AWARD STAFFING DELIVERS REAL-TIME RECRUITING VIA TEMPBUDDY WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT PLATFORM AND APP.
TempBuddy brings speed and accuracy to job order distribution, worker application and timecards for first US client, Award Staffing
12 SEPTEMBER, 2017: Award Staffing, light industrial, clerical, hospitality, technical and scientific staffing specialists based in Minneapolis, USA, has selected Ireland based TempBuddy’s multi-award winning workforce management platform and worker app to drive efficiency in their business, becoming the first US based business to offer recruitment services empowered by the software.
Award Staffing were looking for a solution to streamline the time-consuming manual tasks of managing a high volume of job assignments across the hospitality and professional side of their business, including the distribution of job orders, candidate applications and paper timecards.
Using the management platform, Award Staffing will be able to instantly share job details with their workers through the TempBuddy app at the click of a button, and workers can notify Award Staffing of their interest and availability, enabling Award Staffing to quickly progress hires, improving their speed-to-fill. The mobile check-in and check-out functionality of the worker app eradicates the need for employers and employees to complete, scan and send paper timecards.
Award Staffing had been reviewing software solutions for some time and made the decision to partner with TempBuddy after Vice President of Strategic Solutions Jerome Gerber, attended the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) Executive Forum North America event.
Meeting TempBuddy and seeing their workforce management platform and worker app in action, Gerber was excited to find the technology exceeded their vision, enabling them to deploy their best rated workers, manage shift patterns and eradicate paper timecards.
Nicole Berg, Marketing & Technology Manager, Award Staffing, said: “Before we implemented TempBuddy we had to call every single one of our employees to find out if they were interested in a new job opening, and, throughout assignments we were dealing with lots of paper timecards. Now, with TempBuddy, extensive manual work is replaced with the click of a button, freeing consultants for business development and candidate engagement activities. Our clients are impressed because they receive information faster and can see everything in real-time; our employees like it because they can easily apply for job openings; and we like it because it’s clearly improving processes and efficiency. We love being ahead of the curve on technology and it’s great to offer an enhanced candidate and client experience thanks to TempBuddy’s innovation.”
Roderick Smyth, CEO, TempBuddy, added: “Award Staffing has a fantastic reputation due to the reliable staffing services they have been delivering across the Twin Cities for over three decades, not to mention how they take the lead when it comes to adopting and embracing technology. So we’re delighted they’re our first client to go live in the United States. We look forward to supporting their continued growth.”
As the first TempBuddy client to go live in the USA, Award Staffing are uniquely positioned to offer their clients and workers staffing services underpinned by technology that is already revolutionising the recruitment industry across the UK and Europe.
Following their early adoption of TempBuddy for hospitality and professional staffing, Award Staffing soon plan to implement the technology across their commercial and industrial sectors.
Founded in 1988, Award Staffing is one of the largest locally-owned staffing companies in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, USA. Delivering services through two specialised companies, Award Commercial Services (ACS) and Award Professional Services (APS), they operate from six office locations across the Twin Cities metro area.

SaaS contingency workforce software firm named European Social StartUp 2016 for its game-changing staffing software and worker app.
DUBLIN – 13th June 2017 – TempBuddy, contingent workforce software innovator, is named the best European Social StartUp at the StartUp Europe Awards 2016.
The StartUp Europe Awards (SEUA) are promoted by the European Commission, supported by the President of the Committee of the Regions, several members of the European Parliament and implemented by Finnova Foundation in collaboration with Startup Europe. The goal is to recognise the effort of European startups in ten categories including social, with each member country providing one startup winner per category to represent them at the European final. In total 84 startups from 14 countries contested across the ten categories. The award winners are set to become inspirational examples for new generations with a positive impact on changing the entrepreneurship culture in Europe.
Having won the Bank of Ireland Tech StartUp Award last year, TempBuddy was selected to represent Ireland in the StartUp Europe Awards, beating the other finalists to be recognised as best European StartUp in the social category. The SEUA recognises social innovation as the development and implementation of new ideas to meet social needs. By using the mobile devices we already have in our pockets, TempBuddy simplifies the entire recruitment process helping staffing agencies to improve productivity and achieve growth whilst improving the candidate and client experience.
Upon receiving the award from Michel Servoz, Director of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, last night in Brussels Roderick Smyth, CEO and Founder of TempBuddy, commented: “I am so proud to be honoured with this truly significant award on behalf of the entire team who have brought TempBuddy from concept to a multi-award winning reality. Our vision is to make life easier for the flexible workforce, helping more people find temporary work when and where they want. By enabling staffing organisations and hiring managers to “uberise” their candidate database through real-time availability, we help to them compete in the on-demand economy without sacrificing workers’ employment rights.”
Michel Servoz, Director of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion said: “Stimulating innovation, entrepreneurship and the knowledge-based society is at the core of the Europe 2020 Strategy. TempBuddy was chosen as the best European Social StartUp for their innovative technology that empowers the worker. Their purpose and technology is completely aligned with why Social StartUp Europe Awards were conceived – to recognise the work of startups trying to make this world a better place to live and work.”
The awards were delivered by the President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani; the Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Mr. Carlos Moedas; the Vice-President of the Committee of the Regions, Karl-Heinz Lambert; the Vice-President for Communication of the European Economic and Social Committee, Gonçalo Lobo Xavier and the DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Mr. Michel Servoz.
TempBuddy’s game-changing software has already scooped six industry awards and has been adopted by users in over 1500 cities across 3 continents. The recruiter platform integrates real-time availability, scheduling, deployment, time capture, pay and bill and compliance linked to a worker mobile app and employer portal.
Mairead McGuinness, Vice President of the European Parliament said, “It is fantastic to see an Irish StartUp being recognised on the European stage for their hard work and technological innovation. Ireland has a lot to offer the European marketplace and, with the backing of the StartUp Europe Accelerator of Finnova Foundation, Roderick and the TempBuddy team will have access to a highly experienced network helping them expand even further internationally. This is great news for TempBuddy and for Ireland’s participation in the European and international marketplace.”
