Minor DKL and franchisees will now use the Compono-owned Shortlyster platform for all hiring, providing it with unparalleled intelligent recruitment capabilities.
SYDNEY, End-to-end talent optimisation software company, Compono, has today announced a partnership with Minor DKL Food Group (Minor DKL), a leading Australian retail food franchisor and the intellectual property owner of The Coffee Club, equating to 265 stores nationwide.
The partnership will see Minor DKL employees and franchises use Compono-owned Shortlyster for its careers platform. Franchisees will have direct access to the platform to manage their hiring needs and be able to attract candidates from multiple sources including job boards, social media and the existing Shortlyster talent pool which contains thousands of real-time job seekers.
Minor DKL hires an average of 200 workers per month across its nationwide stores. It was looking for a HR tech partner that could save its franchisees time when it came to selecting the best candidates and create a standardised hiring process that aligned to the company’s core values around customer focus, talent development and innovation. The company was also attracted to Compono’s existing and fully screened talent pool which it will now be able to access through the platform.
Nick Bryden, CEO at Minor DKL said: “Minor DKL has amazing retail brands which are driven by customer obsessed team members – The Coffee Club, Coffee Hit and Veneziano. These brands need the right people who represent and demonstrate the company brand and values. To help our franchisees build their businesses we required an innovative careers platform that could scale to the needs of the hundreds of Australian job seekers that wish to work in our retail outlets every month. Through our partnership with Compono, we are excited to be providing our frontline retail managers with an intuitive tool that will make their hiring easier, faster and more accurate.”
Compono’s co-founder and Executive Vice President, Rudy Crous said the partnership was a natural connection between two brands with shared values.
“Minor DKL needed a hiring solution that could scale for retail, hiring the right people at the outset based on their skills, capabilities, and culture fit” said Crous.
“We are very pleased to be able to deliver a hiring optimisation solution that truly meets their needs. Shortlyster will seamlessly connect Minor DKL’s franchise network with job seekers that match their unique requirements in real-time which has never been more critical for an industry directly affected by the pandemic.”
