Drake’s, the men’s clothing store, used Coople’s platform to find and hire quality, experienced warehouse staff. With Coople, they were able to instantly access thousands of skilled, vetted workers via the Coople for Business App and online platform, allowing Drake’s to fulfill their hiring needs at short notice. Additionally, thanks to Coople’s flexibility, Drake’s were able to trial candidates before hiring them into their permanent team.

How did Coople help Drake’s find experienced warehouse staff?

Coople connected Drake’s to a large pool of motivated, quality workers, allowing Drake’s to source the right hires to join as long-term team members. With the flexibility of Coople’s on-demand staffing platform, Drake’s were able to easily manage and scale up or down as and when needed to avoid fixed costs.

The challenge

  • Ability to trial candidates for longer periods of time before offering them permanent positions within their team
  • Finding and hiring reliable, quality staff during peak seasons
  • Having the ability to scale up or down as needed, often at short notice

The solution

With the use of Coople’s unique algorithm, Drake’s successfully hired several professional, experienced warehouse staff on a temporary to full-time basis. Coople provided the flexibility to adjust team sizes and change workers based on fit when needed. This is what the process looked like:

Job publication: Drake’s used the simple in-app job creator to create and post jobs in minutes. They selected the wage, role and experience they required, as well as the number of workers needed.

Matching and reviewing: the job was then automatically matched via the Coople algorithm. The workers were able to apply and Drake’s reviewed the applicants based on their CV and ratings before hiring them.

Confirmation of hours: once the job was completed, Drake’s reviewed the hours. Next, the platform handled all the administration and payroll. Drake’s then added their best temporary workers to their ‘favourites’ pool.

The results

Fully vetted workers: hired up to 8 Cooplers per day during peak season before building a pool of over 25 temporary, permanent and flexible workers.

Time and cost efficiency: large amount of time saved on recruiting and the ability to flex their workforce.

Fast delivery: quickly found and hired skilled workers with expert level industry experience at short notice.
