The future is flexible. At least as far as MyWorkChoice sees it.
The North Carolina-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.
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. “It is simple – we work. We work for employees, and employers alike,” said MyWorkChoice founder and CEO Tana Greene.
