Ride-sharing giant Uber is testing a new kind of app.

A new on-demand labor service called "Uber works" in Chicago.

Similar to a temp agency, Uber works would offer on-demand staffing for events and corporate functions.

That's according to a person familiar with the pilot program.

This would expand the ride-hailing giant beyond the transportation realm for the first time.

Uber made its name as a ride-based platform but expanded in recent years to offer food delivery and integrate other forms of transportation.
