TrueBlue Inks Strategic Relationship with Uber Works

TrueBlue (NYSE: TBI) has announced that it has entered into a new business relationship with Uber Works, Inc., a subsidiary of Uber Technologies, Inc., to bring more resources to workers, the company said.

Uber Works is a platform that connects workers with businesses that need to fill available shifts. TrueBlue created a new business venture called PeopleWorks to serve as an employer and payroll service provider for workers booking jobs on the Uber Works app. PeopleWorks´ tech-powered back office takes care of the employees´ needs throughout the employment lifecycle, including same-day pay.

In 2017, TrueBlue introduced its JobStack platform to connect companies with on-demand, temporary and seasonal staff 24/7. JobStack, which is supporting nearly 17,000 clients, fills a job every nine seconds. JobStack will remain separate and distinct from this new Uber Works relationship.

TrueBlue (NYSE: TBI) is a global provider of specialized workforce solutions that help clients achieve business growth and improve productivity. In 2018, the company connected approximately 730,000 people with work. TrueBlue´s PeopleReady segment offers on-demand industrial staffing services, PeopleManagement offers contingent and productivity-based, on-site industrial staffing services, and PeopleScout offers recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and managed service provider (MSP) solutions to a wide variety of industries.
