Our aim is to create 1000 new full-time jobs by June 2018. It's free so make the pledge with BenchOn now!
We have only just started but we are going to fill this bar!
How it works
Job pledges traditionally just try to pressure businesses to create jobs out of thin air. Instead, BenchOn through our research and modelling into small business growth has created a job creation model that empowers businesses to create stable jobs by increasing their consistency in work and increasing their cash flow. In this way, we are creating the jobs that will support the next generation, not just the next election cycle.
Small business can't grow and create new jobs in an environment of financial risk associated with inconsistent contract work. Gaps in contracts create too much cost with employees on the bench.
Average utilisation rate is 73%. Average salary is $87k. So, a Company with 100 staff is losing $2.3m/year in under-utilisation costs (which could be translated into 23 new jobs).
Utilisation improves when short-term contracts are used to fill the gaps in contract work, so we built the platform to do it. Businesses pledge to match their short-term contracts to the businesses that are best placed to fill them.
Create consistent work for small business, pledge to fill your short-term contracts through the platform now. For every $100,000 saved, you empower a business to create one new, stable, full-time job.
Why a jobs pledge?
There is a lot of talk about talent shortage, but no sustainable and industry changing solutions. Small businesses will continue to lose quality people and shut down due to inconsistent work, unless something that actually tackles the issue head on is done. BenchOn has conducted extensive research in the small business community and developed a win/win model that empowers business to grow and create jobs while also improving the cost and efficiency of supplier matching. This is collaboration in action and we can all do our part!
