What it is: Discover the ideal way to work. Developed by Ceridian, a global HCM leader, Ideal is an on-demand marketplace for flexible work. Ideal empowers organizations to build flexibility and scale to changing demand by tapping into new, diversified talent pools and bringing them into a total talent workforce strategy. Ideal gives people gig-like flexibility without sacrificing security and benefits. Ideal workers choose when and where they work, get same-day pay and join the Ideal community as a W-2 employee. Ideal handles worker administration, including sourcing, onboarding, background checks, I-9, payroll and more, making it the ideal experience for everyone.
Why we like it: Job openings in healthcare, food and trade services have continued to pressure HR leaders this year. These industries are also the ones that can benefit most from a flexible workforce. Ideal Talent Marketplace offers solutions for organizations seeking contingent workers and workers looking for flexible gig opportunities. We applaud that the app meets consumer-grade standards, and both large and small companies can implement it in less than a day to address immediate needs and relieve understaffing with agility. Additionally, employees can work at multiple companies and are paid instantly after every shift, which should help attract a diverse talent pool.
