ShiftPixy, Inc. introduced its “Fast Fill” recruiting technology. Many quick service restaurants (QSRs) are finding themselves unable to fill open positions, often with “bench strength” weaker than ever. Fast Fill, which is being launched with a “Need Workers?” marketing campaign, is designed to directly reach available workers through mobile technology, encouraging them to immediately sign up for available QSR shifts.
Implementing the correct technology tools can augment HR’s efforts and provide modern benefits that appeal to employees, writes this Paylocity executive in this HT exclusive. Providing early access to earned wages is one way that many hotels and restaurants are helping smooth out cash flow issues that employees may face. Seven out of 10 of the country's largest quick-service restaurants offer a daily pay benefit.
ShiftPixy Co-Founder and CEO, Scott Absher said, “Today’s challenge of finding enough workers cannot be addressed with yesterday’s tools. The new QSR workforce can only be found by reaching the workers where they are, and the new ShiftPixy mobile technology meets them right where they live and socialize.
“We have been developing and testing our mobile engagement technology for several months, and we are thrilled with how effective it has proven to be, not only capturing the attention of interested staff, but also motivating them to start work. Our tests with many of our operator clients have proven our technology capable of quickly filling open positions, significantly faster than other currently available tools and tactics.”
In related news, ShiftPixy has done some hiring of its own. The Miami-based company has named Rodney Diekema as Chief Sales Officer for the Company’s QSR markets, and Eduardo J. Dominguez as Chief Sales Officer for ShiftPixy’s staffing initiatives.
With expertise rooted in management’s more than 25 years of workers’ compensation and compliance programs experience, ShiftPixy adds a needed layer for addressing compliance and continued demands for equitable employment practices in the growing Gig Economy.
