Service Systems Associates and COSI

How Upshift Has Helped SSA and COSI Meet Staffing Demands for Events

In 2017, SSA were utilizing temp agencies when they had large events. They were consistently unable to get as many people as they needed, plus many of those sent by agencies were not reliable or high-quality workers.

Fast-forward to now, and COSI has all of its shifts consistently filled with Upshifters who have service industry experience and a better outlook on work than traditional temporary workers.

What started as a one-off relationship has now blossomed into a national one, with Upshifters helping SSA in all cities where Upshift is available.
