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.
