MOLARI Inc., Pittsfield
The same determination and resourcefulness that have made MOLARI Inc. a key player in the Berkshire County economy since 1983 have allowed the company to continue providing home health services to individuals and skilled employees to companies in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
MOLARI provides temporary and permanent employment services to businesses throughout the Berkshires, as well as in-home health care for seniors and disabled people and facilities staffing.
The company has kept people in the field this year by acquiring its own personal protective equipment and paying workers an extra $5 per hour so they can support their families while supporting those in need in the community.
The creativity is nothing new for MOLARI, which operates on the front lines of one of the most pressing issues facing employers in the Berkshires and beyond – locating and hiring qualified workers. The issue is particularly acute in the state’s westernmost county, which has seen its population decrease by 5 percent during the past decade.
The company is led by Gail Molari, Chief Executive Officer with more than 37 years of staffing experience. MOLARI employs approximately 220 people, making it one of the largest employers in the county.
“It’s a great place to work at if you’re looking for temporary work. They are very nice and treat you with respect. They try to make sure you got a job,” wrote one employee in an online post.
MOLARI owners and staff donate significant amount of time to the community, volunteering and sitting on local cultural and educational boards.
“We strive to help Berkshire County thrive,” the company says.
