Due to the COVID-19 crisis, HelloFresh urgently needed to increase their workforce to deal with an overwhelming increase in demand for their recipe boxes.

Their main challenges were:
Find motivated staff to fill roles in packing, customer care and logistics
Cover varying job roles and 24/7 shift patterns on short notice
Recruit local candidates across multiple locations
Provide staffing flexibility for when lockdown measures are relaxed
Thanks to Coople, HelloFresh were able to instantly tap into thousands of flexible staff and scale operations quickly. Using Coople’s unique algorithm, workers with the right skills, experience, and location were matched to the multiple jobs posted and could apply right away.
