The Benefits of Shared Labor Pools

As both employers and employees know, there’s a perpetual struggle to balance between the interests of a company and those of its employees. Companies benefit by cutting costs while increasing production, whereas workers benefit from increased pay and flexible hours. As we’ve mentioned before, neither party can be faulted for these expectations, which is why it is high time for a solution that satisfies everyone’s needs. And that’s exactly what a shared labor pool creates: a competitive environment that benefits both sides of the equation.

Motivation through competition

At Veryable, we’ve created a marketplace of on-demand labor that motivates businesses and operators alike. The competitive environment of our shared labor pool creates clear benefits for everyone involved. Operators are incentivized to exceed performance expectations and broaden their skillsets, which allows them to win more and better work opportunities, while businesses are incentivized to offer competitive pay and work environments to attract the highest skilled operators.

Incentivized excellence

In a traditional factory setting, there is little to no incentive for workers to surpass expectations. In contrast, an operator using Veryable is strongly motivated to excel because higher performance ratings give them a competitive edge over their peers. Not only does this allow operators to win higher paying work opportunities, it also gives them a greater sense of autonomy and control over their career, which is almost non-existent in traditional shop floor positions.

In the same vein, businesses are also motivated to improve and excel through the shared labor pool because those that offer competitive pay and better work conditions will attract the best operators.  In addition, there is incredible value to businesses in merely building their specific labor pools of familiar, qualified operators.  With turnover rates and global cost pressures at historical highs, having a stable pool of 500 local operators available on-demand is a much more effective operations strategy than trying to continuously maintain 100 full timers and all the churn that results from continuous turnover, absenteeism, etc.

Win-win situation

In conclusion, Veryable’s approach to shared labor pools creates an environment of competition and accountability that benefits everyone involved. Whether you’re interested in using Veryable as a business or an operator, we can offer you the opportunity to exceed.

Why on-demand work is right for you

Do you ever wish you could take time off work whenever you want, rather than waiting for approval from a supervisor? Do you ever wish you could work extra to afford something special, but can’t get any OT at work?

If you answered “yes,” then on-demand work might be the perfect solution for you: work when you want, where you want, and how much you want, with no one to tell you how many or how few hours you’re allowed. We know it sounds too good to be true, but let us walk you through some of the benefits of becoming a Veryable operator, and you’ll see why thousands of Texans have already joined our on-demand workforce.

Flexibility

One of the biggest reasons for choosing on-demand work is the ability to create your own schedule. Are you a night owl who hates waking up early? Do you have kids you wish you could spend more time with after school? With on-demand work, you can easily find work opportunities that fit the schedule that you need.

Diversity

Too many of us have experienced the monotony of doing the same old job, day in and day out. But with on-demand work, you’ll never feel stuck in a dead-end job again. You get to choose which work opportunities you want, which means you can try out different industries and types of work without locking yourself down to something you may not like. Even better, you can gain relevant experience in any field you’re interested in, and this will help you find better work opportunities in the future.

Increased Income

Everyone can always use more money. It’s a fact of life. Even with a full-time job, there never seems to be enough to cover all of life’s little expenses. So why not make extra money when you have the time? With on-demand work, you can quickly find work and make extra cash any time you want. And yes, you may have to withhold your own taxes, but did you know that independent contractors get nifty tax deductions for stuff like travel expenses and work supplies? Not a bad deal at all.

To sum it all up, there’s no reason not to join the Veryable on-demand workforce. Even if you’re just looking for a way to make some extra spending money, there are always new work opportunities waiting. So come try out Veryable and see how on-demand work will work for you.

Is On-Demand Labor Right for Your Business?

As anyone in charge of staffing for a company knows, trying to accurately predict exactly when and how much labor your operation will need can be incredibly difficult. Demand will always be volatile, so demand planning can only get you so far, especially for newer businesses that don’t have substantial past data to reference. And even if your business does have the data and budget for extensive demand planning, why risk unexpected fluctuations in demand when there’s a cheaper, savvier way to address your labor needs that eliminates the guesswork?

Sure, temporary staffing agencies have long been the standard for helping to address these needs, but they present their own set of limitations and frustrations for business owners. Excessive fees, binding contracts, temporary-to-hire restrictions, and lengthy wait times are par for the course, but up until recently, businesses have had no other recourse. Now, however, there is a new alternative that addresses any temporary labor needs your business may have, all while circumventing the hassles of using traditional staffing approaches.

Welcome to on-demand labor.

With on-demand labor, you can adjust your labor capacity in real-time, allowing you to respond immediately to unexpected fluctuations in demand. The implications of this for business owners cannot be overstated. Without the flexibility of on-demand labor, there are potential pitfalls on both sides of the equation. Anticipate too much demand and you’re left locked into a steep temp agency contract with a supply of unneeded workers, exacerbating the financial strain already brought about by the slow cycle. Conversely, under-anticipating your labor needs may prevent you from accepting additional orders, forcing you to reject potential revenue.

On-demand labor renders both of these contingencies entirely avoidable. Veryable’s on-demand labor marketplace allows you to post work opportunities on a per piece, hourly, or daily basis, so there’s no obligation to continue contracting operators if demand lags unexpectedly. On the flip side, you can also use Veryable to quickly scale your labor capacity for an unexpected spike in demand, so you’ll never have to turn away potential revenue again. There truly is no downside to utilizing Veryable to address market volatility.

 

Additional benefits of on-demand labor.

In case you haven’t already been convinced, consider these additional advantages to using Veryable’s on-demand labor marketplace:

1. 40% reduction in labor acquisition cost compared to traditional staffing methods

2. No administrative burden: every operator is background checked, fully insured, and paid through Veryable

Feel free to poke around a bit more on our website or call (214) 530-2336 if you want more information. Better yet, there’s no commitment or cost for creating a profile on our business portal, so head over to http://company.veryableops.com/ to start familiarizing yourself with our platform and perusing our operator list. The profile setup takes less than five minutes, and only requires basic information about your business. There’s also direct chat support in the business portal, so we can help you through the process if you have any questions.

After you’ve set up your profile, you can spend some time looking around the portal, or go ahead and enter in your payment method to create your very first work request (we call them ‘ops’). We’ve included plenty of great ways to customize your op, like the ability to pay hourly or by unit, and to set it as either single or multi-day. Here’s a quick outline of the Veryable process:

1. Create and post an op according to your specifications

2. Operators in your area will submit requests (‘bids’ in Veryable lingo) to work on the op

3. From there, all you have to do is accept the bids you want

4. Veryable notifies the operators instantly, they perform the op, and you get to rate their performance

No contracts, no long-term commitments, no paperwork. Welcome to Veryable.
