We want to transform the workplace by creating connection

If work is a tree, the roots (workers) anchor the tree and bring life to it. The better the roots, the healthier the tree. Built on Kaitiakitanga (shared ownership) - we want to inspire and nurture meaningful connection and transform workplaces with a worker centric approach to building business.

Analog v Digital

My earliest memories are as a kid in the jungles of Papua New Guinea - the air was thick with smoke from housefires and the rainforest fog. I grew up in a world that was tangible, analog - physical. If you wanted to build something or do something, the only barrier was your choice. I grew up alongside natives and identified as part of their tribe - we lived primal, simple lives that started and ended with the sun.

Today we live in digital jungles in virtual worlds. We are faced with an onslaught of intangible, meta bytes of digital noise. We struggle to connect on deeper levels and we live with a digital sun that has no sunset - we are contantly awash in its LED glow. This environment  disconnects and fragments our focus. I observe that we are losing our connections with things that are meaningful to us.

Provide is on a mission  to create meaning through shared connection in the workplace. Our focus is work because it is where we spend the majority of our waking hours. It's also the place where we need to feel valued and have meaning - to find our place among colleagues, managers, and business owners.

Our tools/software are digital, but we aim to use that tech to enable analog, face to face connection, and simplify as much of the hiring process as possible. I hope to connect with as many of you as I can on the journey!

How do I choose who to hire?
Great question. The most important things to look at are previous experience and reliability ratings.This information will allow you to asses how suitable a worker is for your current role, and if they seem like a good fit for your business.
I've hired someone, what's next?
Once you're hired someone it's always nice to drop them a quick message to introduce yourself and double check they have all the information required before the beginning of the shift. This could include things like travel requirements or uniform preferences!
Can I see peoples right to work?
Legally we are not permitted to display this information. However before anyone can complete a shift they must complete a 'right to work check', so there's no need to worry.
How can I see what experience people have?
Each worker has a complete profile including their skills and experience, as well as shift ratings. You can even check out their reliability, so you can feel totally confident when putting together the perfect team.
What's the Worker score?
Your reliability rating will change according to your behaviour on provide. When you start on provide, your reliability is 'Good'. As you work more shifts, it will improve, unless you cancel late or no show a shift (that's not great).
What happens if I miss a shift?
Not turning up to a shift is serious. If you apply for a shift and are hired, you are expected to turn up and work the shift. If a hirer reports you as absent from a shift, you will get a 'no show' added to your profile, and your reliability rating will go down significantly. We reserves the right to suspend workers who no show at any time.
