Hourly Workforce Shifting to Address Logistical Impacts of Coronavirus Pandemic

BOSTON, March 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jobble, the marketplace for the gig economy and hourly workforce, announced today they are increasing efforts to fulfill the expanding demand of hourly workers for the supply-chain industries. The strategy aligns with the Jobble mission of putting Americans to work, while also assisting hourly employees who are now out of work due to government mandated closures of public events, restaurants, and bars.

The pandemic created a consumer buying frenzy, which has increased a need for hourly workers restocking superstores, distribution centers, and other related retailers. "Supermarket and superstore shelves are not empty because of supply, but because the stores do not have enough help in stocking, distribution, and delivery," states Zack Smith, CEO of Jobble, "We can help the overburdened part of the supply-chain problem with our base of 500,000 active, hourly workers that can be deployed tomorrow anywhere in the United States. We are already seeing an incredible surge in hiring needs from business partners such as Restaurant Depot."

Jobble continues to keep their community of workers and businesses informed of corporate's Coronavirus strategy via email and their social media accounts. "Like most companies, we are closely monitoring the pandemic and making hourly changes to our communication strategy," says Lauren Kurkul, VP of Marketing. "Our priority is first and foremost the health and safety of both our workers and our business partners. While Jobble understands the importance of social-distancing, we also know that hourly workers still need to pay bills. We are focusing our marketing efforts on helping hourly workers find safe, temporary work."

Jobble is the marketplace for the gig economy and hourly workforce. The industry leading platform brings together the 60 million gig economy workers and companies that offer flexible work opportunities. Whether a company is looking to source active candidates, simplify their supplemental workforce, or integrate a full service workforce solution, Jobble is the gateway to the gig economy and hourly workers with an all-in-one marketplace that supports the needs of businesses of all sizes.
