What do they do?
Gigomy offers a wide variety of benefits to a business using an on-demand workforce. While they offer several services, they can be narrowed down to three main solutions for your business.
- Payrolling Solutions – Ditch your contracted bookkeeper and free up your administrative staff. This service encompasses not just payroll and getting checks to your workers. It also includes benefits enrollment and ongoing employee support.
- Workforce Compliance – When it comes to worker classification, taxes and benefits, it’s a jungle out there! There is red tape at every corner, and it’s easy to make mistakes. The laws are complicated, and you don’t want to risk making errors. Gigomy’s Workforce Compliance handles the complexities for you.
- Onboarding Technology – Few things take as much time as onboarding new staff. There are lots of steps they need to take and following up can be time-consuming. This takes away from things like recruiting and employee engagement. Gigomy can handle every aspect of onboarding staff. Paperwork is a thing of the past. Their online platform streamlines the whole hiring process for you.
Who is this for?
Any company with a contingent workforce should consider Gigomy as a partner. If your workforce consists of:
- Gig workers
Then you can benefit from putting Gigomy in charge of your staff.
What are the benefits?
If you have a contingent workforce, you have flexibility when it comes to staffing and scheduling work. However, it also comes with its own set of challenges. Navigating the hiring of non-tradition employees can be tricky. It’s also time-consuming and pulls you away from other areas of focus in your organization. Having someone to manage these aspects allows you to spend your time more effectively, avoid mishaps, and keep your workers happy.
1. Onboarding Made Easy
Creating a seamless onboarding experience for both your workers and your organization is priceless. Gigomy’s Onboarding Technology makes the entire process easy to track, and easy to follow for your workforce. Say goodbye to endless paper trails and take all of your onboarding to their platform.
From screening to hiring, Gigomy makes it easy. Use the integration-first platform as you are going through the recruiting process. When the time comes to hire, you just pass things off to the Gigomy team to start the onboarding process. It’s easy to create forms and packages for new hires through the platform, so no matter what your onboarding looks like or how complex, they can handle it.
For new workers, Gigomy ensures that workers are welcomed, and all of the onboarding procedures are explained to them. They can access their forms from any device, while you can track their progress in real-time. Once they have completed the process, both you and their account manager will get a notification. From here they can easily access the full suite of benefits available to them. They can also keep a record of their hours through the cloud-based online system.
2. Focus Your Efforts
Want to work on expansion, but the tedious stuff keeps holding you back? Does bringing on more team members make you feel like you don’t have the resources to grow? You can throw those concerns out the window by relying on Gigomy to offset the time and efforts spent on onboarding and payroll.
Having the ability to step back from administrative tasks allows you to spend time on other important areas of your business. Rather than focusing on setting up new hires, you can focus your efforts on finding top talent. Your workforce is one of your biggest assets and having the ability to take the time to find the best possible staffers will be invaluable.
Once you have the right people, it’s important to keep them. Instead of pouring over paperwork, you can focus on things like engaging your workforce and creating a thriving work culture. This will lead to happier workers and increase retention.
3. Save Money
It takes a lot of time and work to welcome new staff, set them up with the correct paperwork, follow up with them through the steps, and get everything processed. Not to mention that it’s never-ending. You are likely almost always hiring, and that means an endless cycle of paperwork. Using a bookkeeper for payroll can be expensive, and a non-traditional workforce may not be their area of expertise.
Anything that saves you time will save you money in the end. Taking onboarding, payroll, benefits, unemployment claims, and terminations off of your plate means less administrative tasks for your company. You get to use your time more efficiently and focus on growth. It’s a win-win.
4. Eliminate Risk
Gigomy offers payrolling services that actually place workers under their payroll, making them the legal employer of record (EOR) or agent of record (AOR). That means that all liability for things like unemployment, workers compensation, taxes, compliance and payroll fall to them. You get to avoid any legal trouble that comes with 1099 employees and government labor regulations. No more stressing about misclassification!
Here’s how it works:
- Once you decide to bring someone onto your team, simply submit their info into Gogomy’s EmployStream.
- Gigomy will determine the best route for compliance, and one of two things will happen. The worker will either get enrolled onto Gigomy’s payroll as a W-2 employee, or Gigomy will become their agent of record (AOR). Either way, they handle payroll.
- You have access to detailed reporting and technology that is customized to you and your business. You will always be in the loop when it comes to onboarding and payroll processes.
- Freedom! No more calculating hours, processing pay, handling taxes, or entering data. Now you can tackle other projects!

5. Keep Workers Happy
New staff will feel welcome right from the start. Gigomy makes their onboarding a welcoming process and easy to follow. They can access it from any device and can clearly see each step that is needed and where they are in the process. Offering benefits like medical, dental, and vision adds to the value of their partnership with you. A simple transition onto your team starts them off on the right foot.
Having the time to focus on worker engagement will only further benefit you and your team. Spending less time managing the administrative details and more time on sourcing great staff and building a fun place to work means higher retention. Scaling your business will be easier when your workers want to stick around and feel valued. It’s hard to put the effort you want into engagement when you are constantly just trying to keep up with hiring and onboarding. Having a better workforce in your business sets the stage for success.
