SAN FRANCISCO - NOVEMBER 23 - Deputy, the leading shift work software solution, has today announced as part of its 2021-2022 official partnership with the San Jose Sharks that it will be shining a light on shift workers and small business owners in the community as part of its upcoming game day sweepstakes activations.

“Community sits at the heart of everything that we do at Deputy,” says the organization's recently appointed SVP of Global Marketing, Brett Chester. “At any given home stadium game the demographic of the live crowd reflects that of our own Deputy customers and end users.

I see Deputy being able to make a real impact within the NHL community and fan base as they continue to rebuild and recover post-pandemic.”

The Share a Shift with S.J. Sharkie Sweepstakes will run from November 22 through to December 6. Four winners will receive a visit from Sharks mascot ‘S.J. Sharkie’ who will be on-hand to capture the work they do and highlight their personal story.

They will also win six months of free access to the Deputy premium plan for their workplace and sit down for an interview with our Deputy communications team, to be published in Forbes online early next year.
