The administration and support of ESC are superior.

I love and appreciate all they bring to our business.

“The ESC team that we get the privilege to work with is what makes the total experience the BEST in class. Our temporary employees like the benefit offerings and the entire program runs smoothly, both for us operationally and for the employees to receive benefits.”

“The Essential StaffCARE team is extremely professional, responsive and always super pleasant! My experiences have always been very positive, even when they have to email repeatedly because I'm super busy! I am proud to offer ESC coverage to our associates, and have rolled this out to our other states, as well.”

Jason T.

“I like that ESC is geared towards staffing companies with week-to-week coverage and easy enrollment and deduction setup. We had strayed and tried a different company at one point and after only a month regretted that decision and soon returned to ESC as the insurance provider for our team members in over 20 offices nationwide. The support center is not only very quick to respond and resolve issues but is also very helpful and accommodating when those issues are due to our offices not double checking that all information on the enrollment forms was completed, if forms were sent with incorrect information, etc.”

Steve S.

“Customer Service is excellent. Any and all matters are handled timely and efficiently. Open Enrollment is a breeze as well as our on-boarding process.”

Tara C.

“I like that anytime I have an issue or questions that no matter who I reach out to , I always get a response almost immediately.”

A Client

“I like that ESC handles the full administration of the benefits for the temporary workforce. Tracking and administration would be a huge burden on our staff.”

A Client

“Essential StaffCARE makes offering benefits to our staffing employees easy!”
