A large proportion of our Labourpower family lives and works in areas deeply impacted by the ongoing pandemic. During this challenging time, the safety and well-being of our team are our top priority. We are always looking for better ways to work and leverage technology, and COVID safety is no exception.

That’s why we are happy to share Scarlett has a new role, and feedback from candidates is that she is making a meaningful difference!



Scarlett is gathering details and tracking vaccination status

We’re using technology to swiftly reach out and connect with our team to gather details around their vaccination status. Scarlett is helping us comply with NSW and QLD requirements to guarantee our candidates’ vaccination status meets the needs of our clients, particularly within LGAs of concern.

Of the 3,300+ candidates Scarlett has reached, 80% have had their 1st or 2nd shots. Excellent news for the safety and availability of our talent pool and our clients that need great people!

For our candidates that are not yet vaccinated, Scarlett records their intent to be vaccinated and timing so she can follow up. She also makes a note of candidates that do not plan to be vaccinated. This system helps ensure our information is current and only appropriate candidates are considered and placed within LGAs of concern.

Scarlett is helping our team focus on filling essential roles

Through her efficient admin and 24/7 availability, Scarlett is saving our recruitment team substantial working hours. She is freeing up our recruiters to focus on matching the best candidates to the right jobs. We have a strong demand for essential workers, especially in LGAs of concern, and Scarlett is helping us fill roles faster.




Leveraging technology to meet vaccination requirements quickly and accurately is just one of the ways we are doing our best to ensure the safety of our team, workplaces, and business continuity for our clients.

Rapid Antigen Testing

Many of our clients are taking a proactive approach to COVID safety by providing rapid antigen testing onsite. Going above and beyond to prevent positive cases in the workplace is helping to safeguard our community and minimises the risk of suspending operations.

We’re thankful to be working together with fantastic clients, doing their best to protect our candidates’ health and financial well-being.

COVID Safe Environments

Safety Goes 24/7 at Labourpower – which includes a collaborative approach to COVID safety within our business and close partnership with our clients and candidates. Our HR, WHS, branch and onsite teams work collectively to ensure:

  • Each site is COVID compliant, and correct PPE is worn at all times.
  • We speak to every employee who reports feeling unwell or has come into contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID to assess potential risk. We communicate this information with our relevant client(s) immediately.
