Covax is a labour hire company that provides innovative staffing solutions for a diverse range of sectors, including healthcare, hospitality, security, human resources and environmental services. Persistent skill shortages and understaffing have become all too common now across multiple Australian industries, challenges the Covax team knows all too well.

Covax, with a workforce of more than 1000 people, has made it a mission to provide multiple industries with expert staff when and where necessary, matching the right talent to the right industries.

In this episode Dr Gupta talks through how Covax began, how it grew overnight during COVID-19, how it hired staff and the business evolved during the pandemic and how Covax has pivoted after the vaccine rollout and lockdowns.
