LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) APRIL 14, 2020
WorkTaps, the mobile-first employee referral solution for the hourly and deskless workforces, announced today that it will offer its hiring software to businesses at no cost in response to the COVID-19 crisis. WorkTaps offers a simple way for employees to tap their personal networks and enable a seamless and rapid recruiting machine. With mobile-first, tap-to-share communication, WorkTaps drives quality applicants faster than ever before. On average, businesses receive applicants within hours of sharing a job and hire within a matter of days.
WorkTaps will be provided for free through August 15, 2020 to help fill recruiting pipelines and get displaced workers from industries hit hardest, such as hotels, restaurants and non-essential retail, back into the workforce.
“With U.S. unemployment claims currently at a record 16 million and projected to increase dramatically, we’re furthering our mission to quickly connect and create hires for hourly workers and the businesses that urgently need them,” said Bradley Harris, CEO and Co-Founder of WorkTaps. “From healthcare and assisted living to grocery stores, delivery services and essential retailers, maintaining the frontline workforce is critical to keeping our communities and economy alive.”
WorkTaps mobilizes recruitment efforts more effectively than traditional hiring platforms by cutting through cumbersome application and screening processes or the oversaturated and competitive talent pools found through job boards. Prior to the pandemic, WorkTaps users experienced on average 65 percent conversion from applicant to interview rates and within that last month, have seen an increase to over 70 percent.
“Having passionate and qualified associates directly impacts the level of care we provide to our residents,” said David Hope, Kisco Senior Living, head of HR and Talent Acquisition. “WorkTaps reduces the time it takes to hire through our associates’ networks that connects us with great candidates, allowing us to focus on the health of our communities during this critical time.”
“We’ve been using WorkTaps in a few locations and since the pandemic hit the U.S., have extended the platform across our entire organization,” said Dr. Tommy Comer, chief human resource officer at Commonwealth Senior Living. “WorkTaps is an essential resource for talent acquisition by bringing in a constant flow of qualified applicants directly from our most trusted resource – our own employees.”
With a “gamified” user experience, WorkTaps encourages a fun and engaging way to earn money through referrals while incentivizing teams to recruit within their most trusted networks, such as former employees or teams, friends and family. WorkTaps also provides employers visibility into their entire referral program with unique insights on employee engagements such as the source of hires, number of applicants interested, shares, views and more.
WorkTaps is available now to get businesses up and running within hours and for free. To learn more about WorkTaps visit worktaps.com or to schedule a demo visit worktaps.com/demo.
