Amazon delivers over 1.6 million packages a day, all sorted and assembled by "frontline workers" - the folks in warehouses, production facilities, and more. But Amazon is not alone - it's one of thousands of e-commerce, industrial, logistics, transportation and warehousing companies that depend on frontline workers for their success.
Demand for these workers is strong - up nearly 40% despite COVID. However, worker turnover is high, up every year of the last decade, which has an adverse effect on both workers and employers.
WorkStep is tackling this $100 billion problem, offering the only Enterprise hiring and retention solution purpose-built for this sector. Workstep helps large enterprises source better, more qualified frontline workers more cost-effectively, while increasing the satisfaction -- and retention -- of existing frontline employees. The result is better candidates, more satisfied employees, much lower churn, and up to 30% of employee costs saved annually.
WorkStep is growing at well over 100% per year with a customer base that includes 16 of the Fortune 500. The company just raised a $10 million series A led by FirstMark Capital (on top of a $6.7 seed round), and is stepping on the gas big time.
