My business partner and cofounder, Patrick Brandt, and I spoke with Forbes reporter, Kristin Stoller, about the inventive capabilities we added to Shiftsmart’s platform over the last year to empower workers affected by an ever changing labor market. There are so many individuals whose incomes were adversely disrupted by the pandemic and its impact to our economy. We were very proud that Shiftsmart could serve as a platform to the unemployed, displaced, and food insecure. 

Kristin learned first-hand how Shiftsmart was able to aid a major portion of our users in the hospitality industry who were suddenly unemployed. By leveraging our platform we were able to provide more than $20 million in wages to workers across the country. We also spoke about the incredible year of growth Shiftsmart had and how that positively impacted  our partners.

It is an honor to be featured in Forbes and to have our team recognized for the hard work and hours they put into our company to make the modern day workforce run efficiently. To read the full article, click here.
