With hygiene and sanitation continuing to be one of the most essential parts of businesses reopening and restoring consumer confidence, on-demand hospitality staffing platform Jitjatjo introduces its newest program: CleanDisinfect.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the accommodation and foodservice sector had lost more than 10 million jobs since January, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. With recovery moving at a snail’s pace all over the country, there is no timetable for those jobs to return, if ever. #hirehospitality aims to solve that problem.
The hospitality industry is in a fragile state. Jitjatjo, a staffing company, is hoping to fill in the gap.
The hospitality industry has been hit particularly hard by layoffs due to the COVID-19 crisis. While many companies and brands are focusing on donating and raising money for relief funds, Jitjatjo, an on-demand staffing platform for the hospitality industry, has taken a different approach.
In this Q&A, Jitjatjo founder Tim Chatfield discusses the #hirehospitality campaign and how he’s matching up unemployed workers with understaffed government and medical worksites.
As the CEO and Co-Founder of Jitjatjo, a human-powered company headquartered in New York City, I believe we have a civic obligation to serve the community in its time of need.
In response to the recent spread of COVID-19 in the U.S., and following the lead of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), Jitjatjo has implemented free COVID-19 Awareness and Hygiene Training for their 10,000+ hospitality talent.
