Hello. My name is Tosh Cook, and I’m the founder of #gigRonin. In 1995 Amazon started a website selling books, and in 2019 they accounted for half of all retail sales in the United States. That’s a shocking number, which speaks to the efficiency of #platform marketplaces.
But even more shocking is that has taken 25 years for the fallout to reach the staffing industry. Ready or not, it’s here now. Let’s start by asking, what the heck is a platform?
That word gets thrown around heavily in the workforce management industry, and it can have a bunch of different meanings. In the case of staffing, a platform is a medium of producers and consumers come together over a handy app that facilitates the transaction in ways a traditional processes simply can’t.
If you own or manage of staffing company, it’s time to become familiar with this concept, especially in light of the news that indeed is entering the #staffing industry with an app-based offering called Indeed Flex.
They announced their entry point is light industrial staffing in Texas, but I’m sure they’re going to quickly scale up nationally. Uber also jumped into hospitality staffing under the Uber Works brand and jumped out do the pandemic.
That’s safe to say they’ll be back in the recovery, positioning themselves as a great alternative for venues and restaurants to meet the opportunity of pent-up demand.
The obvious question becomes how can small and midsize staffing agencies compete before the phone stops ringing? This is where gigRonin comes in. We help staffing agencies of all sizes adopt a mobile platform on their own terms. This benefits our clients by helping them win new business, retain existing clients and adds to recruiter efficiency.
We do all this by providing a fully branded app for worker deployment right in the Apple App or Google Play Store alongside the big competitors. If you’d like to know more or even just discuss the future of staffing, send me an email at email@example.com and let’s have a conversation.
I look forward to chatting with you soon.
