Patsy Ware’s job is to find good work for good local people. Since becoming president and owner of BesTemps of Dover in 2008, she has registered 5,326 Delawareans for temporary work in a territory that stretches from Greenwood to Wilmington. Ware finds for clients skilled and unskilled labor positions in industrial plants, construction companies and businesses. “Unemployment is up because businesses are gone,” says Ware. “I have manufacturing experts, college grads, machine operators and superintendents. What I find is that they just don’t know where to start.” Ware has endured a challenging year, but money “is not the object,” she says. “If a person stays down too long, it’s hard to get back up. Short of holding hands and walking people into the door, I’ll do everything I can to get them back to work.”
CHEAP PAPER Ware found a great way to reduce printing costs. She uses the services at the Department of Correction. “We’re talking 500 business cards for $17.”
PEACE OF MIND Ware works with agencies that provide temporary health insurance to temps. She also absorbs workers’ compensation and liability insurance for temps.
