So what is Tempbuddy?
Tempbuddy will allow you to carry out a number of tasks far more easily and quickly than currently:
- You can update your availability of when you are or aren’t available for work
- We will offer you work and shifts through the app which you can accept and it will then show your upcoming shifts in an easy to use calandar planner
- You will receive immediate job updates and information when you accept, including a detailed map of where you will be working
- You will use it to clock in and clock out to help avoid any payroll errors, ensuring we know exactly when you were working to avoid any disputes as we can always prove you were on site now.
If you have any questions please contact your local office and we will be sending out plenty of information on how it will work.
Lastly though you will need a smartphone to make it work, don’t worry if you don’t have one as we can still contact you by SMS text message.
