ATLANTA, GA, January 17, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Hyson brings over 20 years of combined experience as both an executive in the staffing industry and staffing-tech industry. She has incredible passion and drive for leadership, innovation, and building world class service organizations and economies of scale. She will be instrumental in augmenting marketing, business development and partnership programs needed to help guide WorkN through its next phase of growth. WorkN CEO and cofounder Jakob Rohn said: “We are thrilled to have Ericka join our executive leadership team. Ericka will help WorkN set the stage for tremendous success partnering with customers to achieve digital transformation. Bringing on someone of Ericka’s caliber should signal that online staffing has truly arrived as mainstream technology. We all knew it was ‘coming soon’ but we have certainly crossed from future to present tense.”

“I am honored to join Jake, Steve, and the WorkN team and to be a part of shaping the future of how the staffing industry is adapting and shifting into a holistic mobile candidate experience,” said Hyson. “I am looking forward to engaging with our clients as a true partner in delivering incredible experiences up the value chain to their customers and workers. Not only is WorkN a platform for on demand staffing, it is a mobile platform that can be customized to create a seamless, centralized mobile candidate/worker experience. There are so many tools available in staffing firms’ tech-stack. WorkN separates itself as the leading platform bringing together on-demand functionality, ATS integrations, and mobile features – coupled with third party vendors – to offer a central place to engage with talent. This is the new paradigm for staffing.”

She has been honored by the Charlotte Business Journal with a 2018 Women in Business Award and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Technology Association.

After developing multiple startups together, and seeing the obvious needs in the labor-management industry, they created the WorkN solution to “connect the dots”, resulting in a mobile platform that is transforming the staffing industry. WorkN is private-labeled, integrates with your ATS and is designed to optimize labor across multiple industry sectors, turning the labor force complexities into an easy, simple solution.
