Case Study

Pandemic Pushes Sanitation Company to Grow HR Fast

Midwest Enviro Solutions


Midwest Enviro Solutions is a sanitation company based out of Manchester, MI. The company was founded by owner Rick Allen who began his career in home inspection in the early 1980s. He later pivoted to focus on a more specific set of client needs: testing and treating homes and offices for mold and other harmful air contaminants.

Due to the pandemic causing a boom in the sanitation and decontamination needs throughout the community, owner Rick Allen found his small business growing rapidly. To meet the needs of the community, additional staff was required, and with that came a growing need for fast and simple HR solutions. Midwest Enviro Solutions partnered with BCN to address these needs.

The Challenge

Midwest Enviro Solutions was expanding rapidly and needed to be able to focus on growing their business to be able to provide more of their vitally important sanitation and decontamination services. The company needed help with the HR services to accommodate this growth, and fast.
