The Essential Guide to
We are heading into the fourth industrial revolution, the technology revolution. Technology influences every part of our lives, as individuals and as business leaders. But it’s not the change itself which is causing so much trouble. Rather it is the increasing speed of that change that is challenging business leaders.
We’ve all heard the term disruption, it’s overused but accurate. Businesses that don’t challenge the status quo are slow to adapt to new operating environments, and as Klaus Schwab noted, get eaten by the fast.
Think Uber and the Taxi industry, Amazon and retailers, Netflix and video rentals. These companies didn’t just take out competitors, they fundamentally changed the industry in their image.
Adaptability and innovation aren’t owned by the product teams, organisations should embed agility at every level of their organisation. This essential guide will explain how to use ondemand staffing to become more agile and competitive.
At Weploy we find there are three main strategies companies adopt to engage on-demand staffing platforms.
An emerging trend where Weploy works in partnership with companies to pilot new organisational structures to increase productivity. Weploy helps identify non-core activities within business units or teams and then helps outsource these tasks to a Weployee or group of Weployees, ensuring full time staff are doing their jobs.
As a rapidly growing healthtec company, HotDoc has a small team working to achieve high goals. As their business expands, they come across unexpected gaps in office support that regularly create an urgent need for on-demand staff.
When the Chief of Operations found one morning he was short an Office Support worker, he used Weploy’s on-demand staffing platform to quickly post his requirements and get the right candidate in the office that same day. HotDoc has gone on to use Weploy to confidently hire for over 50 of their tactical short term needs.
Catch Group, one of Australia’s leading eCommerce organisations, uses ondemand staffing to forward plan for their ever changing workloads. In the past, the extra time spent sourcing and interviewing candidates combined with the need to find security compliant temporary staff put a serious resource drain on their hiring managers. Using Weploy, they are able to scale their team with highly vetted staff that have the right skills for the jobs their projects require.
PwC leveraged on-demand staffing to meet urgent needs within one of their innovation teams. Weploy identified atomised elements of the jobs involved and used these to filter the candidate pool.
The Weployees matched on these criterias were perfectly skilled to unburden knowledge workers from repetitive admin tasks and spend their time on more value adding activities.
We guarantee the quality of every Weployee. In fact, we are so confident in our vetting process that if your Weployee isn’t suitable for the job, we’ll replace them immediately and cover the cost of their first day. We stand by our Weployee promise due to the comprehensive vetting process. This includes two interviews with our Weploy Experience Officers, cognitive, skills and psychometric testing, as well as police and work rights checks.

We assess potential Weployees through 5 lenses
The short notice sick call...
Kathy was on her way to work at 7:30am when she received a call from her receptionist calling in sick. The reception needs to be manned at all times and with such short notice Kathy was concerned she would have to spread the responsibility of manning the desk to other team members, which would impact productivity.
The no headache solution...
Kathy logged into her Weploy dashboard and published a job in under a minute, still on her journey into work. Just 12 seconds later the job was accepted by a pre-vetted Weployee and Kathy could relax and not worry for the rest of her commute.
Changed the way she recruits temps...
Audrey arrived at the Lonely Planet office ready to go at 9am, (with gluten free donuts in hand) and hit the ground running. Based on the experience Kathy no longer uses recruitment agencies, saving her time and money and allowing her to focus on the activities that matter most to her and the business.
