How Can You Book Reliable, High Quality and Flexible Temporary Staff On-Demand?

3 min readMay 5, 2021


For a long time, the battle to secure high quality, reliable yet flexible temporary staff seemed to be endless. Just when you think you have a good relationship with a temporary worker you’re let down last minute on a busy day and have to ‘manage’.

Added to that, finding a provider which can provide reliable and flexible temporary workers at peak times can be a challenge. Some require minimum run times or just can’t be contacted when you really need them. Others are unable to provide the flexibility you are seeking.

It is estimated that the UAE hospitality market is looking at $800 million in inappropriate staffing losses a year. This is attributed to profit loss during the low season through overstaffing and loss of revenue in the high season through understaffing. Ogram is dedicated to changing this through the provision of adaptable, high calibre, on-demand temporary staff.

How Do Ogram Know What They Are Doing?

Ogram is the brainchild of two former restaurateurs who experienced their own frustrations in sourcing staff. Noting the lost revenues and profits were due to seasonally unsuitable headcounts, Ogram’s founders combined their industry experiences and knowledge with the technological tools developing in this fourth Industrial Revolution.

The Future of Work Is Digital

Now that the pandemic has effectively fast-tracked the acceptance of digital working and transactions, the vision and foresight of Ogram to operate in a digital first environment enabled them to weather the events of the 2020 pandemic better than most.

In MENA, Ogram are the largest digital player. They are market leaders in their use of the Global Human Cloud market (digital platforms that enable digital work engagements).

For clients, this meant that Ogram and Ogrammers continued to provide support as businesses navigated the consequential vagaries and disruptions that the new rules and regulations to stem the spread of COVID rapidly brought in.

Ogram’s agile and technological approach allowed them to continue to provide reliable, flexible on-demand staff. Ogram consistently provide 7x more shifts than their closest regional competitor with the capability of deploying quality staff at short notice. Furthermore, Ogram provide the opportunity to ‘scale-up’ requirements, with no cap.

2020 Ogram Technology

In November 2020, Ogram released new tech platforms that improved their candidate / requirement matching speed by 160x. It also saw 6,000 new Ogrammers register in just 7 weeks from the launch. Businesses can match with suitable, vetted Ogrammers minutes after the initial request has been submitted; with average client response time being less than 1 hour and some posts taking just 3 minutes to fill.

This flexible take on temporary recruitment gives business the ability to focus on other matters in hand as Ogram also alleviates payroll admin and provides easy to use clock in/ clock out tools.

2021 Ogram Technology

As forward thinkers, planners and actors on an ever changing world stage, Ogram are not going to rest on their laurels but will continue to provide an effective interactive P2P service.

The new product features scheduled will enhance reliability and flexibility via pricing algorithms, rating features that will enhance quality and geo attendance management. To facilitate Ogrammers’ experiences and ensure their productivity and reliability, automated payments will be issued bi-monthly and new recognition ratings will be enabled.

Final Thought

Ogram’s forwarded thinking approach coupled with their industry knowledge and experience assures clients that they will receive high calibre, flexible staff on-demand.

That Ogram had already assumed a B2B Human Cloud approach meant that they swiftly adapted to the quickly changing dynamic marketplace of 2020 and maintained quality and reliability of service.

The importance of the Human Cloud approach has been reinforced by the advent of COVID and we see no sign of it going away. Ogram is committed to enhancing client experience and absolving the traditional problems of temporary staff quality, availability and inflexibility through use of agile, dynamic technology.
