CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 12, 2023--

OndeWork Inc. today announced it has opened its platform to a limited number of construction companies and individuals looking for work in Vancouver, BC and Edmonton, AB. This milestone is a major move for OndeWork on its mission to help low-skilled workers upskill and find full-time or part-time employment with great companies looking to grow.

OndeWork.com is a marketplace for companies to reimagine how they attract and recruit workers and for individuals to reimagine how they can demonstrate their skills and experience to companies. Using on-demand jobs, companies can instantly get the help they need while evaluating an individual. Individuals instantly earn money while assessing how well their skills and experience match what a company needs. Using OndeWork.com to connect companies and workers means the time and costs associated with hiring are a fraction of the costs associated with job boards, job websites, and temporary staffing agencies.

OndeWork.com, which has already seen success in Calgary, AB, with more than 300 shifts completed by OndeWorkers since its launch in March 2022, offers an solution for construction companies that need help and individuals that need work. By removing the time involved in using job boards and removing the placement costs associated with hiring workers through agencies, OndeWork.com is helping companies solve their labour challenges by providing them with an easy way to try workers before making a permanent hiring decision.

“What started as a solution to a problem in my construction business,” said Dylan Gallagher, Founder, “has become a new way to think about hiring. It has changed how we recruit by helping us find high-quality individuals we may not have found otherwise.”

Short-term temporary jobs, or “gig work”, have worked for single-task jobs such as offering rides or delivering food, and OndeWork.com believes an opportunity exists to build on the momentum created by the gig economy. By providing one to five days jobs with companies that need low-skilled work tasks completed, individuals can earn income while being evaluated for permanent positions. Companies benefit by getting the help they need using temporary workers while assessing their skills. Short-term temporary jobs are the next iteration of “gig work”.

OndeWork.com is available on a limited basis in Vancouver, BC and Edmonton, AB, and plans to expand to more cities later this year.

“We believe OndeWork.com has the power to positively change and disrupt the conventional hiring and recruitment options available to companies that need low-skilled workers,” said Dylan Gallagher.

Companies and individuals in Vancouver, BC and Edmonton, AB, can visit www.ondework.com to learn more and start exploring the features and benefits of on-demand labour.
