CORNELIUS, N.C. — The future is flexible. At least, as far as MyWorkChoice sees it.
The Cornelius-based startup is working to redefine “flexible staffing” by offering a platform and app that essentially takes care of all the hassle with scheduling to create “seamless shift transitions.”
And it’s gaining traction.
The company announced that it closed on its first growth funding round of $3 million with a group of venture capital investors led by Mallard Capital’s Jeffrey Leck.
“It is simple – we work. We work for employees, and employers alike,” MyWorkChoice founder and CEO Tana Greene told WRAL TechWire.
To break it down, MyWorkChoice recruits, screens, trains and schedules a workforce community to meet the scalable needs of its customers — mainly in the industrial, warehouse and call center industries. Workers have the ability to view and instantly select shifts in four, six or eight-hour increments to build a schedule that fits their needs – up to 40 hours per week.
On the flip side, the platform’s technology is customized for every employer, overbuilding a community of vetted and trained W-2 employees to ensure that shifts are consistently filled.
“As a result, MyWorkChoice is delivering 95% fill rates with a 95% returning workforce for our customers. We make flexibility work for everyone,” said Greene.
Greene said this first round of funding will accelerate the company’s ongoing expansion and penetration into key geographic markets, “enabling its customers to engage the diverse and dependable workforce community they need to support their bottom line while eliminating overtime costs.”
In the last quarter alone, the platform has expanded into eight states and added new customers including Shutterfly, Nordstrom, DeWalt, and Fossil Group. Flexible job opportunities are now available in cities across Arizona, California, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas, with new locations being added rapidly.
