HYR is a staffing app for the gig economy that allows companies to "instantly connect with skilled and experienced gig workers to fill hourly paid shifts." Since COVID-19 has severely impacted the way we work, as well as the safety of many, HYR has expanded and repurposed its platform to serve and assist not-for-profit and government organizations in their search for help. This new feature by the staffing app is answering the need for volunteers amid the global pandemic in Canada. In addition to this, HYR is "helping connect displaced workers to essential service industries." Not only does this service fill a gap, but it also creates a sense of purpose for people who feel incredibly displaced in this time of uncertainty.
