Rehiring and Talent Pools

2 Min Read

Our developers are constantly working on improvements that will enhance the Weploy platform and help our customers operate with optimal agility. The latest updates will improve the speed and seamlessness of the hiring process, so that managers can get back to the strategic work, critical thinking and specialised projects that will help them improve business operations and continue providing top quality Customer Service.

In these uncertain times, organisations must ensure they are running as efficiently as possible and saving costs wherever possible. Weployees will help to safeguard your central team and scale up on demand whilst eliminating agency fees and extra costs associated with traditional recruiters.  

Through Weploy you can seamlessly rehire staff who have worked at your organisation before using your 'Pool'. Having a talent pool to dip in to provides added peace of mind that the Weployee is able to do the job. They will have proven they are a cultural fit, have prior knowledge of your organisation and you will have already spent time training them on your company policies, processes and procedures.

The Benefits

  • See at a glance, which of your past Weployees are available (even without needing to post out a job)
  • Send a job offer out to a customisable list of your past employees and select your preferred candidate to hire
  • You can post offer out to a past Weployee even if they worked for another department or hiring manager (we show who they worked for previously and when they last worked at your organisation) so you can rehire staff into your team that have working knowledge of other areas of your business
  • Rehire works with Job Repost so in less than 10 seconds, you can post a repeat job offer to a past Weployee, it is that simple! Quicker than a phone call

Rehire always uses the Select functionality in the centre of the above image - so you send out your job offers to a pool of past Weployees, and once they respond to the offer you are able to select your preferred candidate

Product Updates: User Permissions and Dashboards

We are constantly releasing new updates and features that help make it even easier to use Weploy. Empowering organisations to manage their contingent workforce more effectively, we'd like to introduce the latest updates: User Permissions and Meaningful Dashboard. Here's a little more about what this means for you...

Rapid Reposting & Bulk Timesheets

Delivering on our mission to create a fearless and empowered world of work, we’ve made some helpful new updates to the platform that will enhance the user experience for employers in the Customer Service industry. We know that Customer Experience leaders are passionate about delivering an absolute best in class service for their customers and striving for increased NPS scores, whilst building teams and working on complex, strategic initiatives that will contribute to wider business goals. By reducing the time it takes to hire temp staff (Weployees) and improve the efficiency of approving timesheets once jobs are complete, Customer Experience leaders will have their time freed up from administrative duties to work on the bigger projects that really matter to the business. 

Update 1: Rapid Reposting 

We’re delighted to introduce: Rapid Reposting! Now, when posting a job that you’ve already posted before, the “Rapid Repost” option allows you to choose whether to draft a new job with special details, or choose a saved template job from previous job postings. 

Rapid Repost

 

An overview of your saved templates will display the location and Job Title at a glance, or you can click into “Details” and a pop up displays all the details of the previous job card, including Dates, Tasks and Systems Experience as seen here:

Job Details

Simply hit “Choose and Review” to continue with this job posting, then all you need to do is decide whether you’d like to post it as a Direct or Select job like you did at the very beginning:

SelectDirect - RR…..and whichever option you choose, scroll down and the job form screen will be pre populated with all the details of your previous job. Note: Make sure you add in the new time and dates for when you want this job to start. 

Calendar Dates-1

Don’t forget to double check the location if you have multiple saved on the platform, and also the number of Weployees requested as this can vary from job to job.

Confirm Box

Finally, you’ll be invited to confirm by hitting “Publish Job” and the reposted job is now live and ready to be sent out to our community. Now you can make quick hires with more efficiency and minimal clicks! Look at you go! 

 

Update 2: Bulk Timesheeting 

This feature was introduced after feedback from our clients at Deliveroo. For high volume roles at busy Contact Centres, the extra clicks required to approve Weployee timesheets individually was taking up precious time. 

Bulk Timesheeting

Now, you can click on the Timesheets page to view each timesheet awaiting approval listed together in one place with a checkbox feature alongside each. 

Timesheets

Click on a Job entry to glance over and review the hours worked in a pop up, without having to navigate away….

EH Timesheet details

Then you can simply select the checkbox alongside each one you’re happy with and approve outstanding timesheets in bulk. 

Checkboxes

Confirm timesheetspayment-1

The selected timesheets will consolidate themselves and invite you to confirm the total outstanding amount required in one invoice with the full cost breakdown displayed. 

 

 

 

 

 

And voila, you’re done! The Weployees will be paid in 10 business days, and you can go back to worrying about what to have for lunch instead of clicking around approving timesheet requests. Woohoo! 

Timesheet Approved

The eagle eyed, or veteran Weployers amongst you may notice our super cool new illustrations too which, (in our humble opinion) make the whole User Experience feel that little bit more pleasurable... and dare we say it, a lot less like work!

We hope you agree. As always, we’re open to feedback and love hearing from our community of Weployers and Weployees, so if you have any to share, feel free to get in touch with us on our social channels. Alternatively, if you’d like to see the new features in action for yourself, book a demo with a member of our Customer Success team.
