Leading Retail Groups Partner to Help Advance Workers' Careers via Smartphones
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigwalk, the world's largest on-demand mobile workforce, today announced a major upgrade to their platform that involves new higher skilled, higher paid "Gigs" (jobs on the Gigwalk app) and free training programs based on worker certifications. Gigwalk is now the only mobile work marketplace that allows workers to advance their careers through special courses and certifications. The company is announcing partnerships with two leading retail industry organizations on this initiative: World Alliance for Retail Excellence & Standards™, the only trade association representing the Retail Service Sector; and Retail Integrity, one of the fastest growing retail service companies in the nation.
The benefits now available to Gigwalkers on the platform include:
"These enhancements present a giant leap forward for both workers and companies that need work done at retail," said Matt Crampton, founder and chief technology officer, Gigwalk. "Companies can now quickly find and hire the right person for their job without the long process of interviewing candidates and relying on references for past work performance."
Mike Bynoe, chief executive officer, Retail Integrity added, "We are really impressed with Gigwalk's enhanced workforce. Gigwalk's solutions use industry certification and observed work history to choose who is offered particular Gigs resulting in consistent, high-quality results. The high skill level and qualifications of the Gigwalk workforce coupled with the company's technology mean they are capable of completing jobs much more efficiently than a traditional merchandising business model, which saves their customers time and money."
Workers can sign up for the Gigwalk app for free on their iPhone or Android devices. For retail workers who have already taken courses or have certifications, they can include them on their Enhanced Worker Profile and access high skilled jobs upon signing up.
Gigwalk is an on-demand mobile work marketplace connecting Fortune 1000 businesses with hundreds of thousands of smartphone-enabled jobs around the world so they can get work done anywhere. Since its launch in May 2011, over 370,000 Gigwalkers have completed more than 4 million professional Gigs for businesses across the U.S., Canada and United Kingdom. Customers include Microsoft, Reckitt Benckiser, BMW and Frito Lay. The company is based in San Francisco, Calif., and is backed by August Capital, Harrison Metal, SoftTech, Greylock Discovery, Accelerator Ventures, and Founder Collective.
