Wonolo Expands On-Demand Staffing Platform to Chicago Market

Chicago Area Businesses Can Now Benefit From Wonolo's Platform to Recruit and Manage Talent

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2016) - Wonolo, an on-demand staffing platform enabling businesses to fill their immediate labor needs, today announced the expansion of its operations to Chicago, enabling the region's businesses to instantly connect with qualified hourly and daily talent to meet rapidly shifting demands.

Wonolo connects businesses looking to fill positions quickly to a pool of more than 20,000 vetted workers, called Wonoloers. Posting jobs to the Wonolo platform, companies connect with qualified workers in minutes, rather than days or weeks, while saving up to 40 percent on staffing costs as compared to staffing agencies or external service providers. The result is a comprehensive yet easy-to-use platform for companies to recruit, onboard, pay and manage their 1099, W-2 and internal workforce from a single platform.

"Wonolo has transformed the way businesses around the country get their work done, and we are eager to expand our marketplace into the dynamic Chicago market," said AJ Brustein, co-founder and COO of Wonolo. "By delivering the technology that enables businesses to mitigate unpredictability and power their frontline workforce with on-demand talent through our community of Wonoloers, we help businesses overcome one of the most pressing challenges they are facing today -- finding the right talent at the right time."

The labor model has changed considerably in recent years, with businesses looking to leverage daily or hourly staff to supplement their full-time workforces. This new model not only serves businesses well, but is ideal for the growing number of individuals seeking greater flexibility and control over when and how much they work, while providing the opportunity to gain experience in a wide range of industries and job types.

Since 2014, Wonolo has helped companies in key markets around the United States, including San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York, adapt to this new model, by providing on-demand staffing software along with direct access to a contingent workforce. The move into the Chicago market is part of the company's ongoing expansion efforts.

By bringing its solutions to Chicago, Wonolo can serve this vibrant and growing market and help businesses across the larger Chicagoland area to augment their workforces, meet rapidly fluctuating demands and address changing business priorities. Chicago represents one of the most diverse economies in the United States. As a result, the city provides an environment rich with opportunity for contingent work.
