Gale United Launches Springboard; Digital Marketplace To Help Meet Labor Shortage

·3-min read

New subsidiary leverages innovative tech model that has driven massive healthcare service success

TAMPA, Fla., May 17, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gale United (Gale), the parent company of Gale Healthcare Solutions, today announced the launch of Springboard, a new subsidiary focused on supporting the non-clinical workforce needs of healthcare clients as well as other sectors with supplemental staffing needs. Along with healthcare facilities, Springboard will serve the hospitality and light industrial sectors.

Based on the success of Gale Healthcare’s technology and business model, Springboard offers an app-based digital staffing marketplace to connect temporary workers to flexible work opportunities and daily pay.

"Since experiencing the power of our technology, Gale Healthcare clients have repeatedly asked about similar staffing and payment services for non-clinical positions," said Aaron Littles, Gale Chief Operating Officer. "Springboard allows us to respond quickly with the additional support they need, providing a complete staffing solution while also serving an even larger universe of companies that depend on supplemental staff."

Along with Gale technology, Springboard addresses growing worker interest in flexible work options and immediate access to earned wages. According to a recent MBO Partners study, 52% of the US workforce will either be gig economy workers or will have worked in the gig economy at some point by 2023. In addition, a 2021 Harris Poll found that 83% of workers believe they should have immediate access to their pay at the end of each workday or shift.

Based on a deep understanding of healthcare facility needs, Springboard will offer healthcare clients workers for dietary, housekeeping, and other non-clinical positions. Springboard will also serve other sectors that are impacted by current labor shortages.

Companies that use Springboard will gain access to a diverse pool of vetted temporary workers and a proven on-demand staffing and worker payment platform. Individuals who sign up with Springboard will be able to create a professional profile, find available jobs in their area, accept the jobs they want, and receive same-day pay for the shifts they complete.
