In the present climate, many are struggling to make ends meet. Whether they have lost their job completely, perhaps just working reduced hours or trying to support their family on furlough, money has become tight. And, because of the uncertainty around business, many companies are not looking to hire extra permanent staff, so getting a new job isn’t as easy as it once was.
Yes, much has changed over the past year. But something that hasn’t changed are our basic needs. We still need to eat, clothe ourselves, pay for a roof over our heads, and such like. Those things will never change. So, what are we to do?
Thankfully, in the face of these seemingly limited work opportunities, companies like Shiftsmart have come to the rescue. Using innovative technology, Shiftsmart has transformed the flexible labor market, connecting skilled workers with companies via an app. Never before has it been so easy for workers to communicate directly with managers looking for their precise skills.
In addition, recognising the devastating effect the pandemic was having on the global workforce, Shiftsmart pioneered ‘Get Shift Done’. A non-profit initiative to assist those who have been furloughed or laid off by connecting them with other non-profit organisations, such as those offering meals to those in need. Not only has this allowed those workers to earn a wage, but it has also given extra support to these non-profit organisations at a time when they needed it most.
So, what’s the message we wanted to get across in this post? In short, don’t despair! While many are facing challenges like never before, work, or lack of it, need not be one of them. We’ve all got skills that employers want. The trick has always been connecting the two. Using Shiftsmart’s innovative platform, all the hard work has been done for you, leaving you to focus on what you do best.
So, whether you’re already familiar with labor management systems but have never jumped in, or it’s not something that has been on your radar – check it out and get working, earning and loving life once again. To steal a phrase… Get Shift Done!
