Detailed Description

Update

HaveMyShift is a tool that allows hourly shift workers to trade shifts online. The company is using a grassroots approach and encourages employees to sign up and trade shifts with or without the blessing of the company itself.

HaveMyShift is seeing strong viral adoption in the Chicago area market where, for example, 80% of Starbucks stores there already use the application. Many of the listings offer "bonus money" to tempt others who work for the same employer to pick up a shift, and last-minute shift changes can be filled with paid emergency promotional placement.

HaveMyShift makes money by taking a percentage of the bonuses offered to other workers to cover a shift. Absenteeism costs US employers more than $200M every day.
