Local start-up Cidekick Sdn Bhd, a temporary manpower solutions provider, plans to expand nationwide and build a mobile app after receiving RM775,000 in seed funding from Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd’s DEQ800 programme.

Cidekick CEO and founder Philip Phua said the planned mobile app would allow both employers and temporary workers to carry out a transparent process and hasslefree engagements.

He said the company aims to be more than just a resume collecting portal for temporary manpower and to help companies address operational cost challenges with access to temporary talents.

He said traditional staffing agencies took higher commissions which could result in businesses paying more for less quality or workers being paid less than what they should be entitled.
