SAN FRANCISCO, August 9, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Instawork, the leading platform for connecting businesses with skilled hourly workers, announced today that it was honored as Innovator of the Year by the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE).
The award recognizes a business achievement and community impact resulting from adaptation during a time of crisis. The honor highlights how Instawork was pivotal in the growth and adaptation of the industry during a time of change, particularly as a force multiplier in helping businesses recover from staffing shortages related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
NACE represents caterers, event planners and event professionals and presented the award during its annual conference and gala following judging from catering and event professionals.
"When pandemic labor shortages made it next to impossible for many businesses to keep their doors open and operate effectively, Instawork ensured our Partners were staffed with reliable hourly workers," said Kira Caban, Instawork's Head of Strategic Communications. "This recognition from NACE highlights our high tech high touch approach that connects businesses in catering and events with the qualified workers they need for success."
