NEW GIG MARKETPLACE, INSTAWORK, LAUNCHES IN MIAMI
The Largest Flexible Staffing App in the U.S. is Helping Miami Hospitality Professionals Find and Maintain High Paying Work
Miami, FL (January 16, 2020) - Instawork, the leading flexible staffing app for gig workers and hospitality businesses, announced today its expansion into Miami. This launch marks the first market for Instawork in Florida.
The company’s vision is to create economic opportunity for local workers and hospitality businesses. Instawork connects thousands of hospitality Professionals and business Partners every day through the easy to use Instawork app. While traditionally the hospitality industry suffers from high turnover rates and short-term, highly seasonal positions, Instawork addresses both of these issues by connecting businesses in need with qualified workers on demand.
Miami's hospitality industry employs more than 142,100 and the city's tourism industry is growing rapidly. Instawork Professionals make an average $16 per hour working an Instawork gig, substantially higher than minimum wage. Already over 6,000 people have already downloaded Instawork in Miami to find work as bartenders, cooks, servers, dishwashers, catering staff, and more.
“Miami was a logical next market for Instawork as it is a hotbed for hospitality and the city is growing incredibly fast,” said Andreina Morales, General Manager for Instawork Miami. “With marquee events like Art Basel and the Superbowl 2019, Miami is poised for a surge in hospitality staffing needs, and the response so far from the industry during our pilot period has surpassed our expectations. We are encouraged by the feedback we’ve seen from businesses and from professionals in the area who are looking for a new way to find flexible, high paying jobs.”
Instawork Partners can easily post gigs, which are filled with qualified Professionals within 24 hours and are typically filled 97% of the time. The app encourages both Professionals and Partners to rate each other on five-star scale after a gig to help match similar gigs in the future with those who are best qualified.
“Accountability, speed, and trust is something that I look for in staffing support...and Instawork fills that bill. We’ve had great experiences this month with their Professionals, and many who have, not only been good, but excellent,” said Bill Hansen from Bill Hansen Catering & Events, Instawork Miami’s Founding Partner.
“Instawork really cares. The Miami Instawork team has this altruism and the business Partners are good. So far I have felt respected, found great jobs, and have been paid well. Instawork has earned my loyalty,” said Leandro Arganaraz, Miami resident and Instawork Professional.
“We are very excited that Instawork has chosen Miami as their next city to expand to,” said Carlos Velez, Greater Miami & The Beaches NACE Chapter President. “We fully support innovative solutions that help both businesses and staff operate more efficiently, and we believe Instawork will be an incredibly positive addition to our industry.”
