Case study: Supporting the care sector through the Covid-19 pandemic
By: Fatmir, redwigwam
How our award-winning temporary staffing solution supported a leading care group through the Covid-19 pandemic
Client driven needs
Our client works in partnership with people who have developmental disabilities to ensure they receive personalised, needs-led, supportive services which are evidence based, outcome driven and promotes rights, independence, choice, and inclusion.
With a large team dedicated to staffing issues, the care group needs a reliable, temporary staffing platform who provides flexibility and choice, and importantly, DBS checked staff, whenever and wherever they are needed.
This care group, like other care providers, has been badly hit by staff shortages caused by Brexit, Covid, and extensive underfunding etc. The company was relying heavily on traditional recruitment options which were costly, inefficient, and slow. The team worked hard to overcome their staffing issues, as the company was growing but a lack of staffing significantly affected their operations.
“Our people are the biggest asset and everything we do in our group is around people and for people. redwigwam fit perfectly within this approach. The way they work with us makes them very much an addition/extension to our team. redwigwam exceeded our expectations and were always happy to offer help and advice. Their flexibility to accommodate our needs, as well as their dependability as a team and the full range of services they offer, should be mentioned too. ”

The redwigwam approach
As the UK’s largest temporary staffing platform with over 170k vetted and trained staff, we believe the care sector deservers a more efficient solution to recruiting and retaining staff. We consider ourselves to be the AirBnB of recruitment - an award-winning online platform that matches you with the staff you need, straight from your pocket.
redwigwam helped our client by providing access to our AI-powered online platform to match them to the best, vetted care workers, on demand. This meant they were able to staff up, or down as they needed, and our system also allowed them to create a pool of preferred staff, which helped the smooth running of their operations.
We also provided a range of benefits, including right to work & DBS checks, PAYE, pensions, and holiday pay management. This takes all the stress out of recruitment, allowing the business to fully focus on growth and of course the well-being of their clients.
