SCARLETT HAS JOINED OUR COVID SAFETY TEAM!

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!


LEVERAGING TECHNOLOGY TO GUARANTEE COMPLIANCE AND SAVE TIME

 

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.

 

ENSURING COVID SAFETY FOR OUR PEOPLE, WORKPLACES AND BUSINESS CONTINUITY

 

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:

  • Labourpower has an up-to-date COVID safety plan, reviewed regularly in line with evolving government guidelines and restrictions.
  • 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.
  • Every employee that requires testing provides negative results and is cleared by HR before returning to work to safeguard the health and well-being of our community across all sites.

4 REASONS WHY FINDING WORK IS EASIER WITH LABOURPOWER

At Labourpower, we are always looking for better, faster ways to connect our candidates with the right jobs. Because searching for work can be a challenge, our team constantly strives to simplify and speed up the process.

That’s why we are thrilled to introduce the Labourpower App!

1. Gain access to our newest opportunities

Many candidates are already using our new app to select their desired shifts and create rosters that work best for their busy schedules. Our candidates can choose from available work that is the right fit for them. Now, they receive options sent directly to their phones through the app.

With more clients adding shifts every day, securing suitable work and putting together an ideal schedule has never been easier!

 

2. Information at your fingertips – anytime, anywhere

Our candidates work hard, around the clock, all across Australia.

We designed the Labourpower app to provide easy access to rostering and payslip information. Whenever and wherever it is most convenient for our team. The app is a helpful resource on the go to:

  • Pull up confirmed shift details, including timing and location, with handy map integration.
  • Reference payslip history and group certificates in one central place.

 

3. Sign in and out quickly and accurately

On-site, our candidates can sign in and out of shifts securely with the app, helping ensure the accuracy of hours worked and on-time payslips. In addition, our team can review their hours worked and recorded. Making it simple to spot and communicate potential errors and help guarantee correct payslips.

We understand how important it is to be paid appropriately. So we made sure to include features that provide visibility and checks and balances within the app.

 

4. Ongoing commitment to innovation

Our business is all about people, and the success of our customers relies on matching the right candidates to the right jobs effectively. Ultimately, everyone wins when our candidates have the tools to seize work opportunities quickly, and our clients can fill their shifts with great people.

We continue to invest in leading recruitment technology to expand our capabilities and create responsive, efficient systems that help people get to work faster. From AI to mobile to our client portal – we are looking forward to sharing how our tech is working together to improve our customer experience.

“It’s all part of our commitment to finding new and innovative ways to ensure that people find the right jobs and that our clients have the edge when it comes to attracting and retaining quality candidates.”

We are proud to introduce you to Scarlett and reveal that Labourpower is leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to improve recruitment and selection processes, fast-track candidate onboarding and enhance overall customer experience.

  • Shortlisting close to 12,000 job seekers for new roles
  • Reconnecting with 4000+ candidates in our database looking for new work
SCARLETT IS THE LATEST IN A SERIES OF INNOVATIONS

Scarlett is the latest in a series of innovations with Labourpower adding leading artificial intelligence chatbot technology into our day-to-day operations, to help continually improve our:

  • Recruiting processes
  • Compliance, and
  • Quality

As a result, she is going from strength to strength:

  • Helping to match the right candidates to the right jobs
  • Working faster-around the clock 24/7 right across Australia

In addition, Scarlett has been busy:

  • Screening candidates for the equivalent of 17 hours a day, and
  • Reconnecting with candidates for another 13 hours a day over a 7-day working week
IMPROVING CANDIDATE ENGAGEMENT

Labourpower Managing Director Luke Webber says that AI technology is the obvious choice when it comes to improving how the company onboards its candidates, builds talent pools across the country and ensures that each client gets the right fit for their business.

“In a time of unique challenges, we are keen to develop new solutions that continue to enhance our ability to drive candidate engagement as well as ease some of the pressure on the Labourpower team,” he said.

“Labourpower’s Scarlett is an effective tool for candidate engagement with the ability to chat with each person colloquially. As a chatbot she will also continually evolve to make the onboarding  and screening process easier.”

24/7 SUPPORT AUSTRALIA-WIDE

Above all, Scarlett offers 24/7 support to candidates Australia-wide. Therefore, she is available to help job seekers find the right role any time of the day or night. So this is ideal for people who need to apply for jobs or require support outside of normal business hours.

Importantly, candidates will still be able to interact with Labourpower recruiters. Scarlett will simply manage some of the more time-consuming screening and administrative tasks.

Firstly, Scarlett’s focus in the initial phase of her roll-out was on candidate screening. Including, for example, collecting basic information and responding to general questions.

And now that Scarlett is in phase two of her development, she is also providing support that extends to the onboarding phase and helps the Labourpower team:

  • Prepare candidates to be placed into jobs as quickly as possible

Therefore, automating some of these recruitment processes will also provide the Labourpower team with more time in their day to focus on candidate and client-facing tasks such as:

  • Face-to-face interviews
  • Fitness for work screenings
  • Company inductions
  • Job orders
  • Compliance,  and more.
INVESTING IN LEADING RECRUITMENT TECHNOLOGY

Luke Webber says that as Labourpower continues to expand its capabilities and invest in leading recruitment technology, the company is excited to launch Scarlett.

“People continue to be our business and by leveraging this new AI powered technology, our team now has more time to focus on improving engagement strategies, building valuable relationships and enjoying greater job satisfaction,” he said.

“It’s all part of our commitment to finding new and innovative ways to ensure that people find the right jobs and that our clients have the edge when it comes to attracting and retaining quality candidates.”
