The on-demand staffing industry is booming right now. More and more businesses want to streamline the cost and time it takes to hire personnel and operate more efficiently.

While a lot of companies have embraced the digitisation of recruitment, many others are still using the old school, more traditional approach. The problem with this is that most recruitment agencies aren’t equipped to deal with the increase in demand during peak seasons.

Hiring staff for the summer and Christmas months can be a real challenge. As can finding replacement staff at short notice when employees call in sick or can’t get to work.

You need a reliable way to fill open positions as soon as the situation arises.

An effective recruitment solution for all your staffing needs

Coople is revolutionising the world of work by offering a scalable and effective recruitment solution that seamlessly connects companies and potential part-time employees in line with demand.

Imagine for a moment that it’s the busiest day of the month in one of your busiest locations and you’re short of staff. What to do?

You could struggle on with an understaffed team, risking a poor customer experience and a loss in sales. Not great.

Another option would be to spend all morning calling everyone you can think of for help. Also not great.

Or, you could take five to ten minutes to outline your requirements in a simple desktop or mobile form. Almost immediately your phone will start pinging with alerts of qualified people who are available to start work right away.

Coople is addressing three key pain points by:

  1. Dealing with absenteeism (planned and unplanned)
  2. Helping you manage the recruitment process more efficiently
  3. Drastically reducing the time spent on administration

Our technology matches your exact job criteria with the right talent to find available candidates (Cooplers). Go ahead and give it a try. You can hire staff in three simple steps.

1. Publish your job

Create your job in minutes either online or by using the Coople Hire app. Set the wage, role and the experience you require. Workers who match your requirements will be instantly notified and can apply right away.

2. Review applicants

With full access to worker profiles, which include everything from their CV to their ratings from other companies, you can feel confident that you’ll choose the right person for the job.

3. Confirm hours

At the end of the shift, workers send you their hours to review. You only ever pay for the hours worked, and only once you have confirmed them.

Benefits you can expect from recruiting through Coople

Less effort – an agency won’t know your business as well as you do. Specify your own requirements direct to the market – no middleman.

Save time – building up a talent pool takes years. Coople scales to the needs of your business and is available instantly.

Low risk – recruiting from our pre-screened Cooplers cuts the risk of a bad hire.
