background

We spent years analysing the tech ecosystem for staffing and recruiting executives across North America and providing them with strategic advice on which solution to implement in order to drive efficiencies, reduce costs, improve experiences and open up new revenue streams.

It became clear to us that staffing agencies were getting squeezed on margin and were looking for ways to differentiate and provide a better service to their clients and workers.

So we decided to explore areas where the clever intervention of technology can provide outsized results.

Which lead us to

How Olas Works

The science behind the conversational, personalised AI is complex,
and kind of irrelevant. What matters is how it works for you...

1. Training

Olas bases its answers on the worker's contract, the worker's handbook, any other relevant document that the staffing agency uses and data in the agency's systems (ATS, Payroll, HRIS). We train the Olas AI model on your agency's documents and systems.

2. Testing

Once Olas is trained on your documents and systems, we collaboratively test it out. The goal isn't to "beat" the AI but to prove that Olas can provide personalised, contextualised answers for different workers based on their specific contract and data records in your systems.

3. Go-Live

Olas is lightweight and can live as a web app, a widget on your site, a mobile app or through SMS. At this point, everything is set up and ready to go. Olas goes live.

4. Ongoing Support

We don't expect any problems, but we're only a phone call away, ready to jump in and fix any challenges that do come up.

Mission

Empower staffing agencies to provide an excellent service to their clients and workers.

Be Courageous

Making that sales call, posting that report, presenting to that large company or investor, pointing out an issue or a mistake, can be daunting tasks and require us to step up and face them head-on. Be Courageous.

Be Thorough

People make mistakes. That happens. When things run smoothly, when everything and everyone gels, we can focus on having more fun and really enjoying the adventure. So we strive to make as few mistakes as possible and create a seamless process in everything that we do. Be Thorough.

Values

Create Together

If an idea is worth pursuing, we will pursue it. But in our experience, great ideas rarely come from one person. More often, one person has a seed, and others feed it with their own experiences and creativity. Share ideas. Create Together.

Be Real

Business is all about people and that is especially true in the staffing and recruitment world. By bringing our real selves to work, we encourage each other to be authentically real. Be Real.

Be Mindful

It is very easy to get caught up in doing work for the sake of doing work. We need to know where we are going, and what we are trying to achieve, in order to actually achieve important goals. Take your time, plan your actions with the big picture in mind. Be Mindful.

Commonly Asked Questions

First, Olas Identifies Who Is Asking The Question. Then The Solution Gets To Work Understanding The Question, Breaking It Into Smaller Components And Weighting Each Piece To Understand The Intent Behind The Question. That Intent Is Matched To A Library Of Previously Asked Questions. If The Question Requires Data From The Worker’s Contract Or The ATS, Olas Identifies Where That Required Data Lives And Extracts Only What Is Necessary. Then It’s A Matter Of Contextualising The Data To The Worker’s Question And Their Current Situation. This Contextualised Answer Is Fed Back To The Worker.

That Really Depends On How You Want Them To Interact With Olas. Some Agencies House Olas In A Worker Hub, Accessible Only To Those Who Are Currently On The Agency’s Payroll. Others House Olas On Their Website, Accessible To The General Public. Olas Is A Lightweight, Versatile AI Application, It Can Be Deployed In A Number Of Ways.

We Are Actively Working On ATS Integrations, To Make This Whole Experience As Smooth And Seamless As Possible. Get In Touch To Find Out If We Have A Live Integration With Your ATS.

As Standard, We Provide Analytics On Product Usage, On The Questions Asked And Recurring Patterns That Exist. Upon Request, We Can Customise Analytics To Track Those Metrics That Are Most Important To You.
