What working in a warehouse is like
Whether you realize it or not, warehouses play an important role in our daily lives. They help supply us with the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and the gifts we buy. Working in a warehouse is also a great way to earn extra money, especially during the holiday season.
What it's like to work in a stadium
The cheers of the crowd, the smell of popcorn, the team spirit in the air… there’s nothing quite like being in a stadium on game day. Usually, you have to buy expensive tickets to get in. But on Instawork, there are open shifts at stadiums and arenas all the time. It’s the perfect job for any sports fan!
How to make sure holiday events go off without a hitch
Even during a typical year, the holidays are among the busiest periods for the hospitality industry. But with corporate events and holiday gatherings finally making a return, event schedules are packed tighter than we’ve seen since pre-pandemic days. In times like these, it's easy for things to fall through the cracks — but to truly get back to business as usual, venues and vendors need to be at the top of their game.
6 Tips for boosting morale in your warehouse during peak season
The last quarter of the year is intensely busy if you work in a warehouse. Trying to get all of the orders shipped out in time for them to arrive before the holidays is a big challenge — one that often requires long hours and lots of physical effort. And no one feels the pressure more than your frontline workers. But stressed, burnt-out, and disengaged workers on the warehouse floor is a recipe for disaster.
Overcoming the warehouse labor shortage through strategic staffing
Warehouse jobs have seen tremendous growth ever since the pandemic spurred an e-commerce boom, and they’re not showing any signs of slowing down. In October alone, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the industry added 54,000 jobs. But as anyone in warehouse management or operations can tell you, applications are nowhere near keeping pace with the number of positions posted. In times like these, strategic staffing becomes more important than ever.
[Takeaways] Making your business COVID-safe in 2022
The most stringent COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, and many companies are returning to their pre-pandemic levels of business. But for employers, operations and regulations are quite different from what they were in early 2020. Local, state, and federal regulations regarding safety regulations, employer requirements, and workplace mandates continue to change at a dizzying pace. Likewise, COVID-19 shows no signs of going away anytime soon.
