Thu, 21st Mar 2024

Deputy, a leading global people platform for shift work, and Express Employment Professionals, a global staffing provider, have announced a strategic partnership set to reform the working experiences of up to 500,000 global shift workers. This move indicates considerable progression for Deputy in its global growth efforts. The addition of potentially 500,000 new users to the Deputy platform equates to a 37% increase in Deputy's customer base worldwide, which currently stands at 1.4 million users, thus serving to heighten the company's influence in the shift work world.

The shift workforce today is increasingly becoming digital-native and mobile-first. This partnership will empower shift workers to manage their workforce requirements, monitor their schedules, and enhance efficiency all in the Deputy app.

Established in 1983, Express Employment Professionals has grown into one of the largest privately held staffing companies worldwide, offering over 860 franchised locations across North America, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. The company is dedicated to matching individuals with meaningful work opportunities and providing businesses with competent professionals. Rooted in shared values and history, the strategic partnership between Deputy and Express is unique.

Bill Stoller, Express Employment International CEO, speaks about the partnership, stating, "Today's workforce is on the go, and employees are looking for a schedule management tool that will keep up with them. We are excited that by establishing this relationship with Deputy and their platform, both the client and associate experience will transform to be more efficient and streamlined."

Deputy was originally established as a technology solution for staffing requirements in the Australian aviation industry, and its proficiency in intricate labour and compliance environments aligns closely with Express' mission. This and the integration of new Deputy users signify significant steps in Deputy's global expansion plans. This partnership will drastically enhance Deputy's influence in the shift work sector.


Deputy is a global people platform for shift work. Its intuitive software strengthens employer-employee connection, streamlines compliance obligations and revolutionises how shift workers and businesses operate together, creating workplaces that thrive.

Silvija Martincevic, CEO of Deputy, comments on the momentous strategic alliance. "Today marks a significant milestone in Deputy’s journey. Our partnership with Express is not just a collaboration, it's a fusion of shared values and vision. We are beyond excited to join forces with a company that is as committed as we are to creating thriving workplaces in every community. Together, we're not just reimagining the future of shift work, we're actively shaping it to be more flexible, empowering and responsive to the needs of tomorrow's workforce."
