Jitjatjo Expands to Chicago
Jitjatjo, an on-demand platform that instantly and intelligently connects experienced, quality talent to the employers who need them, announced that the service is expanding into the Chicago market to provide restaurants, bars, caterers, hotels, stadiums and attractions, corporate hospitality providers, event planners and other venue operators with access to experienced front-of-house and back-of-house hospitality professionals.
Since launching at the end of 2016, New York City’s premier restaurants, bars and venues, including Tao Group, Black Barn, Mulberry & Vine, City Bakery and Gabriel Kreuther, have used Jitjatjo to help supplement their staffing requirements. Across NYC, demand for Jitjatjo has been strong with year-over-year job postings increasing by more than 350%.
For clients, Jitjatjo helps operators in the hospitality industry fill staffing voids by providing access to their vetted and highly-skilled W2 workers that can arrive on location in as quickly as an hour. Jitjatjo works by analyzing bookings, and intelligently matching the best talent to the venue’s needs, based on the talent’s experience, location, skills, availability, history and ratings. Jitjatjo helps ease the arduous and time-consuming task of hiring additional staffing support by completing many of the human resources requirements, including interviews, background checks, tax forms, performance reviews, timekeeping and payroll, allowing managers to focus on their business and its customers.
For talent, Jitjatjo helps individuals boost their income by finding extra shifts that fit within the flexibility of their current schedules. Workers just need to apply once and when registered, they’ll have the ability to select their availability to work. The service will then match workers with gigs based on their experience and preferences. Upon completion of the shift, Jitjatjo talent can get paid within hours through their debit card or can receive the funds through ACH into their bank account.
