Shiftgig, the professional networking and employment community for the hospitality industry, announced it has added industry deals to its website.

The free feature enables restaurants and nightclubs to create and advertise special offers to more than 150,000 industry workers to improve business during off-times.

"The service industry is by nature a socially active group with a work-hard-play-hard mentality," says Eddie Lou, CEO of Shiftgig. "Aggregating industry deals in one location provides free advertising for businesses to the many industry workers who are looking for entertainment when they are off the clock, which typically coincides with the slow days within the industry where they work."

Industry deals can range in value from reduced prices on drinks and appetizers to half off an entire check at some locations. No matter what is offered, providing discounts for industry workers shows appreciation for their hard work and provides a boost to business at an otherwise slow time.
