GattiHR Selected by Rapid-Trace to Recruit COVID-19 Contact Tracers for The University of Tampa

GattiHR to use its TalentBoost™ cloud platform to source, recruit and assess Contact Tracers

QUINCY, MA, July 16, 2020 – GattiHR, a leading HR consulting firm, has been retained by Rapid-Trace – a contact tracing company dedicated to tracing and contacting individuals who have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19– to recruit COVID-19 Contact Tracers for The University of Tampa.

GattiHR is now supporting 3 of the largest contact tracing initiatives in the country: the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; Fairfax County, VA; and The University of Tampa. GattiHR is also actively in discussion with a number of other academic institutions to develop a contact tracing collaborative for all participating schools.

By tracing the physical contacts of COVID-19 infected people, public health aims to reduce COVID-19 infections. GattiHR is using its proprietary platform, TalentBoost™, to source, recruit and assess the 400 Contact Tracers. TalentBoost™ has been specifically built by GattiHR to support high-volume, high-velocity staffing and training initiatives.

“Contact tracing is a recognized and effective strategy for ‘flattening the curve’ in a pandemic,” said GattiHR CEO Tom Connolly.  “It’s painstaking, tedious, investigatively-intensive work, requiring excellent communication skills.  Contact tracers must be empathetic and compassionate, but they must also be incredibly thorough, perseverant and clinically dispassionate.

GattiHR has established a dedicated a dedicated email inbox — HelpUsHelp@GattiHR.com — to encourage the HR community to provide information on individual candidates or groups of individuals who may be a good fit. All suggested candidates will be reviewed and followed up on by GattiHR.
