We’re different from local temp agencies because these data points are available to you to review via their profile. Plus, once they start completing shifts through Instawork, we continue to assess their work performance with ratings, feedback, and on-time metrics.

Do you offer W-2?

Yes! Our goal is to offer you the flexibility to staff in the manner that best suits your company. We can provide staffing on either 1099 or W-2 employment model. Speak with a Partnerships Manager to learn more.
