Case study: how Coople recruited over 600 skilled workers in less than 48 hours

With the help of Coople, a discount supermarket recruited over 600 skilled workers in less than 48 hours.

How did Coople help?

Thanks to Coople, they were able to instantly tap into thousands of skilled workers via the platform. Using Coople’s unique algorithm, workers with the right skills and experience were matched to the supermarket’s jobs and could apply straight away. There was no need for them to deal with administration or payroll.

The challenge

  • Keeping up with COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of thousands of visitors per day
  • Recruiting extra workers for over 600 stores
  • Provide staffing flexibility for when lockdown measures are relaxed

The solution

With over 300,000 registered skilled employees, the Coople app gave the discount supermarket the opportunity to tap into a large pool of flexible workers at any given time.  Thanks to Coople’s advanced algorithm, the supermarket’s jobs were matched with motivated workers who had the right skills and experience instantly. This is what the process looked like:

  1. Job publication: the discount supermarket used the simple job creator within the app to create and post a job within minutes. They set the wage, role and experience they required
  2. Matching and reviewing: the job was then automatically matched to suitable candidates via the Coople algorithm. Workers were able to apply, and employers reviewed the applicants based on their CV and rating before hiring them
  3. Confirmation of hours: once the job was completed, the supermarket reviewed the hours. Next, the platform handled all the administration and payroll

The results

  1. Fully vetted workers – over 2,500 qualified candidates applied within a few hours
  2. Fast delivery – selection of 639 motivated workers ready to start within 48 hours
  3. Time saved – large amount of time saved on recruitment, with the ability to instantly scale down once the lockdown measures are relaxed
