FastCo, the company behind FastJobs, Asia’s top non-executive job portal for both jobseekers and employers, today announced the official launch of its new app FastGig. This is a move in response to ride on the growth of the gig economy that has burgeoned in recent years.
FastGig is a workforce as a service (WaaS) platform that helps to match qualified flexible workers with businesses looking for solutions to headcount constraints and labour shortage, especially during seasonal peaks. It is also one of the first job apps for gig workers in the Southeast Asian region.
Users can easily register for the FastGig platform without jumping through hoops. Existing FastJobs users can access the platform without the need for additional registration.
Once on the platform, users can select job listings via available locations and timeslots on a day-to-day basis. Gig workers are free to plan their own schedules, choosing to work according to their availability and convenience.
The entire experience from sign-up to payment on the platform is kept simple and fuss-free, even gig workers of above 60 years of age will not face difficulties using it.
The simplicity of the FastGig platform extends to its streamlined payment process. Users can enjoy the benefits of choosing to work at multiple businesses without the hassle of having to approach them individually for payment.
The hassle of filling up timesheets is also removed as users clock in at their work locations with a simple scan of a QR code using their FastGig app. Users will be paid directly on a weekly basis.
As a safeguard for FastGig users, only verified businesses and their job opportunities are listed on the platform.
To date, FastGig has worked with dozens of brands to bridge their staffing gap, fulfilling over 160,000 manhours. Notable mentions include partners such as NTUC FairPrice, Domino’s Pizza Singapore, and Phoon Huat, who have leveraged FastGig to scale their operations during seasonal peaks such as Christmas and Lunar New Year.
