Workfast on-­demand technology a solution to temp staff needs

CLIENT: WORKFAST
OUTLET: THE AUSTRALIAN 

A new on-demand temp agency says its technology slashes costs by 30 per cent and gives workers better conditions. Workfast launches nation­wide this week, and uses on-­demand technology to connect workers with workplaces and vice-versa, filling the temporary staffing needs of workplaces that often struggle to find good staff quickly. “Whereas a traditional temp agency might hire out a worker at $50 per hour and add a management fee, Workfast would hire out the same employee for an all-­inclusive hourly rate of $35 and not charge an additional management fee. That’s a saving of 30 per cent right there,” Mr Nieuwenhuis said.
