The challenge for fast-paced companies

Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas are expected to break records for e-commerce retailers in 2020.

The unprecedented peaks seen this year have left even some of Australia’s leading supply chains scrambling to keep up with demand.

Join leading businesses reinventing how they hire

- Rob Hurn, Warehouse Manager - VinoMofo

We used to have to email back and forth with multiple agencies to get the staff we needed.

Sidekicker has made it an absolute breeze to meet our requirements for peak periods.

I was also shocked by how good the quality of staff were - they were so highly motivated that they actually broke records on our production line.

- Greg Beilby, CEO, PACT Group

Switching to Sidekicker has been easy–their team has ensured a seamless implementation, and they now provide PACT with 250-300 daily workers across 8 sites.

Sidekicker's real-time reporting allows us to measure costs in real-time, and their digital WHS systems give us transparency and peace of mind that our agency labour is compliant. We've also seen an improvement in staff quality and reduced time to fill gaps in rosters from 24+ hours to a couple of hours.

- Adam Smith, Warehouse Manager - Linen House

Sidekicker is by far the best way to hire extra staff in the warehouse to support our busy periods. Their staff are consistently high quality and always arrive ready and motivated to work.

Utilising Sidekicker means we don’t have to have an internal fixed head count to manage season roles, and allows us to stay flexible but ensure we’re always sufficiently supported in the warehouse to maintain output.

- Tom van der Linden, Head of Operations, HelloFresh

As we continue to expand our operations, we’ve needed to scale our frontline workforce quickly. Working with Sidekicker has enabled us to do this, whilst at the same time, ensuring a high level of quality and consistency with our staffing.

The team at Sidekicker provide exceptional service, whilst their technology provides unparalleled visibility into what’s happening in our casual workforce.

- Meggan Ellis, Head of People & Culture - Youfoodz

Sidekicker essentially empowers us to have an external workforce available to hire when we need extra staff in our DC during peaks in demand. We also can avoid having to waste time training new temps because their retention is so high and it’s so easy to rehire the same workers again and again. 

Plus Sidekicker saves us hours of manual admin every week.
