Short Staffed? WrkWrk Can Help

You’ve scoured the dark corners of the web, flirted with the idea of using voodoo, and dealt with your share of duds, but FINALLY, your roster is full, and you’re pretty darn proud of that! You have no need for temp staff, or so you thought…

Your hotel has a large wedding booked on Saturday, but two of your star bar staff are on annual leave, and a third just called in with a wicked head cold. You have a couple of options:

1. Grin and bear it. Any hospitality professional worth their salt can easily tell you a hundred different stories of being short-staffed and having bar line-ups that blur into the horizon. While this may have been acceptable in the past, that is not how the cookie crumbles post-pandemic. A recent Forbes study found that 93% of customer service teams say customers have higher expectations than ever before. Not to mention, a quicker service means more pints in hands and more euros in the bank!

2. Recruit – You could post job ads, do interviews, call references, and (maybe) be lucky enough to find suitable candidates. The thing is, your core team is strong, and you only need these staff for one day. Do you have the time (and patience) to deal with that headache? Let alone the fun of adding them on payroll and registering them with revenue?

3. Give up. Use WrkWrk! Ahh, finally, a real solution! WrkWrk has a database of over 3,500 hospitality and retail workers nationwide. All of our Wrkstars have been interviewed, reference checked, and are coming to you with prior relevant work experience. All you need to do is download the app (available for IOS and Android), tell us what you need (bar, wait, barista, etc.…), how many you need, what you’ll pay them, and where you need them. They are registered with WrkWrk, so you don’t have to deal with any pesky paperwork and nobody to register with revenue! You just get to sit back and watch your shift fill in real-time.  Loved the bartender we sent you? You can add them to your favourites list, and they will get first refusal next time you book a shift!

Whether you need last-minute cover (you can book up to 4 hours before the shift starts) for a single bartender or a 100 bright and bubbly event staff in a couple weeks’ time, WrkWrk has the resources and the proven track record to make your event a roaring success! Afterall, we make shiftwork work for everyone!
