According to a variety of industry sources, Uber is testing an on-demand staffing business which they will call Uber Works. The company is apparently testing a variety of services to add value to their brand.
The current service would allow companies to hire for part time positions including security guards and waitrons for corporate events and related functions. It is claimed that this service will not compete with popular short-term staffing sites like Task Rabbit and "gig" sites like Fiverr and others.
The company will not confirm whether this will be a long-term business or a short-term test.
The business is currently in trial in Los Angeles.
