Edina-based staffing firm becomes first in Minnesota to be awarded certification focused on risk management

“With what RCS has brought to us, we are now more poised than ever to advise our clients and prospects on worker safety.”

Doherty Staffing Solutions announced today that it has now been awarded Workers’ Compensation Risk Certification (WRC).

The WRC Certification initiative is provided as a service of the American Staffing Association (ASA), staffing industry risk management consulting firm RCS, and the volunteer efforts of the WRC Advisory Council.

WRC recognizes staffing companies that practice best-in-class risk management to reduce workplace injuries and related costs. WRC-certified companies maintain that a focus on safety and risk management protects their employees while offering a higher level of service to clients.

“We are always striving for continuous improvement at Doherty, and realized that RCS is both highly visible and recognized in the industry as having the best practices when it comes to risk management,” said Al Brown, president of Doherty Staffing Solutions. “With what RCS has brought to us, we are now more poised than ever to advise our clients and prospects on worker safety.”

Doherty is the only staffing company in the state of Minnesota to hold WRC certification.

To be awarded certification, companies undergo a thorough review of their operational practices as they pertain to hiring and screening, substance abuse, talent matching, employee orientation, client safety evaluations and partnerships, incident investigations and corrective measures, and return-to-work programs. The results are compared against a system of best practices developed by an advisory council of insurance carriers, insurance brokers, and staffing industry risk managers.
