Talent Survey Results Showcase Key Insight from Gig Workers, Highlights Current State of the Hospitality Industry and Sentiment Around the Return to Work
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.
