How Instawork Prepares Washington D.C.’s Hospitality Industry for Increased Tourism

Spring and Summer are the busiest times of the year for the tourism and hospitality industry, with more than 20 million travelers expected to descend on the Nation’s Capital this year. Tourists and business travelers usually bring more than $900 million in annual revenue to local businesses.

In the District of Columbia, 40,000 people have already downloaded the Instawork app, where hourly workers can make an average of $18.71 per hour, 20% above the local minimum wage.

Businesses are matched with skilled Pros

As local businesses prepare for increased customer demand ahead of the busy spring and summer travel season, Instawork is setting them up for success by connecting them with skilled hourly workers. These businesses, Instawork Partners, are consistently matched with high quality, reliable Pros to fill available shifts and deliver valuable services. 

The Instawork platform uses over 30 data points to best match Pros with businesses that need their skills and experience. We also encourage both hourly workers and businesses to rate each other on a five-star scale after each shift to help match future shifts with those who are best qualified. 

Businesses that rely on Instawork Pros range from nationally-recognized hotels and restaurant groups to some of the city’s favorite local hot spots. Instawork is also proud to staff over half of the baseball stadiums across the country, including D.C.
