Shiftgig, a Chicago based company, focuses on empowering people to find local employment opportunities that fit their lifestyles, schedules, and career objectives. As a more actionable alternative to Linkedin, Shiftgig's mobile platform is a professional networking community that serves to bring on-demand hourly workers and employers together. The local workforce company also assists staffing firms and organizations in optimizing and repurposing their workforce by developing new skills and increasing retention while delivering powerful business agility.
New workers are constantly applying to staffing agencies who are Powered by Shiftgig. Shiftgig has a straightforward process for browsing and claiming available shifts; however, if a worker has a difficult time getting hired by a staffing agency, potential candidates become discouraged to continue further. Our partner wanted to ensure that the onboarding process with their staffing agency partners was simple, and more importantly, able to be done digitally instead of manual, in-person paperwork. With that initiative, Shifting wanted to integrate Deploy by Shiftgig into WorkBright, which is a digital employee onboarding solution. This integration would solve a key challenge for their clients - talent acquisition, especially in today's job market. By integrating these two platforms, the resulting product would make it easier to apply and get hired through digital channels. Agencies will attract more workers, especially those who are very savvy with technology like Millennials and Gen Z. From the worker perspective, Shiftgig wanted to make the process as frictionless as possible so that workers can apply with an agency in their industry, get hired, and start claiming shifts through the platform directly. They needed the integration done quickly, and with a team that deeply understands the business case to build something that will seamlessly integrate and scale with their business.
Spark Equation led the integration between two staffing solutions to enhance a powerful marketplace software platform that uses sophisticated algorithms to match workers with assignments based on their skills and expertise. The platform allows workers to select and build their schedules with increased flexibility while being encouraged to develop new skills and expand their opportunities for more assignments.
