About us
We are focused on labour, starting with the food service and hospitality sector.

We are building a holistic ecosystem-based solution to solve two problems in this sector. First, the daily volatility in staffing that the hospitality industry faces in regard to managing casual labour and second more importantly, the high annual staff turnover (70%+). Both are substantial global problems that are costly for the industry and the community around it.

With Tuki, teams have a fully integrated solution for scheduling, communications, feedback, ratings and shift support essentially all HR aspects for any shift based business.

Culture
Empathy, Initiative, Creativity, Problem Solving, Grit, Desire to Learn, Can Do Attitude and Character.These are the qualities we look for in our Tuki family members. We want someone who is hungry for growth to join us on an adventure to change the world.

Tuki’s style of management is a hybrid system that incorporates aspects of democratic decision making and consensus building. However, integrated into the system there is always a leader for each team, project and function. Leaders are chosen because of domain expertise, passion and their ability to facilitate projects. Practicing and developing a person's leadership style is an important component to being part of the Tuki community. As such, every member of the Tuki family has certain responsibilities or acts as a leader in one or more different capacities.
