ShiftPixy to launch MIAMI WORKS
In partnership with community development groups and local universities, the company will host the inaugural in a series of events on Saturday, June 26, 2021. The campaign’s launch will help workers find opportunities that offer a sign-up bonus, wages, and flexible schedules.
South Florida has been experiencing a severe pandemic-induced labor shortage, which has posed a massive challenge for the area that depends on the hospitality and tourism sectors. MIAMI WORKS will enable businesses to find and hire qualified individuals and allow them to bet back on course and successfully meet customer demand. After the inauguration, the company will launch a 60-day marketing campaign to match registered workers with available opportunities.
ShiftPixy to address worker shortage in Miami
In addition to the labor scarcity affecting the restaurant and hospitality industries, some authorities threaten to force third-party delivery firms to reclassify drivers from contract workers to employees, jeopardizing their business strategy and the establishments they serve. As COVID-19 limitations ease, ShiftPixy can provide a secure platform with fair salaries and benefits for these delivery employees, allowing restaurants to lessen their dependency on third-party services by stepping up their own recruiting and hiring efforts to fulfill pent-up demand.
Scott Absher, the CEO, said, “The pandemic deeply wounded Miami’s lush and vibrant hospitality industry, so we were inspired to develop an actionable campaign with the best cohort of local groups to help restore that vitality – and fast. MIAMI Works is designed to benefit both hospitality operators as well as the workforce at a time both are desperately in need of a means to recover and grow.”
