|Note 1: Nature of Operations
ShiftPixy, Inc. (the Company) was incorporated in the State of Wyoming on June 3, 2015. The Company is a specialized staffing and human capital management service provider that provides solutions for large contingent part-time workforce demands, primarily in the restaurant, hospitality and maintenance service trades. The Companys initial focus is on the restaurant industry in Southern California.
Shift Human Capital Management Inc. (SHCM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ShiftPixy, Inc., is incorporated in the State of Wyoming. SHCM functions substantially as a professional employer organization (PEO) and provides comprehensive human resources solutions under our co-employment model. SHCM assumes certain of the responsibilities of being an employer and helps its clients mitigate employer-related risks and manage many of the complex and burdensome administrative and compliance responsibilities associated with employment. SHCM also functions as an-administrative-services only ("ASO") provider, in response to client needs for only administrative and processing services, performing functions in the nature of a payroll processor, human resources consultant, administrator of workers compensation coverages and claims, under circumstances wherein the client remains as the sole employer of the subject employees. These services are also available to businesses in all industries, not limited to the restaurant and hospitality industries. The Company hopes that this mechanism may become a way to onboard new clients into the ShiftPixy Ecosystem when eligible clients to whom the Company is providing these services recognize the value of the services provided by the parent Company.
The Company is currently operating in one reportable segment.
