Deputy Establishes North and South American Headquarters in Atlanta; Announces 500 Percent YoY U.S. Growth
ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) APRIL 19, 2016
Leading global workforce management solution Deputy today announced that it will expand its international presence, establishing a North and South American corporate office in Atlanta, in addition to its sales office in Los Angeles. Fueling this expansion is Deputy’s 500 percent United States year-over-year revenue growth. Founded and headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Deputy’s new bi-coastal offices will better support its growing customer base in the Americas. Deputy is currently hiring marketing, strategic partnership, customer experience and sales positions in the U.S., aiming to increase its American workforce by 100 percent in 2016.
“Atlanta has a high density of international companies and is home to some of the brightest minds in business. We’re proud to join the growing group of global headquarters here in the Peach State,” said Jason Walker, vice president of strategy and operations at Deputy who will lead the company’s North American team.
The employment market in the U.S. is comprised of 77.2 million hourly workers over the age of 16, which is almost 60 percent of the total workforce. Further, this segment alone is growing at a rate of 1 million new workers per year.
“Deputy is redefining how businesses of all sizes manage and interact with employees by providing an all-in-one, highly mobile solution that replaces multiple employee management tools. This has fueled our recent growth and will continue to drive our global go-to-market strategy. We look forward to supporting our customers located in North and South America via our new office in Atlanta,” Walker continued.

In addition to growing its own workforce, Deputy recently released two new features for its employee scheduling tool: ShiftOffer and ShiftSwap. Both features, introduced for iOS and soon to be released for Android, allow employees to apply for time off, offer their shift to available colleagues or swap their shift with other workers instantly, ensuring that the best employee is qualified to fulfill the available shift. Managers are able to turn on ‘Require Manager Approval’ so the appropriate manager can approve the changes, as well as foresee any impact on costs.
