Getting Food to the Doors of People Who Need it – A Case Study

Apr 22, 2020

The Need

On March 12th, 2020, Executrade received a call from an essential service in Calgary, Alberta, a grocer / food distribution organization that delivers local, organic groceries directly to homes. Due to a massive jump in sales during the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization was running into issues fulfilling all the new orders.

The Solution

Executrade, Alberta’s leader in Temporary and Permanent Staffing, was contacted by the company and we quickly utilized our proven methodology and vast network to find and vet qualified candidates.

The Benefit

By the end of the first week, Executrade had 6 workers in place in the Calgary location. Due to the high quality of workers provide, the relationship expanded significantly. Executrade is currently supporting in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver with stellar candidates of all levels.


Having recently been listed as an essential service we are proud to continue to partner with some great organizations, many of whom have also been deemed essential, as we all grapple with these unprecedented circumstances.  A current example is our partnership with an online grocer/food delivery service company that provides local and organic foods to their community members.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their demand for service has ramped up now more than ever and Executrade was contacted to assist in filling temporary Warehouse Production Team Member roles in multiple locations.

From the time of contact to the current day, Executrade has filled 7 warehouse roles and based on the quick and successful temporary placements, Executrade was awarded additional contract and permanent recruitment requests.  We will continue to meet the demand that our client faces during these unknown times and will adapt to the service level that works for them.

We are thrilled to be a trusted partner in providing human capital solutions during this busy time. Not only are we happy to help a valued client, we’re also grateful for the opportunity to put our candidates back to work and assist with their employment situation during this challenging time.
