Boston, MA – October 3, 2018 – Erecruit™, the leading global technology provider and visionary for the staffing industry, today announced Kimco Staffing Services, Inc., one of the largest independent staffing firms in the United States, has selected to deploy its multi-award winning workforce management platform and mobile worker app, TempBuddy, to drive efficiency in their high volume staffing business.
With skills shortages at an all-time high, it is critical for today’s largest staffing firms to leverage the right tools to attract and retain the best talent. TempBuddy is designed to help temporary staffing and recruiting companies get their best people to the right place in record time, paid promptly and accurately using smart mobile technology. TempBuddy provides temporary employees an “Uber-like”, simple mobile experience to indicate their availability, review and accept assignments, clock in and out and more.
Kimco Staffing Services chose TempBuddy for its simple worker mobile experience and ability to streamline high volume, shift-based assignment and scheduling needs.
“Kimco is thrilled to further our partnership with Erecruit by deploying TempBuddy,” said Lisa Pierson, President, Kimco Staffing Services. “TempBuddy will allow us to focus on what matters most by eliminating many time-consuming administrative tasks while providing a modern mobile experience for our temporary workforce. We expect to enhance candidate loyalty and retention and win new business with TempBuddy.”
“The gig economy is revolutionizing the staffing industry and technology is serving as the catalyst of its growth,” said Roderick Smyth, Founder & CEO, TempBuddy, and Chief Strategy Officer, Erecruit. “Our TempBuddy users have found that not only does the app deliver a great candidate experience, a recruiter can make more placements than with the traditional process. Simply put, this means more margin.”
TempBuddy recently announced that on average 75% workers placed through the app are redeployed, compared to an industry average of 40% as reported by Staffing Industry Analysts.
For those wanting to see TempBuddy in action this fall, Erecruit is exhibiting in the UK at RecExpo Birmingham on Oct 3-4 and at SIA’s Executive Forum Europe in London on Nov 27-28 and in the US at SIA’s Collaboration in the Gig Economy in Dallas, TX on Oct 4-5, ASA’s Staffing World in Washington, DC on Oct 16-18 and at SIA’s Healthcare Staffing Summit in Denver, CO on Nov 5-7.
