Ocado's Journey to Seamless Hiring with Automation

Discover how Ocado, a leading UK retailer, harnessed the power of Talkpush to supercharge its recruitment process, achieving a remarkable 5x increase in application completion rates with a dramatic improvement in the candidate experience.

Transforming a Slow and Cumbersome Process

Facing the challenge of expanding its UK operations, Ocado needed to streamline its recruitment workflow, making it faster, accessible, and appealing to all candidates, particularly skilled laborers. The previous process, relying heavily on manual operations and a costly recruitment platform, led to low lead volumes and insufficient application completion rates.

Ocado's recruitment team also struggled with inefficient candidate engagement, relying on email for document collection and onboarding, causing delays and loss of vital paperwork.

Instant Prescreening: A Recipe for Success

Ocado partnered with Talkpush, integrating all sourcing channels, including job boards and social media, for a seamless candidate experience. With automatic prescreening based on preset criteria, recruiters now focus solely on qualified candidates. The majority of applicants complete the entire prescreening process within just 5 minutes. The result? A staggering 82% application completion rate!
