How to Build the Workforce You Want with JobStack

No matter your staffing challenge, our app JobStack can tackle it. See how just one app can solve so many problems.

February 3, 2021

The success of your business depends on the quality of your workforce. You want to ensure that the workers you have showing up every day are dependable and have the skills needed to excel at the job. Working with a staffing company may seem like a risk—you aren’t the one in control of who is showing up every day—but it doesn’t have to be.

PeopleReady’s app, JobStack, helps you build a successful team of on-demand staff. When you use the app to request staff for your projects, you have the ability to rate workers, extend workers on your current job and request top performers again for future jobs. Let’s dive further into what all that means for you.

Find Top Performers

With JobStack, you can give every worker a rating between 1–5 stars after they complete a shift. Not only do you help other businesses spot great workers (and other businesses can do the same for you!), but you will find them more easily the next time you need top performers.

Speaking of top performers: When you need some additional help, JobStack allows you to reconnect with workers who have supported your team in the past. If you find workers you’d like to bring back, just send them an exclusive invitation to your job. That means no middleman and none of the hassle of having to onboard a new worker.

A Flexible Workforce

We know every day is different for your business, which means your need for a flexible workforce can change at any minute. Therefore, we offer the ability to extend job orders depending on your unique business needs, like if a project ends up taking longer than expected or if someone is fitting in well with your team and you want them to keep coming back.

After all, the only way to build a successful team is to choose the right workers for your business. JobStack has over 53,000 associates using the app every day, which allows you to find the right workers for your specific needs.

Of the top reasons customers chose to use JobStack, the ease of ordering was the clear winner. The ability to put out a call for workers from the phone you (probably always) have in your hand takes convenience to a new level.

I like that I can approve hours and submit orders even when I am not at my desk. With all the emails that come back and forth on a daily basis, the app cuts down on communication with the branch, and I can just log in on the app to enter what I need.

Half of users consider the ability to place orders yourself the top challenge they overcame, but not far behind is eliminating paperwork, inviting back top performers, and placing orders at any time. This variety is a prime example that JobStack simplifies all aspects of the hiring process.

[JobStack] has made it so much easier for our admins to handle payment after the job; no more trying to find where time cards went or confirm accuracy since we are able to submit hours before even leaving the job site. Being able to have more control over our orders with the app has been a great time saver and helps keep us organized with our multiple jobs.

JobStack customers cited saving time as the top benefit of using the app. When you can do everything from placing orders to approving time cards from your phone, you end up saving more time than you thought possible.

Since I own a small company and schedules change at the last minute, JobStack allows me to work my hours (24/7) without having to worry about getting someone on the phone to discuss [staffing] needs. I really like knowing whom to expect to show up before the beginning of the project.

No matter what industry you’re in, JobStack makes finding and keeping top workers easier than ever. Take it from our great customers: whatever you need to do to keep your business moving forward, you can do with JobStack.

Tips for Tackling After-Hour Work with JobStack

You get an urgent call from a customer requesting more workers at the job site. See how PeopleReady can help support your staffing efforts quickly and easily.

January 17, 2021

It’s 6 p.m. and after closing up shop, you’re finally ready to head home for the day. Just as you’re about to walk out the door, you get an urgent call from a customer. They have an urgent need that affects your job site.

How often do you find yourself working after hours? Sometimes it’s inevitable. In fact, 85.8% of men and 66.5% of women in the United States are working overtime. If you’re in this majority, here are some tips for tackling after-hours work.

Create a Plan

Taking work home with you can mean stress and distractions. A plan will help you stay on task as opposed to juggling work and your personal life. Make sure your plan indicates where you’ll be working, and create a work space at home will help keep you in a work mindset. There are likely to be distractions, so make sure to work in breaks as well.

Tackle What You Can

Always start with the most urgent tasks. If you know you need to complete a task on the jobsite by 7 a.m., tackle that first. The later it gets in the evening, the more likely it is that the other people you rely on will be offline. Always set a non-negotiable time where you put away your work. This will help you prioritize what you can get done before bed.

Partner When Possible

Look for partners who offer around-the-clock help. PeopleReady offers staffing solutions 24/7. Remember, always start with the most urgent tasks. With PeopleReady and JobStack, you’re able to place staffing orders from anywhere, at any time. This helps you get the help you need quickly, giving you more time to focus on more complicated tasks.
