The Adecco Group, the world’s leading provider of workforce solutions, announced today that the online staffing management platform Beeple will continue its geographic rollout in Q2 2017. The Adecco Group is a major shareholder in Beeple, a Belgian start-up that developed an end-to-end online staffing tool focused on high volume and high frequency recruitment in retail, hospitality and events. The platform offers a new way to digitise the temporary staffing business, helping to improve both productivity and fill rates.
Beeple is a tool that allows recruiters to digitise their current processes and fully integrate with middle office and back office systems, increasing efficiency and effectiveness particularly in sectors where temporary staff are used in high volumes. The technology reduces the administrative burden in all aspects of planning and operating large scale and short-term events. Beeple also improves the user experience for candidates, by providing access to a self-service online platform where they can notify their availability and view their work schedules, and where contracts and working hours are registered and processed.
Beeple began operations in Belgium in 2015. Following a strategic investment by The Adecco Group, Beeple has expanded operations to the Netherlands and Germany. In Q2 2017, Beeple will continue its rollout, making the tool available in Italy, France, the UK and Luxembourg.
“Our investment in Beeple enhances our performance in high volume temporary staffing by removing friction in the process. Clients, candidates, associates and colleagues are demanding solutions that give a better user experience and reduce administrative tasks, enabling more focus on the higher end of the staffing and recruitment value chain. This presents opportunities to transform our service offering for current customers and gain new clients by enhancing user experience and reducing delivery time and cost to serve. Our investment in Beeple perfectly illustrates The Adecco Group’s digital strategy to capture the emerging opportunities in the changing world of work,” said Marcus Sawyerr, Global Head of Digital & Innovation at The Adecco Group.
Karel Rabaut, Manager and Founder of Beeple, continued: “We very strongly believe in the synergy between The Adecco Group as a global market leader and a young start-up such as ourselves. The Adecco Group's corporate culture and vision regarding our collaboration very much appealed to us from the first moment and this is why we are very enthusiastic about the future of our partnership.”
Beeple is a Belgian start-up that was established in 2015. Since then the company has achieved strong growth thanks to the development of a cloud-based web platform for the management of temporary employees with flexible hours, pay and contracts. The online tool allows large and SME companies and non-profit organisations to easily recruit and schedule workers. Beeple invests heavily in online communication and the automation of processes, thanks to which selection, planning and payment are faster and more efficient.
