With race day just around the corner for the first Indianapolis 500 without fans in the stands, PeopleReady is driving home its mission of connecting people and work with the millions of race fans viewing the event remotely from across the U.S. and around the globe. The staffing leader is the partner of one of Rahal Letterman Lanigan’s (RLL) star drivers, Takuma Sato (#30), who won the Indianapolis 500 in 2017. RLL is a premier racing team co-owned by Indy car racing legend Bobby Rahal, TV icon David Letterman and entrepreneur Michael Lanigan.
“PeopleReady is excited to make our debut at one of the largest and most talked-about sporting events of the year,” said Taryn Owen, President of PeopleReady. “We’re proud to be part of an experience that is safely bringing millions of people together to have fun during a difficult time when many have experienced job loss. By taking our brand center stage with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, we can engage race fans and their family members and let them know PeopleReady is here to help them find job opportunities in their communities.”
“As much of the nation, and so many race fans, face job losses and economic challenges, we’re excited to be partnering with PeopleReady, a leading company in helping people find the work they need during these crucial times,” said Bobby Rahal, co-owner of RLL. “PeopleReady has a long history of supporting businesses, workers and communities. We’re proud to have such a mission-driven company as a part of the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team and partner of Takuma Sato.”
PeopleReady has a variety of ways for job seekers to connect to job opportunities: via app (JobStack), online (www.peopleready.com/welcome), and in person (at all 600+ PeopleReady branches across the nation) with social distancing measures in place.
The Indianapolis 500 will take place on Sunday, Aug. 23, with live coverage beginning at 1pm ET on NBC.
