More about the Jumbo case
Jumbo’s ambition? To continuously innovate and enter new markets. In short time, the supermarket company has grown from 30.000 (in 2014) to 65.000 (!) employees now. And this growth will continue for a while.
How do you predict the quality of hire of more than 30.000 new colleagues, without concrete working experience? Jumbo does it by using data in a special way.
Focus on quality
The quality of candidates, from store assistant to fulfillment specialist, is therefore a priority. Jumbo decided to dive deep into the data to see if quality is predictable in some way. What insights do the patterns in the data provide? Which data points in the journey of talent are the main predictors of success? And how can we best fit their development to this?
The huge inflow need requires a sustainable approach. Ideally, recruiters reject as little as possible candidates. In the end each candidate is a (potential) customer as well. For Jumbowerkt.nl, the career site of the fast-growing supermarket chain, therefore the strength of the website lies in the backend. Decorating a shop window after all, also only makes sense if the warehouse is in order.
Why should this case win a Werf& Award?
“In a sustainable way we built a strong website that offers a solution to the recruitment challenges from nowadays.”
– Rosalie Lap, Marketing Manager at Endouble
According to her the case also shows that your candidates’ data from the online process can be an excellent predictor of success in actual working practice. “Where Jumbo previously invited the candidate with the most relevant working experience, now candidates are pre-sorted for the interview on the basis of these data touch points.”
