How Boutique Workplace consistently fill ad hoc roles with reliable, favourite workers.

How Boutique Workplace consistently fill ad hoc roles with reliable, favourite workers.

Boutique Workplace trusts Coople to consistently provide high-quality staff for their many serviced offices across London. Hiring staff has become seamless since they have built a strong pool of reliable workers to choose from for last minute absences and holiday covers.

How did Coople help?

When faced with planned and unplanned absences, Boutique Workplace needed a reliable staffing solution to ensure they were always fully covered. Coople developed a long-standing relationship with Boutique Workplace, who trusts Coople to access reliable workers as and when needed. Building a strong pool of over 80 high-quality favourite workers offers consistency in staff who can work across all their central London sites to cover any absences.

Additionally, they used Coople’s ‘Smart Hire’ feature, which means that they successfully hired a pool of Coople’s flexible workers before hiring the best ones into full-time roles. This ‘try and hire’ solution allowed both sides to work together and ensure that they were suited before committing to permanent placements.

The challenge

  • Ability to cover planned and unplanned absences (often at short notice) across 35 sites in the Greater London area
  • Access to the same high-quality workers over long periods of time, even several years
  • Ability to trial candidates for longer periods of time before offering them permanent positions within their team

The solution

Boutique Workplace embraced the Coople platform to resolve their staffing challenges with temp to perm hires. They could instantly tap into a large pool of motivated, flexible workers at any given time. The advanced Coople algorithm made it easy to quickly match Boutique Workplace’s jobs with high quality, skilled workers, sometimes at short notice. This is what the process looked like:

Job publication: Boutique Workplace used the simple job creator in the app to create and post jobs in minutes. They set the wage, role and the experience they required.

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

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

The results

Fully vetted workers: built a strong pool of over 80 high-quality favourite workers, who can work across all their central London sites

Time and cost efficiency: successfully recruited a handful of quality candidates on a temp to perm basis

Fast delivery: found and hired motivated, skilled workers across a variety of job profiles at short notice.
