In today’s world of work, businesses dependent on part-time labor are facing a major “people problem” – they can’t seem to find enough workers. Traditional methods of attracting and retaining employees have lost efficacy, and employers are struggling to adapt on their own to the changing job market landscape.
According to studies, 94% of consumers look for local information on their smartphones, and 90% of those audiences take action as a result. This is where today’s part-time worker lives and is fully engaged. By meeting workers where they are, ShiftPixy is at their fingertips and uniquely adapted to filter part-time opportunities directly to this workforce, introducing them to suitable work opportunities and moving them through a start-work process that is simple, personal, and friction-free.
“Today’s part-time worker is smartphone addicted, and we understand that to solve the new ‘people problem’ we need to meet them where they are,” said Scott Absher, Co-Founder and CEO of ShiftPixy. “The ShiftPixy Fast Fill technology allows us to do just that, and we are excited to bring this innovative solution to our clients. ShiftPixy’s Fast Fill technology streamlines the process of finding, hiring and onboarding the right candidates, allowing businesses to focus on growing their bottom line.”
“Traditional methods of attracting and retaining employees are no longer effective,” continued Absher. “If you are trying to solve the new people problem with the same old tools, you will be disappointed. ShiftPixy’s Fast Fill technology offers a solution that is innovative, effective, and meets the needs of the modern workforce.”
ShiftPixy is committed to providing its clients with the tools they need to succeed in today’s competitive and dynamic job market. With its new Fast Fill technology, the Company is leading the way in connecting businesses with the new part-time worker and helping them to thrive in an ever-changing landscape.
