Rapid Staffing Selected as the HART Outstanding Minority Business!

HART would like to extend a big congratulations to Rapid Staffing, Inc. for being selected as an outstanding minority business! As part of the designation, Rapid Staffing is receiving four weeks of bus advertising with HART and two weeks of television advertising on WTVT FOX 13. Rapid Staffing is also being featured on and a business spotlight is currently running on City of Tampa Television (CTTV).

Rapid Staffing is a Hillsborough County based staffing company, putting people back to work for companies in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Polk counties. Rapid Staffing is a certified Minority Business Enterprise by the state of Florida.

The company was selected because of its ability to survive the current economic climate, while giving back to the community. Their nomination also best showed how HART not only positively impacts the business, but also their family. Lani Harless, Owner of Rapid Staffing, regularly recommends HART to potential employees.

"We like to offer and recommend the bus system with HART," Harless said. "If they take HART and they go to work, they can get home from work [because] HART runs a lot of different routes (and) a lot of different hours -- early mornings and they go all the way up until some of the late hours of the evening."

Mrs. Harless's employees aren't the only ones using the service.

"My brother does use HART quite a bit," she said. "He uses it on a daily basis, Monday through Friday and he goes to and from work on a daily basis from Seffner to MacDill. That’s a long way and it would be hard to rely on friends and family for that commute."

Her brother, Steve Nunez, qualified for special transportation to work, but he said his service was cut because of state and local budget cuts. HART has and will continue to serve as reliable transportation for Steve, getting him to work so he can continue leading an independent and productive life.

Watch the four minute clip below for a greater look at Rapid Staffing. You can also catch it on CTTV's "Spotlight on Tampa," which runs throughout the month on Channel 15 for Verizon FiOS or 615 for Bright House customers.
