It’s clear that in order to optimize their staffing process, companies need to move to an on-demand staffing model. To do so, they need one cloud-based platform that will provide them with all of the resources they need in one place. By being able to tap into a vertically specific talent pool, hiring managers can find qualified talent fast while management software gives them the ability to schedule talent on-demand, manage their budgets, and process payroll — all in the same place.
On-demand staffing, the idea that companies can engage their staff only when they need them and where they need them, is poised for a breakout year in 2018, according to Glenn Laumeister, CEO of AllWork, a software and services platform that enables on-demand talent sourcing, management, and payment.
The gig economy may seem like it’s still among the latest financial trends, but in fact, it’s already starting to evolve into its next form: on-demand labor. AllWork, this Uber-of-X model has potential across every vertical that leverages an hours-based employment model.

If you are a brand owner or are responsible for sales, you’ve probably experienced it the hard way. Does this sound familiar? While reviewing sales by door you notice sales in a particular door plummet, and after a little digging you find out the person selling your brand and making the sales happen wasn’t there for the period in question. What follows is a scramble to find out why there was no coverage, or fill the position and stop the decline in sales.
If your retail business wants to keep up with growing presence of online, you can’t just put anyone in your store to sell, you need the right person representing your brand and your product in person. The only question is, where do you start to look for someone like this; the answer is AllWork.
