SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2016) - BlueCrew, the on-demand, data-driven staffing platform for blue-collar jobs, today announced an exciting new career structure to allow advancement for all employees on the platform.
Traditionally, one of the main restricting factors to employee retention is career growth. Staffing agencies and on-demand companies struggle with high turnover because employees are treated as commoditized labor with little upward career mobility. Employees feel that the only way they can advance their pay, position or skill set is to move to another company.
The BlueCrew "Points and Promo" structure is the answer to sustainable career advancement, giving employees the opportunity to grow in responsibility, wage, and title within a rapidly expanding startup. The Points and Promo structure allows for unbiased career growth for dedicated workers. Every shift worked contributes points to an employee's profile and bolsters their resumé. Excellent performance boosts the worker's points, which can be redeemed in the form of career advancement. Cancellations and low ratings work against employee points. Different BlueCrew titles come with extra perks, including early access to popular jobs, raffles, raises, advanced trainings, and chances to launch new clients, to recruit, and to lead BlueCrew teams.
Here is what BlueCrew workers are saying about their careers:
"I just wanted to say that I love BlueCrew. It has been a wonderful experience working for them, the staff are marvelous ... I love the fact that you work and it's flexible and works with you, not against you ... I love earning points towards bettering myself and my career. You guys and gals are amazing!" -- Lakendra W, Elite Member
"I started out mopping the floors, lifting heavy trays of bread for hours with one goal: to get favorited at every site I worked at. Now with over 10 companies favoriting me, I worked my way up to field coordinator and lead a team of 40+ BlueCrew workers. I even help grow BlueCrew by interviewing the incoming BlueCrew new recruits!" -- JeanMarie Ngalula, Field Coordinator
BlueCrew has always placed high importance on the fair treatment of employees in hopes to become the best and biggest employer in the world. The team mentality of BlueCrew helps clients trust and rely on the amazing workforce whenever they need to post jobs. By hiring everyone as W-2 employees, BlueCrew's workforce benefit from all the perks, protections, and labor laws of traditional employment as opposed to hiring 1099 independent contractors like many other startups. These benefits include workers compensation, overtime pay, a favorable tax situation and sick days. Employees even qualify for health benefits if they work full-time on the platform.
BlueCrew's on-demand staffing platform automates the screening and matching of the most qualified and trusted candidates to the right jobs. BlueCrew's algorithms empower employers to cut through the clutter of thousands of temporary job candidates so that they can hire top temporary talent at the click of a button for positions such as movers, drivers, event staff, forklift operators, warehouse staff, data entry personnel, and customer service reps. Located in San Francisco, BlueCrew is backed with initial funding from investors including Y Combinator, Index Ventures, Foundation Capital, Silicon Valley Angels, Sound Ventures, Liquid 2 Ventures and Stanford StartX.
