What customers are saying about HourWork.
“We use HourWork to maintain regular check-ins with our people. Before, we didn’t have a way of getting feedback without asking and we weren't doing that with any consistency. Now, we get great information that helps us make better decisions.”
Dustin RiddleDirector of Operations, Great American Hospitality, Sonic Franchise
“HourWork allows us to correct people issues sooner. They show us patterns in our stores so we can fix issues and replicate the things we are doing well. We weren't seeing the entire picture before. HourWork helps us see it now.”
Tabitha VanNockerArea Supervisor, Schulz Family, LLS & MAS, Inc., McDonald's Owner Operator
“HourWork is a great retention tool that helps us connect better with our employees by meeting them where they spend their time: Their phone! We are able to boost employee morale while encouraging more communication to better understand our employees' needs. Not to mention they have a cool recruitment tool that you can use when you need.”
