The gig economy has arrived and it goes hand-in-hand with society’s need for all things convenient. We want everything in the palm of our hand, right when we need it. And now the hiring process for the supply chain industry is about to undergo a similar evolution.
After 20 years in the supply chain industry, we’ve noticed that the hiring process has more or less always followed the same cycle.
For Companies, the process goes something like this:
- Post a job
- Receive and screen resumes (many of whom are unqualified or unsuitable)
- Set up and conduct lengthy interviews
- Additional tedious steps such as testing or checking references
- Finally, you can select a candidate
For Individuals, this can be an even more daunting process:
- Agonize over a resume
- Register with various job boards and search through endless postings
- Submit a resume
- Wait for a call for an interview (if ever)
- Go to interview
- Wait again to find out if you have been selected
- Accept offer
These are both lengthy processes that neither the employer or potential employee enjoys. We know because we have been working with both sides for a long time.
We invest so much time in this process and the reality is most of it is based on hope. Hope that you picked the right candidate and hope that you accepted the right offer… or that you even get an offer! The decision to hire a particular candidate is based on the person’s past experience and on questions being asked during an interview, sometimes by multiple people in the same room. You don’t actually know if they can do what they claim until you try them out.
There are lots of people that can answer questions well, but it doesn’t mean they can do the job. We can’t even tell you how many terrible interviews we have had with outstanding workers. There is no science and no assessment that we have seen, that can predict anything 100%.
This is why the ZiGGY team have been working to change the way you find staff or search for work. We aren’t reinventing the wheel. Companies like Uber, Upwork, Skip the Dishes, and Fiver have brought freelancing and gig work to millions of people.
