NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AllWork, a platform that connects freelancer talent with brands and retailers, launched today with the goal of transforming the retail industry as it moves to an on-demand staffing model.
An incredible one-third of the US workforce is comprised of freelancers, and it is predicted by an Intuit study that 40% will be freelancers by 2020. This shift, in particular among Millenials, has triggered a huge change in today's workforce and employers must adapt.
"To win at retail today, smart brands and retailers are creating in-store experiences that customers can't get online. This requires putting the right person in the right store at the right time. Our platform helps our clients accomplish that goal," says AllWork's CEO Glenn Laumeister.
Companies need to find talent that is very specific to their needs, quickly deploy them into retail locations, and then motivate and manage them. Imagine a company being able to fill an open retail position with the same efficiency of calling an Uber.
"The business was created out of a personal need," says AllWork Chairman Scott Gurfein. "I was spending over $300K per month on in-store talent to drive sales for my brand, and I had no way to measure the ROI to guide my spending. I was also exposed to huge liabilities trying to comply with varying labor laws."
According to a recent PwC study, over $800B in wages are paid out every year in the US retail industry, and yet no technology platform exists to help brands and retailers leverage this new flexible workforce.
AllWork empowers businesses with an end-to-end solution for the management of recruiting, scheduling, training, communications, payments, reporting, and HR administration.
"Shifting behaviors and preferences of millennials don't align with current sourcing and management methods," says AllWork CEO, Glenn Laumeister. "We provide freelancers and employers a better way to connect in today's changing job market."
