  • TempBuddy, an Irish tech company that develops software designed to help employers manage temporary staff, has been revealed as the winner of the European Social StartUp Award at the StartUp Europe Awards in Brussels.

    The annual awards ceremony, which is promoted by the European Commission and bills itself as “The Eurovision for Startups”, recognises the best European startups in ten different award categories, including fintech, healthtech, cleantech and social technology.

    Mairead McGuinness, Vice President of the European Parliament, said: “It is fantastic to see an Irish StartUp being recognised on the European stage for their hard work and technological innovation. 

    Ireland has a lot to offer the European marketplace and, with the backing of the StartUp Europe Accelerator of Finnova Foundation, Roderick and the TempBuddy team will have access to a highly experienced network helping them expand even further internationally. This is great news for TempBuddy and for Ireland’s participation in the European and international marketplace.”

    Roderick Smyth, CEO and founder, TempBuddy, added: “Our vision is to make life easier for the flexible workforce, helping more people find temporary work when and where they want. By enabling staffing organisations and hiring managers to ‘Uberise’ their candidate database through real-time availability, we help them to compete in the on-demand economy without sacrificing workers’ employment rights.”

    Founded in Dublin in 2013, TempBuddy has grown at an impressive rate and the company’s platform now enables more than 1,500 clients on three continents to track and manage their contingent workforce. The startup also offers a mobile app for temporary workers.
