Your PAL Pro Inc., an on-demand personal assistant for living (PAL) concierge business, announced it is expanding in Springfield, Missouri. The company expects to add more than 175 new jobs over the next several years.
“Your PAL Pro is bringing new jobs to Springfield and because of that, more Missourians are working,” said Rob Dixon, Acting Director of Economic Development. “Our state is proud of startup businesses who want to find success in their communities. I look forward to seeing their company grow here.”
Your PAL Pro was created to help older adults and busy individuals live life easier and give skilled professionals a flexible income source. This is possible by the company providing transport, helping with tasks, information gathering and referral services.
“As a health care professional working with older adults and my own parent, I noticed two things,” said Dr. Dee Telting, CEO of Your PAL Pro Inc. “The first was that many older adults are able to live independently but need assistance with a few tasks; they just don’t need it all the time. This service did not exist from one source, on demand or from vetted professionals. The second thing I noticed was that many highly-skilled health care and other professionals are not guaranteed 40-hour work weeks anymore and a second job is highly unlikely to pay an appropriate wage for their skills or be flexible enough to meet their ever changing schedule. So we developed a model that allows our clients and the PALs an on demand solution that makes all lives better and easier as a result.”
Missouri is home to some of the most prestigious hospitals, medical schools, and health companies in the world. 40 Missouri colleges and universities offer bachelor’s degrees or higher in biological or biomedical sciences.
