What is the temporary work app that connects workers with companies that are looking for personnel?

It is called Zafrales and it was created in 2017 in Uruguay (although now it also works in the country) by Mauricio Pintado and Rodrigo Pereira, a veterinarian and a graduate in Agricultural Management with a postgraduate degree in HR. Both had noticed a disconnect between companies and

staff temporary

a focus on the field and agricultural campaigns mainly arose


And, with this, generate a double benefit: that the client has the necessary personnel and that the workers feel safe and well supported.

"Our projection in Argentina for this year is to have

20,000 workers at the base

and at least 30 regular clients who hire our services," said

Mauricio Pintado

, co-founder of Zafrales.

Meanwhile, he stressed that "in 4 years we have managed to


reduce the

economic and legal contingencies

of the companies that hire us. The legal framework, labor responsibility and human support mean that we have a solid base of personnel."

As Pintado explains, "in Zafrales we have active communication,

we formalize the legal payment terms

, we provide

work clothes


protective elements





and everything necessary so that the work can be carried out in the best way, so that the client can detach as much as possible from the subject”.

In reference to the

modality in hiring,

the company offers two options: the first is that of

"outsourced personnel"

where Zafrales takes care of absolutely everything, recruitment, payment of salaries, personal protection elements, transportation, etc.

The second is that of


where the client is in charge of the payroll and Zafrales recruits and does a large part of the personnel management.

protection of the personal data

of all its users.
