Deputy and Express Employment Professionals Partner to Modernise Work Life for up to 500,000 Hourly Employees

GLOBAL, 13th March 2024 -  Deputy, the leading global people platform for hourly work, and Express Employment Professionals, a leading global staffing provider announce a landmark strategic partnership that will transform the employee experience for hourly workers.

Deputy's intuitive technology is set to play a critical role in digitizing and transforming Express' operations. This partnership is tailored to address the needs of an increasingly digital-native, mobile-first workforce engaged in casual employment — significantly impacting businesses relying on Express for staffing solutions. Deputy's platform will enable these businesses to manage their workforce requirements more efficiently while also empowering their workers to manage their schedules and work lives seamlessly using the Deputy app.

Express Employment Professionals was established in 1983 by Robert A. Funk and William H. Stoller and has grown into one of the largest privately held staffing companies worldwide. With more than 860 franchised locations across North America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, the company is committed to connecting individuals with meaningful work opportunities and providing businesses with skilled professionals. 

Their mission is driven by a culture that values purposeful work and finding the right fit for both people and companies.

The strategic partnership between Deputy and Express is unique and rooted in shared history and values. Deputy's founding as a technology solution designed for the staffing needs in the Australian aviation industry, as well as its expertise in complex labour and compliance environments, resonates deeply with Express. 

“Today’s workforce is on the go, and employees are looking for a schedule management tool that will keep up with them,” said Bill Stoller, Express Employment International CEO. “We are excited that by establishing this relationship with Deputy and their platform, both the client and associate experience will transform to be more efficient and streamlined.” 

The strategic partnership marks a significant step for Deputy in its global expansion efforts. The potential activation of new Deputy users will further amplify Deputy’s impact on the world of hourly work.

"Today marks a significant milestone in Deputy’s journey. Our partnership with Express is not just a collaboration, it's a fusion of shared values and vision,” said Silvija Martincevic, CEO of Deputy. “We are beyond excited to join forces with a company that is as committed as we are to creating thriving workplaces in every community. Together, we're not just reimagining the future of hourly work, we're actively shaping it to be more flexible, empowering and responsive to the needs of tomorrow's workforce. "
