1. Ensure productivity with integrated of Google Maps
Wanting to focus on hiring locally seems like a great idea, but how can you do this? With Jombone’s staffing platform, you can use the built in Google Maps tool to map out your future candidate’s route. Check to see how far away a candidate is, and how they’re going to get to work. This can help you plan shifts accordingly and organize an employee’s schedule considerately.

Additionally, Jombone’s staffing platform allows you to view candidates in a map view. This way when you’re looking for candidates you can see where all candidates are located nearby. A large problem in the blue-collar industry is no-shows. With a shorter commute, your workers are prone to avoid blowing off their shift, enabling operational excellence and equipping your company with a reliable workforce.
2. Just in time hiring
An important advantage of hiring locally means enabling just in time hiring. When short-notice deadlines arise and you need more hands on the site immediately, a local workforce can aid you.

Once you’ve leveraged your local workforce, managing them is the next big task on your plate. On the Jombone staffing platform you can complete the hiring process, but the capabilities go beyond just that.
