Seasonality The company’s business experiences seasonal fluctuations for staffing services. Demand is lower during the first and second quarters (year ended December 26, 2014), in part due to limitations to outside work during the winter months and slowdown in manufacturing and logistics after the holiday season. Demand for contingent labor peaks during the third quarter for outdoor work and the fourth quarter for manufacturing and logistics for the holiday season. History The company was founded in 1985. It began its operations in 1989. The company was formerly known as Labor Ready, Inc. and changed its name to TrueBlue, Inc. in 2007.
