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.
