BACKGROUND AND OPPORTUNITY

The hourly workforce currently constitutes almost 60% of the overall labor market in the United States and these nearly 80 million hourly workers are the driving force behind many of our largest domestic industries like food/beverage, retail, and hospitality. Management of this workforce has historically been difficult due to high churn (average of 60%), high cost of replacement (average of $3,200 per employee in retail), and now new challenges are developing as millennials enter this market. The retail vertical alone spends $62 billion dollars a year on replacing workers and over 50% of hourly workers leave their jobs because of flexibility reasons. 

 

In our modern, Uber-ized times, younger folks seek gig-like flexibility, modern mobile-first technology, and compelling work options. They want to use an app on their phone to schedule work, not haggle with the manager over their schedule on a week-to-week basis. Likewise, employers are increasingly in need of a flexible and efficient labor model that supports the innovations (think pop-up stores, home delivery, mobile ordering, service options, etc) needed, and frankly demanded, by today’s modern customers. Mid-market organizations have never had a technology platform to manage their hourly workers and the enterprise is mired in decades-old technology that’s both user-unfriendly and wildly ineffective for managing today’s modern hourly workforce. There is a huge opportunity to modernize and upgrade how hourly workers interact with their employers and while enabling employers to be elastic, efficient, and innovative, and that is the focus of Legion.
