We didn’t want to bid adieu to 2016 without sharing some of Shiftgig’s greatest moments from the year - it has certainly been a busy one for us.
In 2016 we opened four new Shiftgig offices!
We now call Tampa, Milwaukee, New Orleans and Nashville home sweet home, bringing our total number of markets up to 13. Learn more about our Milwaukee office here in this Q&A with Laura, our general manager there.
Blogging In this space is new to us this year, as we launched our business blog in July.
It has been fun to have a new outlet to share more about ourselves, our customers’ successes and the industry as a whole.
In September, we moved!
We started as a company of 20 employees when we originally moved into 225 W. Hubbard Ave. Nearly three years and 150+ employees later, we moved on up - literally - to the Penthouse atop 550 W. Jackson. Chicago will always be home, and we’re enjoying exploring a new side of this great city.
Just a few shorts weeks later, we announced that Shiftgig had acquired BookedOut...
a logistics platform connecting brand ambassadors to experiential marketing agencies and brands. Our teams settled in nicely together in our new space and we’re off to a great start.
Last but not least, Shiftgig hit a major milestone when Specialist Pavida Chaweevong worked the company’s 250,000th shift...
(her 119th), at Citi Field in New York. Learn more about Pavida’s inspiring story here.
We have so much to celebrate and can’t wait to see what the new year brings for our company, clients and Specialists. We look forward to continuing to connect with you on the blog in 2017 and wish you a happy holiday season with your family and friends.
