WorkJam Announces Alliance With VMware

WorkJam | January 18, 2022

Acquisition News
On January 17, WorkJam, a preferred digital workplace partner for organizations with hourly workers, announced partnering with VMware, a premier enterprise software provider. The partnership will connect WorkJam’s communication, learning, task management, and shift management solutions with VMware’s Workspace ONE, a unified end management (UEM) platform. The interoperability between the two digital workplace service providers will enable companies to deliver a more uniform digital employee experience, with improved productivity and reduced costs. The partnership was announced on the first day of the NRF 2022, one of the largest annual retail trade shows.

Workspace ONE’s customers will be able to use WorkJam’s time and attendance data to deploy selective restrictions on confidential corporate content  including inventory management as well as buy online, pick-up in store (BOPIS) applications, at a time when employees are off the clock.

The combination of WorkJam and Workspace ONE will enable organizations employing frontline workers to:
  • Deliver a consolidated digital employee experience
  • Refine communication channels and operational processes
  • Cultivate a learning culture with incentivized learning and upskilling
  • Enhance employee retention and work performance through a consistent employee experience
  • Provide a uniform, organization-wide consumer experience

"Frontline workers need to access productivity tools via multiple touch points throughout the day, which can cause serious risk for both security and productivity if not handled thoughtfully. That's why WorkJam and VMware are coming together. As businesses continue to navigate change in a time of technological advancement, it's becoming increasingly important for businesses to prioritize clarity, accessibility, and security."

- Rich Halbert, Chief Strategy Officer at WorkJam,

"Empowered and digitally connected employees can make all the difference for retailers. BYO and COPE policies enable retailers to redefine the employee experience and maintain a competitive advantage. Together with WorkJam, we are powering the future of digital workspaces to help our customers better deploy BOYD and COPE with the privacy employees demand and the enhanced data security that IT requires. Armed with the necessary tools to make their jobs easier and more productive, employees can transform the retail experience from the inside out." 

- Ed Durbin, Director of VMware's Global Retail Industry Group

Workstream Launches First Multilingual AI Chatbot Built for Hourly Workforce Management

Newswire | July 20, 2023

Workstream, the smart people management platform for the hourly workforce, announced today its new, groundbreaking multilingual and customizable AI chatbot, Workstream Assistant. As the flagship product in the company's move to a fully AI-powered workforce management solution, Workstream Assistant empowers businesses to connect with and retain hourly workers across diverse markets nationwide. With artificial intelligence experience from MIT, Google, Cornell and Stanford, Workstream built the first multilingual AI chatbot platform to broaden accessibility to AI to the over 80 million hourly workers in the U.S. According to research by the Urban Institute, 14% of all workers in the U.S. and 20% of low-wage workers are immigrants who use English as a second language. These numbers are projected to continue growing. Workstream Assistant can understand a wide range of languages to accommodate the diversifying workforce and will use machine learning to provide applicants with more information about the company while gathering applicant information. By enabling workers to communicate in any language they're comfortable in, Workstream Assistant empowers applicants to ask more questions about the position and company — from what career progression they can expect to what the company culture is like. Giving hourly workers the opportunity to vet jobs through a natural conversation before they apply encourages a better applicant-to-job fit, resulting in stronger hires and better employee retention for businesses. "I am thrilled to embrace the power of AI in our recruiting and retention efforts. With the ability to personalize Workstream Assistant to embody our brand, we expect to attract more applicants excited to join the Eegee's family, resulting in stronger hires," according to Jason Kornosky, director of operations for Eegee's. "The chat-apply experience is so natural and authentic that it makes it easy for applicants to ask questions and vet us as much as we vet them. I see this having a big impact on how we build a loyal, happy workforce, and I can't wait to see what more we can accomplish with Workstream AI." Paired with funding from Peter Thiel's Founders Fund, GGV Capital, Mark Cuban, Will Smith, Jay Z, The Chainsmokers, and Dropbox co-founder Arash Ferdowsi, Workstream has helped franchisees and businesses like Burger King, UPS, and Marriott hire and retain several million hourly employees since 2017. Workstream's new AI technology, through integration with OpenAI, builds on this expertise while using previously acquired data points to create an AI platform to serve the hourly workforce. "Workstream Assistant represents a crucial breakthrough for the hourly workforce and is an indispensable tool for hiring managers and HR professionals in this domain," said Desmond Lim, CEO and co-founder of Workstream. "Its ability to bridge communication gaps and provide a seamless hiring experience makes it an essential resource for organizations seeking to attract and retain top talent in the competitive hourly workforce landscape." About Workstream Workstream is the smarter way to hire and retain hourly workers. Its smart technology automates and accelerates HR tasks — like sourcing, screening, scheduling, and onboarding — so businesses can focus on providing a great experience to applicants and workers throughout their employee journey. More than 20,000 businesses trust Workstream to hire faster and retain their teams. Learn more at workstream.us.
