Hyre is based in Toronto and Ottawa, Canada. Hyre seeks to effectively eliminate the need for an event staffing agency by putting the power back in the hands of those involved – event staff and event organizers. Hyre is an online marketplace that operates by connecting event organizers directly with independently contracted event staff – improving their staff management and overall experience level to their customers. Event staff can create their own profiles, post their availability and specify their desired hourly rate. Event organizers have control over their budget, staffs' skills and rate staffs' performance after the event. Hyre charges event staff a 20 percent fee on the hourly wages they earn; its online marketplace allows event staff to earn higher wages while greatly reducing the costs for event organizers.
