Instawork Adds Over 1 Million Workers to Support Holiday Demand

Flexible work app connects businesses with skilled workers to meet increased customer volume

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Instawork, the leading platform for connecting businesses with qualified and reliable workers, announced today that over 1 million people have joined the app in the last six months leading up to the holiday season. This announcement comes as Americans are returning to stores, social gatherings, and work events in the first post-covid holiday season.

For many businesses, the holiday season is the busiest time of year due to increased customer demand. According to Deloitte, sales of retail and consumer products will generate over $1 trillion by the end of the year. Even with a possible recession, businesses need qualified and reliable workers to help them navigate the seasonal surge. 

Instawork uses predictive algorithms with machine learning to seamlessly connect thousands of businesses with more than three million flexible workers, using a multitude of data points to ensure the best match between the business' staffing needs and the worker's skill set and experience. Instawork helps businesses in food & beverage, hospitality, and warehouse/logistics industries fill temporary and permanent roles across the U.S. and Canada.
