The 804 Building in downtown Dayton, OH, located just minutes from major throughways like the I75, I35, and Route 4, has greatly expanded its roster of resident businesses over the last few months, including the addition of tech venture Upshift, which helps businesses fill contingent labor needs while providing skilled workers with the opportunity to pick up shifts on their schedule. Upshift’s innovative approach to serving the community and improving the lives of employees and clients is completely in line with the mission of The 804 owners, Jeff Mohlman and Doug Eastham, who are intent on creating a nurturing environment for growing businesses and modern professionals in the downtown area.
The 804 has been reimagined, morphing from a one-time industrial warehouse into a thriving business center that features resident businesses as diverse as indoor storage, real estate, financial services, and social spaces, including a restaurant, coffee shop, bar, and club. The 804 also offers unique and dynamic meeting and event spaces that are perfect for corporate training or off-site meetings, club meetings, support groups, and more, thanks to the social-professional atmosphere, the modern-vintage ambience, and options to customize spaces to suit the needs of every business and event.
The 804 is all about preserving the beautiful architecture and heritage of downtown Dayton, while updating and improving to serve the modern community and keep pace with growth in nearby areas like Tech Town and Waterstreet. The addition of Upshift to The 804 family in April is just one piece of the puzzle, and this innovative tech company (formerly Pinch, rebranded as Upshift in July 2016) is another part of the evolution taking place.
Upshift’s mobile app allows workers to create profiles that act as a resume of sorts and post their availability for work shifts. As they take on jobs, they can build their reputation, add education and experience, and improve their ability to nab coveted shifts with desirable employers. On the business side, Upshift lets companies post available shifts and find suitable workers. Upshift handles hiring and vetting workers, as well as all HR concerns, so all businesses have to do is click a button to find needed labor. Upshift is committed to connecting businesses and workers in mutually beneficial ways and making everyone’s life a little easier in the process.
The 804 is proud to add Upshift to its growing family of innovative and community-minded resident businesses, all helping to create a unique and inviting atmosphere in the thriving downtown area.
About The 804: The 804 Building started as a warehouse that co-owners Jeffrey Mohlman and Doug Eastham intended to transform into a storage facility. With the growth of nearby Tech Town, however, they realized the potential to create a unique business center and event venue. Today, The 804 tenants include financial groups, food services, and real estate offices, among others, and the venue provides off-site meeting spaces catering to all levels of businesses and events.
