COVID-19 Staffing: We’re here to help

Jenay Sellers | Mar 31, 2020

It’s been an interesting few weeks, to say the least. The coronavirus has forced us to adapt to new ways of working. Our entire team has been fortunate enough to complete all of their tasks by working from home. Shifting an entire company from a traditional model to a remote one has been rewarding. We’ve remained productive while finding new ways to collaborate as we face these uncertain times.

Thank you essential Workers

As the economic position of our country quickly changes, we’re rapidly evolving to ensure GigSmart continues to provide the best possible staffing solutions. As a result, we aim to be a resource for the essential businesses that need us most. We understand the importance of maintaining the supply chain, and we know how crucial it is to make sure the supply chain remains fully staffed. We also greatly appreciate every brave person who is serving our essential businesses during this difficult time. Thank you to our warehouse workers, grocery store associates, truck drivers, delivery drivers, healthcare professionals, caregivers, parents, and all of the other workers who are facing coronavirus head-on. We appreciate you.

  • Free Gig Posts: Create free Gig posts to start sourcing Workers in seconds. Review applications and choose who you want to hire in minutes, and get them to your job site within the hour.
  • Insured Workers: All Workers hired through our platform are protected by Occupational Accident Insurance, which protects you from potential liability in the event a Worker you hire is injured while working your Gig.
  • Workers with Background Checks: Hire Workers with optional Worker background and motor vehicle records (MVR) checks. You can choose whether or not you want to require one or both of these checks as a pre-requisite to working your Gig.

We’ve recently launched some new enhancements. Now you can:

  • Search for specific Workers: Repeat users can create Invite Only Gigs to search for and invite their favorite Workers.
  • Confirm Workers prior to hiring them: To reduce no-shows and cancellations, Workers will be required to reconfirm their availability prior to being hired to work your shift.
