Choura Events builds today’s top events and experiences from the ground up – from large tents and structures to multi-day festivals and events such as Coachella and Stagecoach, The Grammys, BNP Parabis Tennis Open, and the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. Choura has also been recognized by L.A. Business Journal as one of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Los Angeles for three consecutive years.
Same-day booking of quality workforce
Based on the varied types of custom events they produce, Choura can find themselves working on 15 different jobsites on any given day. As demand for their event services continues to grow, so does their need for additional workers – fast.
Due to the tight timelines for each event, it is imperative that Choura has qualified installers to assist. Jeff Ginter, Choura’s Operations Manager, found that most temp labor providers “had difficulty accommodating the short turnaround and providing workers with the right skillsets.” Given the unpredictable nature of the events world, they needed help finding solid, reliable workers on a daily basis.
Wonolo figured out a way to incorporate technology to serve our on-demand needs, which sets them apart from the rest. The event world is constantly changing, so having Wonolo when plans shift has been a huge help for us.”
“Wonolo’s secret sauce is the ability to connect us with workers within a very quick time frame, so if something comes up, we know we can rely on their team to connect us with labor within 1-2 hours. That’s what separates Wonolo from the rest,” says Ginter.
The flexibility and on-demand service that Wonolo’s platform provides is a game-changer. “The ease of reposting jobs through templates and managing our search for on-demand labor, attendance, and performance through the app has helped make our process more efficient.”
Choura gained much more than they bargained for when they looked to Wonolo to find last-minute workers. “I definitely see the value in Wonolo and think their biggest value adds are their technology and affordability. I save time by easily reposting jobs and rating workers all within their platform, and Wonolo is half the cost of other staffing options.” In addition, they also use Wonolo to connect with workers who are interested in joining Choura on a longer-term basis or as employees. “It’s also a simple process to create Preferred Teams and consistently invite back good workers and connect with future talent with temp-to-hire flexibility.”
