Lever, an Employ Inc. brand and a leading talent acquisition platform, announces today the release of Candidate Texting, a new SMS tool designed to streamline candidate communication and improve engagement for talent teams.
This new tool is designed to help recruiting teams efficiently manage their candidate pipelines and overcome common communication challenges in talent acquisition, including improving response rates, and overall time-to-hire. By leveraging Candidate Texting, recruiters can automate time-consuming candidate outreach, improving the jobseeker experience and allowing hiring teams to get in front of top talent before the competition.
WorkWhile, the worker-first labor marketplace connecting businesses with a reliable hourly workforce, today announced the expansion of its offerings to the hospitality and events services sectors. WorkWhile is now ready to fill in-demand open roles in concessions, event services, food services, and other hospitality industries.
“Our worker-first mindset drives everything we do at WorkWhile. By expanding into the hospitality industry, we are responding to the strong demand from our workers who have experience in these jobs. Hospitality and events face chronic staffing shortages—making these industries the natural next steps in our evolution” said Jarah Euston, CEO and Co-founder of WorkWhile.
To better support the complexities of hospitality and events work, WorkWhile also launched an AI-powered shift onboarding process that screens and prepares workers for their shifts—resulting in higher fill rates and quality for business partners. Workers, in turn, receive additional information to ensure that they have what they need to be successful. This new process captures all the critical details required for shifts in hospitality, such as certifications, permits, or even dress codes, and prepares workers before clocking in. It’s a win-win for businesses and workers alike.
One of WorkWhile’s early partnerships with a premier event services provider has yielded remarkable success. Previous experience with contingent labor providers led the customer to request more workers than needed due to expected no-shows. When WorkWhile quickly achieved 100% fill rates with minimal no-shows, the customer was happily overstaffed. At the event, WorkWhile workers provided outstanding, high-quality service that was indistinguishable from the customer’s own staff.
Jarah Euston added, “Our expansion into the hospitality and events sectors represents an exciting new chapter for WorkWhile and for our workers.”
