Company Description

Founded in 2015 and recognized by Fast Company as the 8th most innovative workplace company of 2020, Bluecrew is the first hourly workforce-as-a-service provider combining W-2 labor, a workforce management platform, and data + analytics for workplaces who have hourly workers and fluctuating demand.

Our hourly workers - we call them Crew Members - are Bluecrew’s lifeblood. We employ thousands of W-2 workers who are individually assessed and fully compliant W-2 employees, and are kept engaged through a loyalty program focused on upskilling and career growth. Plus, Bluecrew’s matching technology pairs workers that are the best fit for the job based on role requirements and worker preferences. Working together, workplaces get the most reliable and qualified workers, keeping productivity predictable and efficient.

For workplaces, Bluecrew offers two programs: Elastic Hourly Workforce and Worker Hosting. Elastic Hourly Workforce is our workforce as a service offering that combines work-ready W-2 hourly workers, integrated workforce management technology, and actionable data and analytics to solve the challenge of changing hourly labor needs based on fluctuating demand. Bluecrew’s Worker Hosting increases workforce flexibility and reduces labor costs with outsourced employee administration and modern workforce management technology. A workplace’s existing roster of workers are quickly onboarded as W-2 employees of Bluecrew and placed on schedules and long-term assignments. Bluecrew handles worker’s comp, FICA, benefits administration, payroll, and more.
