How an On-Demand Labor Platform is Solving the Labor Shortage with Noah Labhart

Veryable just might be the solution to the workforce shortage challenges we as manufacturing leaders are all too aware of. Veryable is an on-demand marketplace for manufacturing labor, essentially making it “The Uber of the Factory Floor.” You can ramp up and ramp down your workforce as needed, while operators that use the platform have the benefit of creating a flexible work schedule. It’s a win-win for both the manufacturers and the people that keep those plants running.

Veryable Co-Founder and CTO Noah Labhart jumps on the show this week to share his own story going from developer to company co-founder, as well as some stories about the Veryable platform that really showcase its power to bring manufacturing into the 21st century by taking on one of the biggest issues facing manufacturers today.

3 Quick Things from this Episode

  1. When starting a business, take baby steps before attempting a sprint. Focus on one step at a time, win at that, and then move on to the next.
  2. Manufacturing businesses often have to act quickly, so an on-demand platform for workers is one way to cover spikes in demand.
  3. An on-demand platform like Veryable can provide the flexibility that busy workers need. Not everyone can fit in a 9-5 job, so that’s where Veryable comes in handy.
