Media Advisory: TrueBlue COO Patrick Beharelle Available to Discuss Effort to Immediately Hire 2,000 Workers for Houston Recovery Effort, Preparedness Plans for Hurricane Irma


TrueBlue (NYSE: TBI):


Patrick Beharelle, president and chief operating officer, TrueBlue.


TrueBlue’s PeopleReady brand is hiring 2,000 people in the Houston area for clients to help in the recovery effort. Beharelle can provide context on this recovery operation compared with others the company has aided, including Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy. Beharelle can address:

  • How the company is mobilizing workers around Houston for debris/damage removal as well as construction activity during rebuilding. In addition to rebuilding the community, these jobs are a valuable option for residents who have been displaced from their work due to the storm and floods;
  • How the company is making it easier for people to sign up for work. Once registered, workers can use the company’s JobStack mobile app to search for jobs without having to go to a branch office;
  • What the company is doing to prepare for Hurricane Irma, which is projected to strike Florida later this week.


Patrick is currently at TrueBlue’s support centers in Chicago, Ill. or can travel to a Chicago studio.
