Picnic Box

The client

Picnic Box is one of Auckland’s freshest and most innovative companies, selling pre-packaged picnic boxes for corporate events, weddings or any type of social gathering.

Picnic Box has been using Sidekicker as their temporary staffing agency hiring roles varying from events assistants to chefs and kitchen hands, and from promotional staff to admin and office support staff in Auckland.

The challenges

Recruitment admin

Founder of Picnic Box, Diane Stanbra, has always dreaded the process of hiring casual staff due to the large amount of administration involved. From posting job advertisements to screening and interview processes, and onboarding new staff, this can take a lot of time and resources.

The solution

Outsourcing casual labour hire

Sidekicker alleviated the administration load, and changed the way she goes about temporary staffing.

Diane has tapped into Sidekicker’s pool of pre-vetted, experienced and highly skilled hospitality staff to help at special events such as trade shows, and scooping ice cream at the Kapiti Container on Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. She is consistently impressed with the talent that she selects to work her projects.

"Posting a job on Sidekicker could not be easier, and the platform is very user friendly."

The results

Finding top quality talent for one-off projects on short notice has never been easier for Picnic Box.

"Even when Sidekicks are completely thrown in the deep end and they perform amazingly. Excellent customer service, friendly, happy and helpful – everything you could ask for."

Sidekicker has allowed Diane to spend more time on the most important part of her business – providing delicious picnic boxes and working with new customers – and less time for recruitment and managing workers.

"I don’t think about hiring staff now. I’m excited about the possibilities of what Picnic Box can do – we’re now able to get great staff for exactly what we need, when we need it."
