INDIANAPOLIS, IN (May 14, 2019) -- LGC Hospitality, the leading national hospitality staffing agency, today announced the launch of their staffing solution, LGC Now. LGC Now is a staffing engagement tool that provides LGC employees an opportunity to secure flexible employment based upon their schedule, while providing clients with the chance to obtain qualified talent when they need it.
Recently LGC Hospitality acquired 12 staffing business markets from Shiftgig, a former staffing company pivoting to a software-centric approach. Included in the acquisition is the licensing of Shiftgig’s flagship software, Deploy, a technology platform focused on redeploying and engaging workers. Since its inception in 2003, LGC Hospitality has taken a traditional approach to staffing its’ 30+ cities across the country. With the transition of these markets and the introduction of Deploy, LGC Hospitality launched LGC Now; a technology driven vertical focused on growing and expanding their business by removing the time-consuming administrative tasks commonly found in staffing.
“We believe LGC Now, coupled with our knowledgeable and accountable service model, will propel LGC’s reach like never before and allow development of smaller markets not typically associated with hospitality staffing,” says George Lessmeister, CEO and Founder of LGC Hospitality. “LGC workers will enjoy an easier onboarding process and prompt notifications of open assignments fitting the flexible work schedule many require in today’s market.”
This is an exciting step for the future of LGC Hospitality, which has been operating for over 15 years. On the future of his company and the implementation of this new technology, Lessmeister says “LGC Now establishes LGC in the vibrant and expanding “Gig Economy”, and represents a milestone for us in future expansion of the LGC staffing product.”
LGC Hospitality has taken on nearly 28,000 workers and over 100 clients, now operating under LGC Now. Throughout the rest of 2019, LGC plans to focus on growing their recently acquired business as well as beginning the transition of LGC Hospitality clients and workers to the new technology.
LGC will be at the 2019 National Restaurant Association Show. Go to booth 9752 in the Lakeside Center to learn more about LGC Hospitality and LGC Now.
