We emphasize fairness and data-driven dependability, ensuring confidence not only between facilities and professionals, but between ShiftKey and its users.

Stability in business and balance in the lives of professionals translates to increased productivity, better mental health and a positive relationship with work.

We provide licensed professionals and facilities with enough options to make qualified decisions and exert more independence via modern, efficient technology.

Our platform leverages advanced but accessible technology to provide complete visibility and transparency, and to eliminate costly red tape.

By uniting facilities and professionals in a single community, we transform an adversarial relationship into one of understanding and mutual respect.

Where We Started

In 2016, Tom Ellis introduced an alternative to outdated scheduling practices and costly staffing agencies. With ShiftKey, Tom and his innovative team put decision-making into the hands of facilities and independent professionals, connecting them directly in a true digital marketplace, and making a profound human impact.
