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

QUINCY, MA, June 1, 2020 – GattiHR, a leading HR consulting firm, has been retained by the Institute for Public Health Innovation – one of the region’s leading health organizations that develops multi-sector partnerships and innovative solutions to improve the public’s health and well-being across Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia– to recruit 400 COVID-19 Contact Tracers in Fairfax County, VA. Contact Tracers identify individuals who may have come in physical contact with a COVID-19-infected person and then collect further information about these contacts.

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.”

“We’re reaching out to the HR community asking for your ideas and support with this initiative. We need to have this cohort in place as soon as possible,” he said.
