Backed up by a 0-5 star rating system on both sides, the platform will give employers access to a far bigger pool of candidates than they are currently exposed to, at a far cheaper cost than staffing agencies.
For on demand needs, employers will be able to use a ‘left for no, right for yes’ swiping system to express interest in candidate profiles, while the candidates will use the same swiping system to express interest in employers. Once a match is made, the employer can choose from a shortlist of 5 matches to book their preferred candidate in for that shift.
For employers looking to make ongoing or full time hires, they will also be able to use the swiping system to express interest in candidates that they would like to interview for ongoing or full time vacancies. Candidates will use the same system to express interest in employers, and once a match is made they will have access to in app messaging and tools to arrange interviews.
Additionally, Pluggd is creating an appreciating reward token that’s value increases due to growth of the app, and can be exchanged for local currency or can be spent on food and drinks with hospitality establishments using the app. Tokens will be distributed for user activities that help the app grow, such as filling shifts, hiring available staff, and inviting new users.
