When I Work, a scheduling app for the hourly workforce, is launching a new product, Hire. Serving small and medium-sized businesses that employ hourly workers, Hire takes hiring and on-boarding mobile. The service is predicted to be released in time for workplaces to use during the holiday hiring season.
“We’ve watched the global hourly workforce hit the digital tipping point,” said Chad Halvorson, CEO of When I Work. “We know that workers value the efficiency and convenience of mobile-first application processes, which the largest employers can afford to custom-build. Hire will put a streamlined digital applicant tracking process in the hands of the same businesses that use When I Work—small and medium-sized enterprises.”
“When the job market is tight, we know that hourly job-seekers have their choice of positions,” said Halvorson. “One deciding factor? Speed. They accept the offers with the earliest available starting shifts. Using Hire will help our customers fill their open positions as fast as possible—before the pool of applicants dries up.”
Hourly employers can use Hire to create and share job postings, manage candidate screening and hire employees all in one place. The software will also allow teams to collaborate and leave notes as they evaluate candidates and move applicants through the hiring process. New employees are automatically added to the When I Work schedule.
