What is the goal of our platform?

To save time and money when hiring skilled laborers, of course!

OnDeck Pro was ultimately conceived as a solution to a multitude of problems found in the blue collar job sector. It is exceptionally challenging to find and retain employees who were skilled enough to do specialized jobs that require licensing, worked well with an already established team, and ultimately found their work fulfilling and their compensation adequate.

Finding skilled workers in a timely manner is extremely challenging as it is. Even after offering better pay, benefits, or the potential for quick advancement, simply finding someone who was willing to do the job was an issue. We want to change that by providing better visibility in the hiring process to save both businesses and workers time and money.

How do we aim to solve the problem of visibility in the blue-collar sector?

By providing relevant information about workers and businesses up-front.

We want to solve this issue by leveraging technology to make it easier for people to connect and find shared value in the work they need to get done. By providing a platform where employers can find people who fit the job at hand, and workers with a way to find the companies that they would like to work for, it's simple; both sides need a way to be seen and heard, and we aim to do just that.

How is this different from other job services or temp agencies?

We want the work you do to be mutually beneficial for the smallest placement cost to the business as possible.

Many times, workers will be referred through temp agencies, and while they would generally provide what you need, it was hard to find the right fit for a multitude of reasons ranging from culture fit and expectations about expertise to location and compensation expectations. We aim to let businesses and workers communicate and make sound judgments before either of them invest large amounts of time and money.

How is this going to save my business time and money?

By helping you make better decisions and save big on placements.

Worker placement from temp agencies can cost upwards of $10,000 AUD for a single position. This is a large investment in simply placing a worker you needed a week ago, or a problem if you need a specialist to do it right the first time. How is it that one of the only ways to consistently acquire licensed and reliable talent costs so much, takes so grudgingly long, and the information and leads they present you with go bust just as often as traditional hiring methods?

We at OnDeck Pro think that this is not the way to find talent to grow your business. Instead of rolling dice and wasting valuable company resources, you can instead be provided with relevant worker details up-front, can view licensing and reviews from previous gigs, and get a sense of who you are looking to interview, and eventually hire, by perusing their OnDeck Pro profile and setting up a chat with them. With video introductions, you can get a sense of who someone is and what they are passionate about before you make contact.
