Forge Technologies to Launch Talent Sharing Network at Mall of America®

Sponsored by Businesswire

Today, Forge (Forge Technologies Inc.) is announcing a partnership with
Mall of America®,the nation’s largest retail
destination, to launch an innovative talent sharing network.

Forge offers a talent sharing software that enables businesses in close
geographic proximity to share part-time labor. Businesses give their
employees, who may be looking for additional hours, an option to join
the network. In exchange, businesses may interview, hire and train other
employees from nearby businesses who are non-competitive in the network
and looking for more hours. Once hired, Forge’s flexible scheduling
platform can ensure employees are never double-booked for shifts across
their multiple jobs. Forge is proven to increase operational
efficiencies, decrease time-to-hire and increase the earnings potential
of employees within a community.

Stacey Ferreira, CEO of Forge, says, “As we continue to launch Forge’s
talent sharing network in communities across the United States, we’re
excited to partner with Mall of America as the newest and largest mall
spearheading this initiative to benefit their tenants and employees.”

Welcoming more than 40 million annual visitors, Mall of America is one
of the top tourist destinations in the country. Home to more than 520
retail shops and restaurants, the mall – and its tenants – employ over
12,000 team members. Working together, Forge and Mall of America hope to
create the largest talent sharing network in the United States to ensure
mall tenants never struggle for quality talent and to give their
employees an opportunity to increase their earning potential.

“As the retail industry continues to change and face unique challenges
it’s important that we take the lead in finding creative solutions,”
Mall of America Executive Vice President of Operations, Rich Hoge says,
“We understand that our retailers may struggle to find quality talent
and at the same time the very best employees continue to search for ways
to earn additional income. Forge’s talent sharing network is the ideal
solution for our tenants and employees in the mall.”

Businesses and employees outside of the mall also have the opportunity
to download the Forge Technologies app to sign up and join the abundant
talent sharing network.
