The automotive industry has quickly become the fastest growing segment at Veryable, as automotive part suppliers and manufacturers across the country are ditching the old way of doing things, and leveraging a new labor paradigm that allows them to adjust their capacity instantaneously and at the click of a button to address fluctuating and unpredictable customer demands.  

Our on-demand marketplace for warehousing, logistics, and manufacturing labor connects businesses with high-quality workers at the click of a button, enabling businesses to create a flexible extension of their fixed workforce called a labor pool. Building your labor pool enables higher productivity and a competitive edge.  For workers, Veryable provides immediate access to work, the ability to control their own schedule, opportunities to build new skills, and best of all, next-day pay.

Gain the capacity you need, exactly when you need it. When you build a labor pool with on-demand labor, you’ll have both the confidence and the unlimited flexible capacity to take on anything that comes your way. That's how you reach new levels of efficiency and productivity and gain an edge on your competition.

Veryable is about more than labor, it is the operational strategy - developed by ops leaders and for ops leaders, that is driving businesses forward. As we continue to enhance our approach to better meet the specific requirements of the automotive industry, our commitment remains steadfast in delivering unparalleled solutions for operational streamlining, increased productivity, and enhanced on-time delivery rates.

Case Studies



In 2022 a tier one automotive supplier started using Veryable’s on-demand labor marketplace at one of their advanced manufacturing facilities in semi-rural Michigan. The plant had been facing high turnover in recent years as factors including demographic shifts, worker preferences, and increased local competition impacted the local workforce. These challenges were compounded by increased variability in production demand due to supply chain constraints.

The company had used Veryable in another region and knew that the model worked. The plant leadership committed to using Veryable as a core component of their labor strategy, even though they were located in a new district with less than 200 operators within a 100 mile radius of the facility.


The Michigan plant began posting single-shift ops starting in early March 2022. While initial traction was slow, the company trusted in the process and continued to consistently post ops. After the first two months of posting, an inflection point was hit that saw the number of ops increase to over 100 filled per week.

7 months later, this supplier now has a vetted “bench strength” of over 500 Operators that it can tap into, daily, to handle all its demand variation. Each area manager can review their demand forecast and fluctuate their headcount accordingly with an average 49 hours of reaction time. Operators are being used at this plant to perform simple tasks such as material handling as well as more complex tasks such as operating machinery and production cells. In most cases, plant leadership has been able to streamline training to get operators up to speed quickly at the beginning of their ops.

After 7 months of using on-demand labor in this new district, this supplier has realized an estimated $1.8MM in value 

Key Success Factors

The key to this company’s success has been the buy-in from their leadership team. The leadership team understood the concept, the ultimate end-state goal, and was willing to commit to working through the process of building a labor pool from scratch. These leaders have been able look past traditional approaches to labor and, as a result, have achieved one of the most agile workforces in the automotive sector.
