How The Coop Cut Time to Hire in Two Quarters

Daryl Eicher
Sr. Principal Director, Product Marketing, Oracle Cloud Platform

We had to re-imagine our recruitment service…

When you’re one of the largest co-operatives in the world with £9.5 billion in revenue and your hiring managers are spending 4 minutes and 60 clicks to open a job requisition, what will it do for in-store performance to cut that to 30 seconds and 5 clicks? Yvonne Foster, Head of Resourcing Services at The Co-op, wanted to know.

Connected HCM was part of the answer and her team set out to reduce their time to hire as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Yvonne spoke with me about their journey to digitize their Recruit to Hire process as part of our customer success series.  

Finding and engaging enough of the right talent in their retail grocery line of business meant extending and connecting SaaS and on-premises applications including Oracle HCM Cloud, Taleo, and multiple third-party systems.

After receiving estimates of two years to implement their digital strategy from SaaS and cloud platform vendors, they knew they needed a faster and less risky approach. Using Oracle Integration as their digital transformation platform, they were live in two quarters with game-changing results:

  • Labor turnover has decreased by 11%
  • Acceptance rates increased to 98%
  • Improved in-store performance  

Watch the video to discover how Yvonne accelerated her innovation by 4X.
